Hi, I've been lurking the site for a few years now. Figured out I should takes the time to introduce myself and my shitbox. Marin's bike doesn't seems to get any love around, but it is my second and I really like how they ride. I guess being friend with their ex concept store owner kind of help too. I'm not done bulding yet, we had to put it together fast for the season ending after m bike flew off my roof rack on the highway.
7.4kg as it stands right now (including garmin sensors+mount+bottle cages&pedals):
I know, non matching isn't to everyone's taste, but wanted to build something different. Basically:
Marin stelvio 49cm
Shimano ultegra di2 6870
Sella italia SLR flow
Ritchey wcs carbon seatpost
Still waiting for the carbon bar+stem (should be easton ec90)
Mavic R-Sys (wich are quite heavier then their listed weight by almost 100g)
Michelin pro4 sc + vittoria tube
Looking for suggestions to put the weight down a bit as it seems quite heavy, but I guess there's no miracle with 6870 ... I've weighted almost every components, so might update the list if needed.
It's been built with a FSA pf30 BB with adapters, wheelsmfg makes it all in one piece, but not that much lighter. Is there any other solutions weight/quality/price ?
