Though they were faster than me uphill, I was able to shoot past them on a technical descent and the Crumpton performed flawless. It is stiff, comfortable, and very responsive. Perhaps it is a combination of longer chain stays with a shorter front center. And I'm really liking the 7.5 cm bottom bracket drop. Nick nailed it.
    Ouch. We need more Nic at night. Thanks for the update. Someday

    Badness. That sure makes me want to send my SL back to Nick for the matte treatment.

    Here's where it is so far. I still have to run cables, tape the bars, chain, computer sensors and adjust everything. As it sits it is 11 lbs. 15 oz. The flat clear with black decals is really cool. Now if I could just get Enve to logo the bars, stem and post like the new 6.7 rims it would be really cool.

    +1....my white Corsa-M has developed a few paint chips already. I wonder how much the matte treatment will set me back.

    Gotta run what you sell if you know what I mean...

    Here's probably the last installment for tonight. It's the wife's birthday and she will be home anytime now, so there will be no more bike play for the evening. Pretty much done now. Just have to put the chain on and finish adjusting the derailleurs. Should be on the road tomorrow for a shake down run. I threw the chain on top the saddle on the hanging scale still in the packaging and I got 13 lbs. 1 oz. for a total weight. Might have to trim the seat post a little more to break the barrier.

    You will never pay a bar tab in my presence. Nice work from NIC and an good turn of the wrench by yourself.

    Alright, here is the finished build. Everything is basically dialed in and ready for a ride for the final tweaking as soon as it quits raining.

    Build list is as follows:

    Crumpton Corsa-M frameset with Enve 2.0 fork, CK headset and Sram Pressfit 30 bb, flat clear with black decals.
    Rotor 3D+ BB30 crank with 53/39 Q-Rings
    Campagnolo Super Record shift levers, front der., rear der. and 11-23 cassette.
    Campagnolo cables
    EE Cycleworks brakes with Enve pads
    KMC X11SL Ti chain
    Enve 42cm bar, 120mm stem and 31.6 25mm setback seatpost
    KCNC Seatpost collar
    Fizik Arione CX Carbon w/carbon rails
    Arundel Mandible cages in flat with aluminum bolts and washers
    Arundel Gecko Grip bar tape
    Speedplay Zero pedals with aftermarket Ti spindles
    Enve 1.25 tubular rims with black Sapim CX-Ray spokes and Alchemy Elf/Orc hubs
    Vittoria Corsa EVO CX tubular tires 23mm
    KCNC Ti skewers

    I think I got everything there. The frame is in the realm of a 54cm for comparison and it came in at exactly 13 lbs. 0 oz. as you see it with all the computer sensors and mounts, but no head unit. Ride report and better daylight pictures to follow.

    Here are some better pics from outside today. I managed to take the bike out for a 5 mile test run between thunderstorms and it appears to be good to go. It is amazing how stiff the frame is and yet seems to dampen bumps extremely well. It feels like there is absolutely zero torsional flex yet it is vertically forgiving. I can't wait to take it for a long ride tomorrow.

    Awesome bike, but I have to say it. Get those bars wrapped right so the band clamp on the shifter doesn't show.

    Sorry man, it was 10:30 at night and I wasn't happy with the way it went, but I have 10 more rolls of black in stock. I will wrap them again just for you. Frickin' awesome ride. Wish you could experience it.

    Your bike is 2 lbs lighter than what the worlds best cyclist ride. If that doesn't swell the old, head I don't know what does.

    Dorman, that's a beautiful bicycle. You are going to love it. I'm in my third year on an SL and it never ceases to amaze. Enjoy!

    I just finished a little over 40 miles on the Crumpton and all I can say at this point is: Wow! I know I need to get a few hundred miles on it to really get used to it, but this bike seems to do everything right. It's light, stiff, comfortable, stable and handles really well. I just kept thinking to myself as I was riding along: I wonder how many frames Nick had to go through to get all of the elements right (geometry and tube schedule for instance) to come up with the end result. If anyone is in the market for carbon I certainly would take a look at one of these. Thanks for all the comments. I was a little concerned with the matte clear over black decals initially, but once outside you can see the logos quite well. I wouldn't change a thing at this point.
