16.10 lbs as it is now, future updates are stans ZTR race wheels which should drop around 600g. Fun single-speed rigid budget-build!

Version 1.2. Nothing dramatically different. Buttons that are smaller and a bit more integrated. Refined shift timing, a little quicker. The battery is an icarus USB inside the seat tube.

Also I ended up replacing the Dugast for some Geax tubs which I think make the bike look a lot better. Bike rumor has some pretty good pics of it: http://www.bikerumor.com/2011/09/19/fai ... ting-more/

I agree, those all back tubs look better in this particular bike. I also like how the red KCNC seat post looks on this bike.

About the Di2, that's an awesome job... it looks so clean (apart form the wires around the handlear which for sure you'll find a way to improve).

One thing that surprises me is that this bike hasn't caught attention from the media, apart from bikerumor. I supposse it is because it lacks a flashy logo from a big company.
