low cost
stiff frame
shimano 105 5600 works better than my old duraace 7900

-
harsh to ride (stiff all the way and tubulars on 10 bars)
heavy

wheels openmould 60mm tubulars (16/20 cx rays) Bartime hubs - stiff ass hell and responsive

final weight and component list?
I write the weightweenies blog, hope you like it :)

Disclosure: I'm sponsored by Velocite, but I do give my honest opinion about them (I'm endorsed to race their bikes, not say nice things about them)

Why 10 bars? 8 is just fine.
Most "innovations" in cycling are solutions for non-existing problems.

This is weightweenies - this is heavy weight stiff madafa.%&!%" :mrgreen:

Frame: 7005 aluminium (1650g)
Fork: scott (carbone+aluminium)
Groupset: Shimano 105 5600 (brakes, shifters, crankset 175mm (53/39)
Rear deraliur is Ultegra 6700 also cassete 12-25
Pedals Look keo classic
Seatpost - something from Ritchey aluminium massive
Saddle SLR carbonio Flow
Handlebar: Truvativ team aluminium
Stem: 3T aluminium
Bottle cages: Specialized aluminium
Wheelset: test for new hubs Bartime - 60mm tubular - 1307g

with this wheelset is around 8,2kg - but wheels are responsive and very very stiff- so accelerations are joy
I think frame is from Zoulu bikes - pretty stiff stuff

This all was put togehter becpouse i dont race anymore - but i want to ride with fast group rides on smooth roads - build for speed and low budget ( i can get very nice vaication for the rest of money :)
