I will be using a Colnago CC.01 integrated stem/handlebar and a Frames and Gear computer mount.

This is exciting. Congrats on the project.
Your pic of the computer mount from framesandgear made me check them out. Ended up getting one for my enve stem cause the Kedge one sucks. So, thanks for that,
Also, maybe see if you can move this to the regular Introduce Yourself forum rather than here at the Catch All Gallery.
Keep posting your progress please. I dig this one.

Here are the specs, followed by some photographs of the final build. Other than the cockpit, computer mount, and BB cups, I was able to move everything over from my Frozen Red V3Rs. The Colnago SR9 stem is not compatible with the V4Rs, thus necessitating a cockpit change.

Frame: Colnago V4Rs Size 485 RVBK
Groupset: Campagnolo Super Record EPS 12 Disc.
Wheels: Campagnolo WTO 45.
Tyres: Veloflex Corsa EVO TLR 28mm.
Cockpit: Colnago CC.01 Integrated Handlebar/Stem. Stem = 110mm, 84°. Handlebar = 410mm wide. Drop = 122mm, Reach = 80mm.
Computer Mount = Frames and Gear
Saddle: fi’zi:k Antares Versus Evo 00 Adaptive 139mm.
Pedals: Look Kéo Blade Carbon Ceramic Ti 16Nm.
Bottle Cages: Tacx Ciro.
Bar tape: fi’zi:k Microtex Vento 2mm Tacky.

What you can say about frame quality and maybe you know weight of frame and fork?

I did not weigh the frame and fork prior to building the bike. The final weight is 7.57 kg. My V3Rs was a little lighter, at 7.43 kg.

Here are the published weights:

V4Rs Frame - 798 g
V4Rs Fork - 375 g
CC.01 Handlebar/Stem - 310 g

V3Rs Frame - 790 g
V3Rs Fork - 390 g
SR9 Stem - 169 g
Deda Superleggera Handlebar - 180 g

Nice looking bike, but I would like to see some better photos from better angels to see the whole build

The CC.01 integrated cockpit has a less than elegant solution for leaving spacers above the stem for future height adjustment. I will eventually cut the steerer tube down once I am set on the final handlebar position.

@mike Thank you for the compliment. The matte black with gunmetal sparkle gray highlights is just so kick ass, it’s ridiculous.

Is the seatpost the same as the v3rs?

Did you have to rebleed the brakes?

@mike. Yes, the V4Rs seat post is exactly the same as the V3Rs seat post. However it is an unpainted, raw unidirectional carbon (see photograph below). And I did replace the Campagnolo hydraulic disc brake hoses, so I had to rebleed the brakes.
