Hi guys...and girls:))

My winter project for this(and not only this)season is finished.

I dont like a stock bikes,in my life never buy it.Like to work with carbon,alu even with steel if is nessesery.

So I manly searching in net for inspiration,for my builds.

This last project starting last year when Shimano annunced XTR Di2.

Same parts is new,frame China made-1001 g,XTR,Tubular wheels,custom carbon chainrings,steerer/stem/bar-267g..

Other take from same older bikes,Lefty-with air internals,tubeless wheelset,XX cassete,S works crank with 177,5 mm arms,old seat/post carbon combo.

What you think?Some improvement needed?

..

Custom carbon double chainrings 36/24,63 g.

Image
Custom Di2 switch,I hate Shimano shifter :))
Image
Lefty custom rebuild with full air internals,no oil,manual lockout..
Image
final weight with Tufo tubs-7.69.

How does the XX cassette work with XTR Di2? That's a crazy build though mate, I love looking at the work people some people put into their bikes, one-of-a-kind bikes like these is what I love seeing here. Any chance of a full build list and more detail on all of the custom parts? I'd love to see more about this machine

very nice build!!! I would get a proper aluminium big ring, and change the polar computer by a garmin. Sorry for expresing my opinion, but this bike looks too much like a show room bike, and too little reliable. those discs perform really bad, saddle seems uncomfortable. If you want to reduce weight, I would rather go for one single ring in the front, and remove the derailleur. Also, I would remove the xtr display if that is possible. I had that bottle cage in the past and it is bad even for road use. I would rather use an arundel mandible, which is heavier but you don't loose the bottle once every 50 kilometers.

Wow, that is definitely a one of a kind build.

Really curious about your fork modifications, and your bar stem combo (which looks really good by the way!).

That is ridiculously cool!

You definitely need to post up more details of everything and a spec breakdown for us to admire even more :D

With a few days deelay..
Thanx for reply..
@Liggero
For now (for more thanks 500 km)carbon rings working perfect,also this seat is for my more comfy than other padded ones.
Also don't like Garmin or simillar navi device,and I am not a single ring lover.
And XTR display is because it's only option to rode with one shifter.(Sincro shift)

Air internals? Doesn't that bounce around like a pogo stick.

Cos that's what an undamped fork is......

Wow...great build man! :thumbup:

I wonder how long a narrow wide carbon chainring would last? :mrgreen:

I can't believe there isn't more interest in this bike- it is frickin' awesome!

Could you tell me more about the custom shifters please? I am Di2 curious but am not a massive fan of the XTR shifters and not sure how well the climbing shifters would work a la Ki2. I keep thinking there must be a better way :D I was also wondering about your thoughts on a smaller, lighter aftermarket battery if such a thing exists????

all the custom carbon parts are very cool. for me the part that stands out are the Hope Tech disc brakes. I used to have those, shimano xtr race m9000 brakes are quite a bit lighter & perhaps surprisingly more powerful
