So this is my Current project bike,
I have had the frame for a number of years and love the ride,stiffness and weight of it for the money.Im a student so trying to have a large frame with all of the above is pretty good.
Its a 61cm frame and weighs 990g which is not bad Since I started I've removed the Gear cable bosses with dremel,then Ive drilled into the frame then de-burred them with a fine end on the dremel.
It now weights some 963g Im having the Frame sanded and Sprayed as It needs to be blank,but im Planning on a matt black/ white colour combination.
Im trying to work out how to make the battery set up internal and lighter.. any ideas welcom bearing in mind Im non an electronics wizz.
The rest of the Build will be replacing the stock bolts on the Mechs and Jockey wheels.
Ill be running TRP 960 brakes or Dura Ace 9000,Sram Red crankset which is sanded and Will have Praxis Chainrings on or Dura ace 9000.
The Wheels will be my 4crosswheels 50mm wide rim tubs which come in at 1389g OR No tubes alpha 340 team's
Ill be running Veloflex tyres for summer use or pro4 grips for riding Spring time or Dura ace 9000.
Ive got It down (this frame) to 6.65kg with tubs and tuned sram red,but I wanted the shifting of DI2 for racing on.
