Here's my 853 dave yates, bit porky at 8.2kg (with bottle cages and pave wheels).
It gets to around 7.8kg with my lighter wheels on though.

Apologies for the bad light and dirty bike.

That's lovely, any chance of some front-lit shots of the paint? Cheers!

Here you go!
The paint is pretty spiffy, kind of metallic so of course it loves properly lit photos.

That looks great - Did he build it for you or did you build it on his course?

Here is my 853 Lugged Bike I built with him last year.

That's a good looking frame!
I wanted to do the course but didn't have the time so he built it.

If you get the time go and do it - it was one of the Nicest week I have ever spent in my life. It was great just sitting there and talking with him. Really nice guy.

I added a painted picture as well.
