I took my time to acquire bits and pieces to build this, the spec is such:

Moozes Mistral frame and fork 3k High-Monoque Carbon
FSA K-Force Seatpost
FSA K-Force Handlebar
FSA OS115 Stem
FSA Orbit carbon headset
Bontrager carbon spacers (new)

7800 STI
7800 Chainset 52/39
7900 Bottom bracket (new)
7800 Rear Mech
6700 11-28 Cassette (new)
7800 Brakes
KMC X10 Gold Chain (new)
Jagwire Racer White cable set (new)

RS80 Wheelset (new)
Schwalbe Ultremo R1 Tyres (new)
Schwalbe SV20 65g inners (new)

7800 pedals
Carbon Bottle Cages and Ti Bolts (new)
MOST Branded Selle Italia SLR XP Saddle
Fi'zi:k Bar tape (new)

The sum of ALL the parts is abut 7.5kg but I need to get it on some proper scales!
As yet un-fitted and un-ridden so plenty of tweaking to do!

    Very nice... 8)
    Find your limits...and then exceed them frequently
  • What a beautiful bike! The colour scheme goes together so well with the carbon and the red. Very jealous.
  • Thank you :-)

    The saddle was a very lucky find as its as near as an exact colour match as could be!
  • I think you need a spirit level. And do you see those thumb washers on your valves, well you do not need them with deepish rims like yours.
  • Yes I appreciate the saddle angle is somewhat creative! Shear lack of enthusiasm to adjust it on my part!
    The lack of need for the washers I was't aware of, I do prefer to use them as it stops the valves rattling!

    Nice. Is it all 2nd hand componants?
  • I've updated the main post to outline what is new!

    I know some people don't use them but I've punctured at the valve a few times while pushing the end of a track pump on. They stop the valve going in towards the tyre.

  • Hi Adam

    did you buy the frame new or did you buy it as a complete bike.
  • Hi

    It was a 2011 ex demo import!

    And they stop the valves rattling on my Reynolds rims.

    As a 'bike' it's very nice, as a 'self build' it's beautiful, well thought out components and colour scheme, must be well chuffed with it :)
  • Thanks guys!
    I am chuffed, its come together well!

    Just need it to dry up a bit so I can take it out!

    Lovely bike :D

  • Nice but what is High Monoque carbon?
  • Sorry should be Monocoque not high-Monocoque, thats a typo!

    It basically means the frame isn't built with lugs etc but is one carbon structure
