I’ve been gathering some parts from my bin, purchasing stuff and getting stuff from companies to test for this build.
I opted for the Crank Brothers Sage SL headset for its subtle green accent and it is also lighter and less expensive than a Chris King.
Cushioning my butt is this sweet Serfas Tegu saddle. I’ve ridden with this saddle a couple of times and it is super comfortable. With its Titanium rails, the saddle is not on the heavy side, but for me, comfort is king.
On the cockpit, a Ritchey stem and a Answer Carbon fiber handlebar. (Although rumor has it that controlTech will be providing some thing really cool for this bike) . To support the saddle, a Thomson Elite seatpost.
For my hands, the super comfortable Ergon GX1 Pro racing grips, these Green grips will really compliment the bike.
Rims, Crankset and brakes will probably be transferred from my KHS Solo one. PowerCordz will be my choice of cables.
I hope to have the bike built by the end of the week so I can put it through its paces.
