After I decided to go with a weight weenie build instead of going for an aero build using Look 795 Aerolight, I had wanted to build a Lightweight Urgestalt until I came across AX Lightness Vial EVO. The Vial EVO's frame is so much more delicated and well-finished than the Urgestalt. It would have been nice to have an Urgestalt to frame my Meilenstein wheels like the Lightweight's slogan!
But, if I am going to spend thousands of Euros on an überbike's frame, I would prefer the idea of my frame to be hand-built by artisan or be manufactured by trained technicians in a high tech European facility with proper labour conditions and benefits instead of somewhere in Taiwan, China or as Lightweight's trade literature puts it:" Far East"...an OEM somewhere in Asia!
Oh and the Urgestalt is 790g whilst the Vial Evo is 680g for a size 54.
It would be nice to build a Vial EVO Ultra but I find it hard to justify spending an extra €2,000 for a claimed weight saving of 60g only. Admittedly, Vial EVO Ultra does have CeramicSpeed BB as standard. It will be easier and cheaper to save the 60g elsewhere.
I intend this build to be an exercise in researching what the best carbon and lightweight part I can find for each component and it won't be a straight "AX for everything" build!
