Hi everyone.

Sold off my TMR01 and got this Protos in a custom paintwork.
Paired off with super record 2015 and my lightweight std3 tubular.
Other items are deda's superleggero bar/stem/post.

Weight with pedals and cages are 6.38kg.

The fluorescent orange and green are painted matte and it's really very bright. Having a bit of difficulty in taking pictures

And here are the pictures

With all the other stealth parts it seems like the frame is floating off the ground!

I bought them during one of my work trips in China. It is about usd10 each. I bought 6 pcs and the boss in the shop gave me a discount. The avg weight is about 17 gms each.

Pretty sure you can get them from aliexpress. Can't complain abt the quality. It's just a bottle cage. :p as long as its nice and doesn't launch the bottles over harsh roads!
