Hi All,
ahead of schedule I know (was my winter project) but here is my latest incarnation - a frame-up build Specialized Roubaix SL3, built with what I wanted and how I wanted.
Full DA 7900 kit and a nice aero-lite wheelset - sub 16lb all up inc pedals and CS200 cad.

Really comfortable to ride and climbs very well - roll on the summer sportives.

Regards,

Trikeman. :wink:

After one enormous 'cull' this is all that's left.

    Hi Declan,
    no, not my winter bike :shock:

    It was supposed to be my 'build during the long winter, spare time project', just it's been finished before I initially planned to finish it. I have ridden it on the one (or two) clear days we have had recently, but thankfully I have others for commuting and the depths of winter.

    Regards,

    looks great in blue and white. How much does the project stand you if you don't mind me asking?

    Hi YP,
    yep, I like the blue/white too (got too many black bikes as it is).

    Cost,,,, Mmmm I will have to sit down and tot up the numbers. As I enjoy building bikes my time I have never catered for in ££'s so it would only be the parts.
    I know it would be no where near the cost if this bike, with this spec, was actually sold in the shops. This is the main reason I build myself as I can build it specifically as I want it, at the time I can afford to buy a part and put it in the cupboard. Once I have everything, it all goes together.

    Regards,

    Trikeman. :wink:

    I usually don't like it when people go crazy with the colour co-ordination. However, this is an exception and I like it.

    Good job.
