Lots of bolts and goodies coming from Toronto Cycles soon to trim the Rear Mech down to c. 150 and the front to 72. Which is nice.

I think you were just better off buying the frame.

Scale frames are about £1100, complete bikes are soo much cheaper in relative terms, it also allowed me to sell on the new original bits. Sorted.

Very nice bike indeed, and I like the upgrades you are putting onto it.

I'm looking at one of these as well. Have you ridden it yet? Can you say how you find it. I'm just trying to locate a 2011 in a medium from somewhere.

Very cool bike in my eyes though.

Now updated with Spec Sheet, bottom sections shows upgrades so far:
(Dark Green highlight shows best guess on component weights, light green is verified) loads of room to save more, but really just aiming for a top end race bike that functions perfectly.
