Frame with Headset, BB Bearings, Hangar came in at 790grams. Works out to about 690gms for bare frame.
Fork with uncut steerer at 303gms
Target was to build a WW bike without totally busting my budget.
Handlebar/Stem combo got it on eBay new for a super good price so I'll close an eye to the positive rise.
Can probably bring down the weight by changing the wheelset, cranks, chainrings but will use it as it is for now!!
2 short rides on it so far. I like it - stiff, lightweight, responsive!!

Wow! Not sure about the gold chain and I'd lose the red on the seatpost if it was mine.

Nice exotic parts here and there, sourced for most of it online? I'm sure you got the wheelset from Custom Elite though - fellow Singaporean here :)

Wheelset weight sans tires is 1180 grams.
On hindsight I might have gone with the Veloflex Records as they are 23mm width.
No complains of the Extreme so far - chose them cuz of the lower weight. But the 23s might be better due to the wide rim width

Yes yes let me save up the pretty penny for a KMC DLC black chain.
Only using this as I have a couple around.
As for the Schmolke logo, I have to agree with you that it looks outta place. Just keeping it for now till I have adjusted it fully

Thats right. Frame and Seatpost from Starbikes.
Some parts from ebay and also some other European online shops when the Euro were lower.
And yes wheels are from the great guys at Elite Custom Singapore, Thomson Road.

First time I added the pictures, the pictures were too big so I had to upload a smaller version.

Let me upload more to an album and share it here!

Hanger came off at a traffic junction after 25ks.
Screws for the Rest derailleur hangar is way too short
Thankfully it was a slow one and no damage to e hanger junction.
PITA for the ride though. Prob have to find some longer fitting (+ 2-3mm?) screws and add some locktight to it.
