sounds good. a few more questions - how tall are you? i was looking at caad 10 sizing because i ride a 56cm one regularly, and it seems quite close to the geo of a 54cm course, it just has a 2cm longer head tube. i'm 6 ft. second question - how's it ride?

great overall result. i could imagine that a 105er from around that time wouldn't be bad either.

Nicely done.
I usually don't like the look of Reynolds forks, but it looks great on here.

Why no love for the Reynolds forks? I have a steel F. Moser frame on the way that i was gonna build modern with a reynolds ouzo pro fork. I think the Reynolds looks perfect on your Course.
