Dear all,
Just finished my hill climb build.
The completed bike weight is 5320g
I test rode it yesterday and it rides like a dream :)

Main points of interest are:
Litespeed Ghisallo frame
Look forks
Fixed wheel conversion
White Industries eccentric hub
Lightning crank
3/32 drive
17/44 (70") gears
Speedplay pedals

I hope you like the images. Finished bike pics and parts lists to follow.

Cheers


Dan

I'm hoping it has bullhorns. There have been a few single speed conversions posted with flat bars but bullhorns are the proper WW hybrid between drops and flat.

Need to lose that 300g. My Parlee has a heaver frame, 2 brakes and lots of gears and weighs the same :wink:

Bit of a hibrid Hill climb/light weight build.

The extra weight is in the wheels...
...the front was all I had and the rear was a special heavy build for strength with the White Industries hub and 32 spoke Mavic rim.

I couldn't lose any strength.

Pretty sure I can go sub 5000 with 2 different wheels and a new seat post :)
