The last remaining component that I needed, or rather, wanted, arrived today. A Fi'zi:k Cyrano Carbon seatpost:
It's since been installed and is up to the task of supporting the saddle. With clean lines and minimal graphics, it looks quite nice clamping my Fi'zi:k saddle, plus the lower cradle is anodized in a shade not far from titanium. The branded rubber band was removed and set aside to get lost. Now I just need to give the bike a thorough cleaning and shoot some pix of it in it's dull grey glory.
