Ghisallo's are always nice. Maybe if I had to pick one bike for the rest of my life it would b a Ghisallo, such a classic!

Amazing how "easy" you got it under 5 kg :thumbup:

Thanks, the main area of weight loss is in the wheelset, all up including cassette, skewers and tubs/tape, the RZR's are 1.49kg

This is really good for a 40mm profiled wheel.

Also the frame weighs a certified 787gms, I got the frame back in 2007, 7 years later it still looks like new.

I'm going to keep mine for as long as I can, they do make an excellent bikes

If you can find a 2007-2008 model, these are significantly stiffer due to the ovalised tubes coming into the bottom bracket.

Excellent! A couple of thoughts. You may want to check the lower stack height on the Cane Creek headset and the dropout to crown height on the Enve against your current set up since it could affect the handling of your bike. The New Ultimate clamp also works very well and is light for not much money. Will Tofu tires are light they don't roll well. When I ran them the road noise was so loud that I was actually glad when I flatted and had to put on a different tubular.

How does the Yaban chain work for you?

Yes the stack height will be effected by the Cane Creek AER , I'll have to add a spacer, or flip the stem.

I don't have much of a nosie problem with the Tufo's, maybe because I only run them at their minimum recommended of 140psi.

The Yaban chain is not as good as a Dura Ace, it shifts ok, but I don't think it's as stiff.

Those warning stickers on your wheels have got to go!

Love the build though, such a nice compliment of high performance parts.

The tubes look nice, in particular the bulge butt/swaged seat tube.

But really? An in-line seat post. I have never met anyone who needed one on a road bike, but other people tell me such people do exist. So, here's an idea for you ... Find a longish hill with a grade of 5 or 6 or 7 or thereabouts percent, and try riding up it in the saddle.

If you are sacrificing correct position so that you can use your fancy lightweight in-line seatpost that former mountain bikers sometimes like the look of, that is a mistake.

Not sure I like the look of that Reynolds fork. Looks like it is designed to take fenders.

Valbrona, looks like he could easily use a set back seatpost from the position of his saddle. But why? If he can achieve the correct position with zero set back and the post is lighter, then there is no issue. You seem to imply that a zero set back post always puts you in a sub-optimum position, which would be incorrect. So, is this a fashion issue for you?

I actually had to go to the inline post to get my right position, so it's the best of both worlds

The Reynolds UL fork is a "road" fork, so definitely not for fenders, at the time it was the lightest production fork, I think other than the THM Scapula SP it still is

Do not switch to the AER headset!!! Don't do it!!! They are crap! I say this from experience. Accept a few extra grams of the absolutely trouble-free CK headset. Look at my Ghisallo build and see. The AER headset will fail almost as quickly as you can install a new one. The Teflon "bushing" is worthless.

Is it just me or is your brake pad upside down?

They are upside down, I'm using Reynolds Cryo blue pads in the Ciamillo pad holders, there is no way to secure the pads, so if you use them the right way up they get ejected when you brake.
