After buying the same frame for my son as you can see here: BATAVUS

I contacted the seller and asked him if he had any more frames. He still had some , even new ones on stock so I ordered a 52cm frame and picked it up last week.

I also took with me a FSA K-Force Light team seatpost and a OS115 stem. The only thing that was used was the Easton fork , but a new paintjob on that later this week will make it shiny and new. The frameset has a nice weight incl. Headset of 1365 gram , so with a DA 7900 setup it will be around 7,0kg. Thinking about a set of teamwheels to go with ( Cole 50mm tubular )

At this moment the build is almost ready. The fork had the respray by a friend of mine who is a Wonderboy.

First I got all the components complete. I bought a lose part DA7900 group, and it came out nice as a matter of Budget friendly. Shifters and Crank where 99% and cost me € 350,- and a brand new DA FD was just € 39,-

After I put on the saddle I weight the bike. It is a nice 6.5Kg without peddals , but they come in next week I hope so I can do a test ride

Last week I rode the bike for the first time. Pedals came in and the weather was fine, so a 40 km ride in the afternoon to test / shift / and feel. The front of the bike is less stiff than the Addict , maybe because of the fork or perhaps the reason is that the Addict just has more materail up front.

But the bike responds well , shifting is verry smooth and the saddle is verry comfortable. I have 3 SLR Carbonio flow saddles on my other bikes and this is the first Teknologica. The test was with the RS20 wheels I also use to drive to work, curious how it will ride with the DA wheels with the Veloflex / latex combi.

Maybe for next year a set of nice 50 mm clincher wheels ..... Chinese full carbon or Shimano Dura Ace C50 clincher with alu brake surface :noidea:

Rene - congrats. love the Batavus. It's a long time since I've seen any of their frames. They were always a mainstay of the Dutch teams along with Rih and Jabo. Looks like you're based in Holland judging by the pic.
