The current pictures do show exactly what I have on my bike. The only FSA parts on my bike are the headset and the FSA Omega double crankset. It does have Tiagra 10-speed shifters and derailleur. Everything else (including brake calipers and fork) was Stratos 4ZA which is Ridley's house brand which is fairly lightweight. Tires were Vittoria Zaffiro 700x23. Unfortunately, Ridley seems to have no Icarus bike information left on their website. Before I purchased the bike, I contacted Backcountry and they were able to measure some things for me.

Just a few notes from unboxing it . . .
The frame looks solid and well-finished, not as skinny as I thought it looked in the pictures (and I got a large). The one I received has Jagwire cables and Alex DC19 rims, and of course, no pedals. It has a 10-speed Tiagra cassette and mine was a 12-28. Crankset is 50/34. I tested a 28mm tire on the front and it fit with about 2mm to spare (vertically). A 25mm tire is the biggest that fits well in front. It says it was designed in Belgium and made in Taiwan. I got estimates of 20.8 and 20.9 lbs (no pedals) from standing on two different digital bathroom scales. It comes with a detailed, 40-item checklist from a mechanic that shows that the parts were torqued, adjusted, etc. and ending with a test ride. (It is built, you just mount the handlebars and the wheels.) It does feel like it has been checked out--it shifts smoothly, limits properly set, brakes adjusted, etc. (And, my brake calipers were 4ZA (Stratos), not Tektro.)
