And the first part fitted today...my default choice clamp. The rest of the components I have already sourced I have yet to unpack but I have no time.

A not terribly brilliant picture of progress so far.

Forks: Pace RC31 C Type (Ti inside) not sure I will keep these
Wheels: Silver CK on 717 Sapim CX spokes silly light
Headset: King
Stem: Syntace F99
Seatpost: Syntace Carbon P6
Clamp: Salsa

I rather like the monochrome look, and I'm not a weight weeny, but it seems very light.
