New X Carbon in white just turned up.

If no one calls to get it in the next hour, I am just gonna have to build it up and mount it. On the other hand, it sure is nice as a frame only. All that carbon feels good in your hands. Warm and smooth.
OK-I have to be alone for a little while.

Enough photos?

Impatience

Nice sunny day, so I put it together. Just needs a front derailleur, chain, and housing.
Plus to cut the steerer and brake hoses.

Anybody need a new race bike for this season?

Hey Bob,

Beautiful frame! Question for you. How is the derailleur hanger secured to the frame? Did you by chance weigh the frame before built her up?

3 bolts that come from the inside and bolt into the hanger.
5.19# without seatclamp.
I imagine weights will vary from frame to frame.

Limon on weight weenies forum got a different count on his black frame.

No bar ends

Still have to mount the remote lockout on these narrow bars. No room.

Added some Sun Disc Jockey Equalizer wheels for a flash of ano red.
