Finished the build under 5kg/11lbs and rode 20km on it. It rides great but I think a bit shorter stem and a more flat bar angle would be better. These bars are not very comfortable for riding on the tops because of the downward swoop.
The Cannondale top cap needed some filing on the upper fins to get them to fit into the steerer tube.
On these rims the tires measure 25 and 26.5 mm which is awesome for sub 1300g wheels. I wonder how wide the puncture stip is and if the extra tire width makes punctures more likely.

Xpedo R-Force Ti XRF06TT single sided SPD pedals are 164g for the pair and around $160 on eBay. I wouldn't recommend these for most people riding SPD but for weight weenie purposes they work great and are very light.

Looking back on this build I'm really happy with about half the parts selected but the overall execution is a failure. Even with the horrible stem angle from the pictures this bike wasn't what I wanted to be riding so I'm parting it out.

The combination of the too small frame and the pre-cut fork I bought to try to cut costs meant I couldn't get the position I wanted. Adding in the delicate frame, compromised bullhorn ergonomics, and annoying one sided pedals; trying to over WW this build on a budget made it really miss its mark.

How did it ride ?

you could have had a no carbon under 5k bike :))

Amazing project and I wish I had your patience to rebuild my commuter under 5 kg. Are you selling the wheelset?
