    I was gonna wait until I got my next paycheck to start this, but im probably going to get paid in the next 10ish days and i'm bored. I traded my Reynolds SDV66 Track wheels for the frameset, which I thought was an awesome trade. The size is a M/L, also many of the frames tubes are wrapped in a protective tape/plastic. There will be many phone pictures Heres a Picture after I picked it up

    Then I got home and stole the bar and stem from my Rush Hour Pro to put them on the frameset (Ritchey superlogic evolution and Ritchey WCS 4axis stem)

    It weights 1.97kg as shown

    Giant decal on headtube (The Headtube it's self is also Giant)

    The fork (Full Carbon and not one of the recalled ones)

    Top tube

    Seatstay decal

    Here are the planned specs
    Fizik Arione CX braided... which I have
    Sram force RD, Crankset, brakeset, shifters, Sram Red chainrings and cassette. And the 2013 Sram red FD
    Bar tape will be Black Lizard Skin DSP tape
    Wheelset will hopefully be a Reynolds Attack, Looked at prices and it not as much as I thought.
    I was planning on getti Reynolds Attacks, but they don't seem to be to good. Thoughts on wheels? What to go with? Lo profile carbon would be awsome, but I may have to skip on them.
    Tries will be Conti GP4000S, if I go with clicnchers. Debating if I should go with clinchers or tubulars. Thoughts?
    Need to figure out which bottom bracket to get and I think thats it.
    Is it bb30 bottom bracket? This is gonna be a great build.

    I'd get some Stans Alpha wheels
    1395 grams per set, tubeless ready and just 750 for a set. \

    Eh I'm not liking those that much
    Posted By: TrackerI wont have enough for the RD after I buy the group, but he said I can order it when ever I get the money.
    Edit: A force group is going to run me about the same so I dont see why not.
    Edit #2: I should have posted about this in my build thread...

    Bringing it here.

    I think for the Force group will be better deal for you. The Force function wise is just as good as red. Its just not as light. Force is a great group alread and for under a grand you get the entire group new.

    Still a bit to much though, I'm sure im getting a sram red group next weekend so I might have to cut back on the wheels. Probably some ksyriums or some wheels I find a good deal on CL or ebay.

    I love my reynolds attacks. Cool frame, I almost got that, but got the Cannondale Supersix instead.

    Also does anyone know a way to tighten the seatclamp bolt? The one that needs to be tighted from the top, a way that will involve less cursing and such things.

    But why not keep the FD and BB? I thought sram stuff was top notch :S

    Go all red, you just need a rd, chain and cassette.
