Big tire road bike for Santa Monica, Calif.

This bike is going to live in my old neighborhood from my junior high school days. The bike is outfitted with the  Shimano 105 5800 eleven speed group. The shifting is about as nice as it gets, even with the long cage der. and 11-32 cassette for the dirt roads above Will Rogers state park.
 The brakes are long reach R-450 in black and seamlessly blend with the rest of the group. I built the wheels with Mavic Open-Pro rims and D.T. spokes. Bar, stem and post are Ritchey and the saddle is a Fizik Arione. The headset is a King, also in black. The rider should have the bike tomorrow afternoon-plenty of time to get it ready for the weekend.
