G'day Justin

I hope you will be pleased with what I have done with your frame. The complete bike turned out exactly as I hoped. I wanted to build it up myself, for the experience and so that I would be fully confident to do my own maintenance. I used Dura-Ace wheels, cassette and chain, T.A. Carmina triple crankset and Phil Wood titanium bottom bracket, Ultegra derailleurs and brakes, a titanium seat post, Selle Italia carbon fibre saddle, FSA alloy bars and 3T alloy head stem. For longer Audax rides that go into the night, I add two taillights and two Busch and Mueller Ixon headlights.

I'm delighted that it weighs 7.8 kg (17.2 lbs) ready to ride, 9.8 kg (21.6 lbs) with lights, pump, spare tubes and multi-tool. It goes up hills better than any bike I've ever had and handles beautifully at speed on the way down.
