Funny to see that others also thought about getting the frame.
Any suggestions for getting a larger drop between the saddle and the bars? Either using this frame, or looking into the future, are there other frames that are more suitable? Leg implants are out of the question. Actually I don't know if want to get lower but this is the lowest I've been and it would be nice to find out where it's not comfortable anymore.

I thought you went deaf?
So you just need some black cranks and chainrings now
Yes, once I find a cheap or vastly superior replacement for the SRM. It works so well and it's rather expensive too. I never get around to sell off my old stuff so I'm reluctant to swap out the expensive things.

Build list sounds a bit pretentious, especially since I haven't really put too much thought into it. But off the top of my head it's something like this:
Frame: Storck Absolutist 0.9 size 51.
Fork: Storck aero.
Wheels: Edge 1.68 tubular with Tune hubs. Rear is triplet racing. The wheel builder hadn't done a great job so I rebuilt them myself before the season. So far, so good. tubs are Veloflex Carbon. I was looking at getting the Extremes, but then decided against it as I ride through glass on almost every ride before hitting the real roads.
Bars: Syntace Racelite2 in 46 with Syntace Cork tape (anything narrower and I can't ride after a week. As the 46 fixes the problem I haven't been to the doctor but it seems like Ulnar tunnel Syndrome).
Stem: 3T team -17, 130mm.
Headset: Cane Creek/Ritchey.
Brifters/RD/FD/Cranks/ DA-7800 (SRM)
Seatpost: Syntace p6 carbon.
Seat: Aspide - Carbon FX Arrowhead
pedals: time ulteam Ti carbon.
Cables and housing: Yokozuna
Some custom bolts (some of the custom ones are still on the CD I think)
Is that a complete bike?
Not sure if I can trust my fishing scales but dirty and full of Pitstop it was 6.81kg with the computer mounted. With the other bottle cage and no dirt it might be 6.80.

Yep. Where the tubes are round it was easy, but all the joints and hard to get to places were a pain. From a monetary perspective it would probably have been better to work more and buy a custom painted frame, but that's me in a nut shell, I always do stupid things myself that it would have been cheaper, better and/or easier to have someone else do.
