EDIT:: OFFICIAL 11LB CLUB MEMBER :evil:

This build was based off of reviews and help from this forum, so thank you all.

FM066SL -890g
FM066SL Fork Cut-330g
Sram Red Rear Derailleur-146.1
Sram Red Front Derailleur-69.1
2012 Specialized S-Works Saddle- 114.0
Hollowgram SISL cranks, Chainrings, Look Keo Blade Carbon CroMo-681.6
Zipp 303 2010 tubulars, continental competition tires. Sram Red 11-26
Cables- All Power Cords , Power Cords Swift Housing
Edge Composites Bars, Sram Red Shifters, Rotor S3X 90mm Stem-577.2
Planet X skewers-42
Hong Fu Carbon Cage-23
Seat Post-100g
Zero G Brakes-200
Omni Racer Seat Post Clamp-8
Bottom Bracket-78.6

I got it into the 12lb range with not very light clinchers , and durable gp4000s tires. The bar tape is the new Fizik "sticky" tape, its very very good. towards the end of this season, I'd like to switch to SR , but for now, its about where itll stand.


***My opinion on powercords cables and new swift housing..Overall build quality is very good. It looks very good on the bike, and is about 75% lighter than regular jagwire or others. The cons? whatever bike shop you go to to get these installed will not only hate you, but prepared to pay a ton to have them installed. They are way harder to install than regular cables, my shop is experienced, and it took them a solid 8 hours to install my cables. In the end, comparing them to regular steel cables, they cost 10x more, are 100x harder to install, harder to adjust, they don't shift any better than steel cables, all for a little weight savings. On a positive note, PowerCords has excellent customer service.

I do like the build but have to agree that powercords outers are beyond the pale to install, Ive got the AICAN Bungarus fitted and it took about 1/2 hour to run all the cables even accounting for me dropping pieces like a gazillion times and the dog eating a few, think the attached inner liner that they have is the way to go...

On a side note, I'll most likely be selling this s-works saddle. My butt doesnt agree with it.

by the way, if anyone is wondering.. This cost me about $3200.00 to build. My first road bike was a bottom end cannondale supersix, weighed 18.2 pounds , and cost $3200.00 . Makes me kick myself.

It rides really well ! I cant tell much difference between this and my cannondale supersix. One thing that I HATE are these damn zero G brakes. After every other use, the right side stays against the rim and as im riding i need to lean forward and adjust it. I was told that because these are single pivot, theres no way to keep them centered..

One other note. Because its so light, i dont go very fast on descents . If I had heavier wheels or heavier bike , I'd have more momentum.

Wow. That's an insane build.

How do you like the FM066SL frame? Who did you order it from, and did you have any problems with payment/shipping?

I'm seriously considering this frame for my next frame.
