After much research I have started the build for my wife. She is 5ft3in and has really improved her riding over the summer. She was looking for a new lighter bike to go alongside her heavy touring rig and I was looking for a project; hopefully this will come together for her birthday in two months time.
Stuff I have so far:
Thats 2.4kg so far but my cheap luggage scales think 2.5kg!
Wheels are going to be matt black 43mm tubulars from yinshun 1300g and should be here soon; the group set is going to be force (2107g) and will be ordered soon.
Any tips on design? I like the understated pink highlight on the saddle and am thinking I may leave out any more 'pinking' and go with white bar tape and possibly pink speedplays (170g), I am also toying with pink Planet x brakes.
Advice also appreciated on some good value tubs, not the mega expensive kind and how to measure and buy ti bolts for the stem, bottle cages and topcap.
Goal is to be under UCI weight.
