Show me your BLACK bike!

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Hey cool bike. I like the green tape, and the way you run the Shimano theme throughout. Even the stem.

Thanks... Yes, the underlying theme with this one is Shimano carbon throughout.
The stem and bar are both Shimano Pro Vibe carbon, then there's with the Selle Italia SLR Carbonio saddle, and the Look Keo 2 Max carbon pedals. (the only non Dura-Ace part on the bike, but only because it's my preferred system).

Weight is about 7.5kg if I remember right.
Is your frame/wheels just unbranded copies of production units? Was purchasing them easy? How long did shipping take?

The more I see this, the more I love it. Deda and SR should be together here. I think you're blowing it with Shimano.
