Hello everybody,
Usual story, been reading for years, didn't post anything meanwhile... Found usefull tips about making a custom di2 battery and light parts so I thought let's post te bike I just finished!
Took me about 10 month to build it, searching the internet for used (and cheap) parts. Except for the frame, di2 group, seat, tubes and bartape everything is used. All the other parts were just a lot cheaper than usual;) Made a custom battery that's in the seatpost.
So here is my new bike. With zipp 303 and light parts it's 5730 grams. With zipp 404 and more reliable parts it's 6138 grams.
Question, likes and dislikes are very welcome!

I'll be the first to admit I'm quite stunned at the final weight, especially given it has Di2.

Well done :beerchug:

Really nice - if I ever get Di2 a hidden battery is a must so much nicer looking.

Awesome build. I love the paint job too. The minimal but BOLD logos look fantastic.

I'm in the process of getting my Storck F0.6 fitted with battery in the seatpost. Seeing your bike I'm even more convinced it's worth doing. Great build and incredible weight for Di2.

Thanks for the replies. Didn't dril the frame, it is Di2 ready. Wouldn't risk losing my guaranty;)
