sold the previous ride here on WW and now building up this one.
initially eyed this one but my size had a tall seattube c-t for my liking so looked at other brands. got confirmation that the actual c-t measurement was lower than in the geometry. thanks mdeth1313 for verifying!

this will be a weight concious build but still sturdy enough to ride anywhere.
hope youll like it.

if there ever is something to nitpick, would have preferred if the rear brake routing was fully internal. this is a novel way to do, bbq the headtube and exit outside but it was not a dealbreaker for me.

will recycle some leftover parts from the previous build, resurrect some stashed parts and will get new ones to match the build.

I was going to replace my Parlee Z5SL small/tall with this frame because i was under the impression it weighted less. My 2012 Z5SL small/tall frame weights exactly 770 grams and the fork 300 grams even. None the less, its a very pretty frame. I like the paint scheme.

You could dremel some off that stem still onthe bar clamps by the looks of things! How much does it weigh?

106g with the stock steel bolts. havent weighed with ti bolts yet which i intend to. pics on the web show it at 88-92g with ti bolts.
that should be fine with me. id prefer the the security, even if just psycholigical, and the 2-3g of material staying on the clamp than worrying about coloring the exposed part after.

Ti bolts will bring it to ~100. There's no way that changing six small bolts from Steel to Ti will result in a loss of more than 10g.

Yeah, I know. I too have a 90mm stem (see my build).
Like I stated: There's no way that changing six small bolts from Steel to Ti will result in a loss of more than 10g.
If you're at 106 with steel, at most you're looking at 96g. Not the "88-92g" you're stating. If you did, it would be shocking.

Might I ask what you used to debagde the stem? I know Acetone does the trick, but your stuff seems to stick much better.

I really like this frame, but I'm a bit confused by the geometry too. Can I ask how tall you are?

I'm 171 cm tall, previously on a small DeRosa Merak Evo with 53.5 cm TT (until it was destroyed by a car).

The Neil Pryde fit tool keeps putting me on the M frame. I've ridden a 54.5 cm TT before and wasn't too comfortable. I might make it work, but... (Yes, I know about stack & reach).
