Do you have a spec list?

Better picture of your bike?

Looks light

Bro,

Awesome bike. Where do you go riding in singapore? I used to ride like ubin, sentosa, sembawang...but stopped 6 years back. And now i'm picking it up again in Boston. Maybe we could ride when i'm back in singapore.

Sorry to hear about your crash. Breaking a lever means that you're overtightening it. Your lever should be just tight enough not to move on normal use but loose enough to give-in in case of a crash

As much as a weight weenie i'd wanna be, i'd still wouldn't buy carbon on most parts due to it being unpredictable, especially when there are nicks. Also i'm on a low budget, purchasing and maintaining. Hopefully when my spending power increases, i'd reconsider. But for now, aluminium is for me.

Hopefully i can post my bike by the end of the week for your critic!
