Hi, first post for me, felt it was only right to post my bike as have benefitted from the great advice on this forum.
The aim was to self build a sub 6.8kg bike that was predominantly Shimano 105 based - practical and light second bike.
I had to bin the ugly and heavy 105 chainset, I bought a KCNC chainset instead. Saddle is a bit heavy and intend to replace it with a selle italia kit carbonio and that will bring bike weight down to 6.76kg and meet its weight target.
Frame came in at 885 grams for a 54, hongfu were professional and efficient to deal with, dispatched bike very quickly, customs delays were the real wait, all in it took a month to arrive from the order date.
Ride is great, nippy and fun. Its a 54 so a smaller frame than my other bike and its a compact 50/34 so it is a contrast for those reasons alone. I would say its not as stiff/fast as my other bike but its lightweight nature is ideal for the hills and more forgiving on rough roads.
Very happy with the bike, it looks as good as I had hoped it would and I would recommend the frame to others considering it.
