WOW :oops: :roll:

Very impressive ride. I really like the colour scheme.
If you want to shed some more weight, you might want to use a DA or record frontmech.

Not sure if you after suggestions, but you'll get some from me just in case... :wink:

Suggestions are only meant to be helpful. You already have a great bike...!

strange mixture of top end mtb kit with the following sticking out...


Chain
KMC X-10 would shave off 20g

XT Cranket
upgrade to Extralite, Power arms or Middleburn?

LX front mech
upgrade to DA? or if your feeling flush campag?

XTR rear mech
DA7800 is 20g lighter. Only usable if you go down the 12-27 roadie cassette route.



FSA bar
Upgrade to Schmolke or Easton carbon bar?

Seat binder
Extralite would shave off 5g

Seatpost
USE alien? or a host of others around the 150g mark

I love the bike! Nice build, and very slick looking. Red is really the best color for a bike. I mean, who wants a blue bike as a kid?

How do you like the nokon cables/extralite levers?

I love the drop-outs of the Orbea-frames. :D
To me the red would look better in mate rather than in gloss, but that depends on personal preferences.
Very good build! 8)

crazy_weight,

is that disk version of Notubes rims that you are using with V-brakes? What type of brake pads are you using with that combo? After one year can you compare it with standard V-brake rims (performance in wet/dry conditions...is there significant difference in stopping power...etc.)?

Is it brand new or have you tried it? I'm curious about your ax seat - how does it feel? flexy, hard... or just good? :-)
