Nice to see Basso here. I like their bikes. Do You know real weight of frame and fork?

The real weight of frame and fork are very similar with these which the company provides.
881 grams for the frame and 345 for the fork (size 51) (920 and 360 by the company for size 56)

Tell us your plans for the changes... :noidea:
I think it's best to start with changing the wheels.
You are missed most important thing in your build list !
How much does it weight ?

It's a very nice build, but a black frame with white lettering just doesn't say "Italian racing passion" to me.

Are Basso bikes made in Italy?

I like the shape of the tubes.

My plans for the bike are to change the groupset with Campagnolo Super Record 11,
changing these heavy wheels with Campagnolo Eurus and maybe 2 carbon bottle cages for now.
The bike will be assembled with these part after a few days !

Sorry, but now I have problems with my weighing machine. :oops:
The bike will be weighted with the new parts ! :beerchug:

Can we do Chorus groupset and Bora One tubular wheels instead?

Chorus performs really well, and saves you enough coin for some swank Boras. If you want, get CULT bearings for the crankset and it is basically the same as SR but only 200 grams more.

Meanwhile your Boras will be more fun than the Eurus,

And we are going to convert you to proper tubulars, some Veloflex made in Italia please.

Thanks for the idea but i bought these wheels for trainings.
Maybe the next wheelset will be Lightweight Standard or Obermayer. :)
