So after what seemed like an eternity waiting for Fedex to deliver (they also scratched the frame, but that's a whole different conversation altogether...we'll see what their claims department comes back with), my first TT bike:

Griffen frame
Dura Ace RD, FD, chain, shifters
Ultegra brakes and cassette
FSA SL-K carbon standard crankset
Profile Design Carbon 1.5X bars
Profile Design Quick Stop Carbon levers
Blackwell 100s

I really need to do something about the red saddle...but thats for another day.  Can't wait to get it out on the road!

Hot! It's going to be a long day if you have to wait until after work to give it a spin.

Oooh....very nice.

Yeah, you need to do something about the red seat. Some matching custom decals for the wheels would also look super sharp.

Your bike looks faster sitting still than mine does going downhill.

I wish I could do something about the decals.  I've heard that the Blackwell deals are underneath some coating, so they aren't easily removed.  If someone knows more than that, suggestions more than welcome.

Really? Not saying it's not true, but it seems odd to put a clear coat on wheels. While it might protect them a bit from minor scratches, it also adds weight. Never looked close enough at a set to know the answer.

That was according to a ST forum that I saw.  Said the decal was located underneath a clear coat of paint on the 100mm and 50mm, but not the disk.  I understand you'd have to sand through the clear coat to get them off...which I don't think I'm prepared to try.

You could try "blacking out" the yellow on the wheels with a black sharpie.
If you don't like how it looks, you can remove the ink with rubbing alcohol.
