That looks great!
I´m starting to get interested in their stainless frame, but it says 1,94 kg on their website.
That seems a bit heavy being stainless.
Did you way the frame by any chance?

1800-1900g is not unusual for a modern steel frame. My Columbus Spirit one (57) has over 1800g as well. Custom builders go lower routinely, but production usually takes less chances with regard to denting.

Thanks Pete for the info, that´s good to know.
I´m attracted to it being stainless and that the frame´s very versatile.
The weight isn´t all that much, but I´d be putting out some dosh in getting it so I don´t want it to be too much of a porker :D

Thanks Bonty Boy

I never weighed the frame as it came as complete bike.

The bike feels rubbish with the Alex/105 wheels on from the factory. Not a fault with the package just mass produced wheelbuild i think. You can hear the spokes ting and loosen over each ride. I immediatley thought what have i done buying this. But i knew it was the wheels.

What a difference with the H Plus son wheels From DCR.

I trained on this the whole winter for the Cape Rouleur. Great high milage bike, Super comfy and hauling the extra weight uphill helped my training as i was flying on the good bike. My bikefitter set it up the same as my racebike hence the -17mm 130mm stem etc.

Its great to have the fixed proper mudguards instead of crud racers.

Only one gripe. I thought stainless never rusted? Signs of rust if you dont dry it off.

Build quality is superb tho and there is some nice touches. For me it looks like a classic and i'm sure it will serve me well over many winters.

Cheers :beerchug:

That's a nice looking bike. Plenty of scope to lighten it up if you want to. Stainless can show some surface staining but is easily polished off.
My Columbus Spirit frame with a 58.5 cm top tube and 44mm head tube weighed 1836g unpainted.
