Here is my winter build project, complete. It's a dedicated hillclimber, I'm hoping to shed a few more kg myself over spring and summer, before possibly taking it to my local club hillclimb TT in September. 

Comes in at 5.99kg, and was built from mostly used / second-hand components. Obviously I had a budget to stick to, and this is not a no-compromise all out featherweight. However I'll be scouring eBay for alternative wheels, cranks, tyres, etc to come up and so there's definitely a few hundred more grams that could come off.

Frameset: Boardman SLR Race Signature (ex ONE Pro Cycling / Kamil Gradek)
Wheels: Mavic Ksyrium SL25 / Ti skewers
Tyres: Michelin Power Time Trial 23mm / butyl tubes
Bars: FSA Energy 40cm (cut back)
Stem: Prime Doyenne Lightweight 100mm
Rear mech: Shimano Ultegra 6870 Di2 / SM-R600 shifter
Crankset: Specialized carbon crank / TA Specialities 33T 1x ring
Cassette: Shimano Ultegra R8000 11-28T
Brakes: FSA SL-K calipers / Specialized Top Mount levers
Saddle: Selle Italia SLR Tekno Flow / Toseek carbon post
Pedals: Shimano Dura Ace 9000 SPD-SL

You seem to have put the forks on the wrong way up.

The frame's upside down too.

This is my S-Works Roubaix Team. Effectively a Roubaix with the geometry of a Tarmac.

I suppose technically it's sort of a picture of your bike, but I'm not sure you quite got the spirit of the thread...

[Edit: Also, I'm particularly pleased that I managed to get comment 1337 on this thread :o) ]

Hope you enjoy the bike, I'm not jealous, honest...

This is a replica of the 1985/1986 La Vie Claire TdF winners, as ridden by Bernard Hinault & Greg LeMond. It's a Reynolds 753R frame & fork, with most parts sourced either NOS or used/servicable. Equipped with modern brake pads & tyres however, and I am taking it to Eroica Britannia later this year, now it has returned.

Maybe, maybe not. It had been on for quite some time, overpriced IMO for being in apparently not the best condition and having a QR/post-mount rear end. I offered what I thought was a fair price when it was first listed, but the seller declined. Then I waited a few weeks while it got relisted at lower and lower prices. I ended up getting it for what I originally offered.

A previous bike24 fire sale on Campag bits means the cost to build was just over £1600. It replaces a Kinesis T3 which I *should* sell, but may just keep for when I need to lock a bike up, as the Mason just looks a bit too flash.

You've got an absolute bargain there.

It's always good to have a pub bike too so I'd keep hold of the kinesis as well, can never have too many bikes!

Nice build. I rode LEJOG on my Definition in 2017 (I bought it with that trip in mind), and it was a great companion. What guards are you using? I have recently snapped the SKS Longboards that I had on it, so looking for replacements.

Please give us a rundown of the parts.

She's a beaut!

I especially like the hammered mudguards.

They're Kinesis Fend Offs. Nice aluminum guards, but a bit of a faff to fit. Had to drill out the rivets on the front guard mount and reattach it the opposite way round with new rivets, as there's no front-facing mounting point on the Mason fork. Then had to reprofile the guard using pliers wrapped with electrical tape so that it would fit between the fork legs. Also had to drill a hole in the rear guard and source a 5mm plastic stand-off to make use of  the seatstay bridge mount. But solid enough once fitted, definitely won't be snapping!

Thanks. Have to admit I've always paid a LBS to fit my guards for fear of this sort of faff and making a pig's ear of it!

Succumbed to an ebike 11 speed 11-42, 46F. Was great getting home against a massive headwind.

The dry tech fenders are a great shape and I'm surprised they don't come as part of the build.

The insurance company asked me how fast does it go - 'well, I have done just over 30 on it, but it really depends how fast you pedal and whether it is downhill'

They insist I lock to something in the garage, so a hiplock ankr is due today.

Also just had to buy a new roof carrier as I suddenly realised the current would not fit around the wide down tube !

Hello from Bay of Kotor, Montenegro and my Cervelo Aspero, doing very well on and off roads here. Very fast bike, I only replaced the stock saddle with Brooks Cadmium C17... also very happy with Donnelly tires.
