My first build post here. Sourced and built this for a neighbor who wanted to get back into riding. Initial goals for this project were 6.82kg (15 lbs) and $2K USD. We came pretty close on both. It is built around a 57cm Miracle FM004. Measurements are 57cm ST c-t, 57 ETT, 18.5 HT, 41 CS, 73/73 degree angles. The frame was finished very well and the build went together smoothly. The bike rides very nice and mutes road imperfections well. The wheels are surprisingly stiff given their weight and spoke count. The owner's last name is Turner hence the frame stickers from the MTB company of the same name.

looks very nice! the seatpost, saddle, and tires could save you a fair bit of weight... at least down to 6.9kg...

Thanks, keep in mind there was a $ goal for this project also. The saddle was probably the most underquoted piece of the build. Mfr claimed 200g, actual 235g. I didn't think 210g for a 31.6 / 400mm post was too bad given that it is a setback style, plus I have a thing for matching the post to the handlebars. Started with these tires for now given their toughness on our well sanded streets during the winter. Mid-summer may see lighter tires.
