Box of what?

Well today I have received the majority of my Project One build. The frame of the TTX is in it's second stage of paint and the box-o-carbon parts has shown up. The parts list are as follows:
1 Bontrager Race X-Lite Carbon Compact cranks 50x36
1 Bontrager Race XXX-Lite Carbon stem
1 set Bontrager Race XXX-Lite Aero brake levers
1 Bontrager Race XXX-Lite Carbon cage
1 set Dura Ace bar end shifters 10 speed
1 Dura Ace chain
1 Ultegra front brake
1 Ultegra rear brake
1 Ultegra front Derailleur
1 Ultegra rear Derailleur
2 Sram 11x23 10 speed cassettes
1 Blue Bontrager Cork bar tape
1 pair Bontrager Race X-Lite Aero Rims
4 Bontrager Race TT tires
1 Cane Creek IS headset

I am missing a basebar and aerobars which should be here next week. For that I am also going with the Bontrager separate Carbon bulhorn and Carbon aerobars for their superior adjustabillity. I had originally ordered a one piece basebar/aerobar Bontrager Race XXX lite but went for the cheaper and more flexible option. I also went with the Ultegra components to save a bit of money to get some of the extras like the second cassette for the Hed 3 rims and new tires. I am not a weight weenie so spending the extra $$$ on grams lighter Dura Ace components didn't make sense. I could shave more weight not stuffing that last Calzone down my throat tonight for dinner or going out and run a bit more. I will post pics when the build is complete. I am so excited!

Good kit. Give me a yell if you need a hand with the build. Bar end shifters are a pain sometimes.
