This might be the antithesis of a WW bike, but it does have a lot of the latest tech on it so I decided to post it here.

Specs.
Endpoint Coffeegrinder frame/Kona fork
Ultegra Di2 with hydraulic brakes
Ice Tech rotors
Shimano CX75 hubs laced to Iron Cross rims (might replace the rims) via Sapim CX-Speed spokes
Hutchinson Secteur tires tubeless (measure 29.4mm on these rims).
Zipp Service Course SL bar/stem/seatpost
Light and Motion lights Taz 1200 and Vis 180
Fizik Antares VS saddle
Campagnolo Chorus Pro Fit pedals
Cane Creak headset

I think it's almost 11kg with everything included (loaded seatbag, lights, etc.)

The ride is outstanding. Here's a little writeup I did after initial impressions.

Nice build. Next batch of tires, you might want to try the Hutchinson Fusion 3 25mm tires. I was running the 23mm versions on my 303's and they measured out to 24.3mm, whereas my current Intensives only measure to 23.9mm. You might be able to get a wider stance on the 25mm tires than on the 28's, as weird as that sounds (plus, the Fusion 3's are lighter).

Thanks. I don't think the 25 will measure out bigger than the Secteurs. On Pacenti SL23 rims (18mm internal width) the Secteurs measure about 27.5mm. These rims are 20mm internal. I'm not surprised those Intensive tires measured so small. I tried them when they came out and was not happy about that. I haven't considered tubeless for road again until now. I think 27-28mm is the right. The lower pressure (I use 60psi) makes the sealant more likely to work. It doesn't feel slow at all!

I agree about the sealant. I've noticed that when there's a puncture,on mine, the sealant will keep the pressure around 65psi. That's enough to get me to the nearest rest stop or gas station.

Nice, out of the ordinary, and not too bad of a weight for a no-nonsense, sensible, "commuter" build.

Do tell us more. Could you let us know the price of the frameset?

Here's the link. It's the brainchild of Braden. Great guy and bike designer. The fab work is Elephant so it's a name brand builder in the USA, not outsourced.

That is a badass commuter bike. Only wish it was Di2 ready that would have been a nice touch.

I forgot that I weighed the frame before building. Weight is 1985g with barrel adjusters, seat collar and headset cups pressed in.
