Here is my current weight weenie project! LOW Standard track bike. Current weight on it is 15lbs 10 oz. I have new Mack Superlight Track hubs coming in soon for a lighter wheelset, and am still deciding on what new saddle to go with. Also a couple drive train changes coming along with the new wheels which should lighten it up too. Trying to get into the low 14lbs range with it.

Low Track Standard Frame Custom Paint 53cm
Enve Track Fork
Chris King Sotto Voce Pink Headset
Pink Phil Wood Seat Clamp
Enve 110 mm Stem
Enve 31.6 Seatpost
Enve Compact Drops
Deda Tape
Selle Italia SLR
Velocity Deep V rims to Pink Phil Wood Hubs
Sram Omnium Crankset
Pink Chris King Ceramic Bottom Bracket
50t Sugino Zen Chainring
Look Keo Blade Ti Pedals
Izumi Super Toughness Chain
17t Phil Wood SLR Cog
Phil Wood Ti Lockring
Rear Phil Wood Chrome Domes

I removed the white Enve logos and had custom stealth black logos made like for Enve wheels, but they are reflective! They look glossy black, but under light they are reflective. Very neat decals.

If any one is interested in some of the custom reflective decals for themselves, send me a message!

Okay I'll bite. I just recently got a cheap fixie and swapped out a bunch of parts but Besides cast offs I don't have that much into it. With a steel fork I'm about 16 lbs. I am running a front brake only with a cross top lever for emergency since it is a training/ commuting bike. Going fixed gear is a total blast. All I want to do is ride that bike.

Enough of me. I do love your build!

Fixed gear is super fun! My wheelset is just to heavy. I love it but need something lighter!

That is probably the first (and last) Low I ever liked.. Very nice indeed.
Can't quite figure out why you wanna go WW on it, but hey, it's your bike.

Diggin' the custom logos.. :)

Sorry to tell you this, but the colors on this bike is just :shock:
Purple and yellow mixed up, is just bad in my opinion, not to mention the Gold Envesticker on the handlebar. It's cool when people makes something unique, but I would prefer if colors matched up. On the other hand, it looks like a fast bike with those components. I'm sure its a trill to ride. :D

I have been looking at your bike for some time now. I like it. It's some crazy colors, and you have done something different. :thumbup:

Enve sticker is black. It is reflective and when I used the flash in the day light the color came out gold. It's just a bike an I like color :D

Put this lime green chain on your bike to give it a little pizazz.

Very nice build! How do you like the sugino zen? Did you ever ride with the stock omnium ring? Im planning to pick a zen and that izumi chain for my track bike soon.

If you want to make it lighter (you still have to be UCI-legal to race track), the first place would be the wheels. Even if your track is really rough (like ours), you can run a pretty light wheel and tire combo. Our track is pretty rough, so I run a light road TT tubular set-up, which will still be way lighter than what you are running...
