Hello,

I thought I would put together a BH Ultralight with some weenie parts. If I can drop weight elsewhere, please let me know how. I used AICAN Bungarus housing with PowerCordz for shifting. The performance on this combination is absolutely terrible as the PoweCordz seem to stick inside the housing/liner. Any advice on how to get this combo to work better would be appreciated. I am probably gonna just switch them out to steel cables or maybe the KCNC Ti Cables. I was also thinking about using the Ax Lightness Ax6000 fork that I have. I decided not too because I wanted to live past my 40th birthday. The Cirrus Ultralite Ti pedals are also very scary as it is not an easy task to clip out of them. In fact, I snapped my TUNE bottle cage trying to get my right foot out of them. I will probably switch the pedals out too. Thanks for looking :)

To all that are curious about the frame and fork weights here they are. The Ax Lightness fork is much lighter (uncut weight) but I cannot find the courage to ride it.

very nice build, but I am less than impressed with the frame weight. Did that include all the required hardware (bottle cage bolts, internal routing pieces, rear der hanger etc?)

I say this because my size large frame came in at 2 grams heavier (825 g)

When I put together the bike, the frame was the last thing I purchased as I was deciding between the BH ultralight, the 2014 Addict SL or the Ax Lightness Vial EVO. I went with the BH because I liked the black on black color scheme and wanted to try out the BB386 BB standard. The frame weight did surprise me somewhat as I was expecting a lighter weight for a size small. The weight includes the derailleur hanger and the internal cable guides (blue cables that you remove after installing cables). Before weighing the frame, I removed the bottle cage bolts and cable stop panels. I was really hoping for a sub 800 gram weight. It seems that the 2013 and 2014 models with the internal cable routing weigh a little more than the 2012 version with the external cable guides.

guys....you are crazy! :wink:
30 or 40 gramm more or less...sorry. who cares??

i think, this is a very beautiful frameset, and an impressive build.
the ax-fork seems not to be made for tapered head-tubes. combining it with the bh-frame might cause some problems?

btw: claimed frame-weight is 750 gramm. without specification of size, so, as you can imagine, its related to smallest size xxs. and manufactorers use to weigh naked frames, without anything.
so, i think, 823 gramm for size "s"-Frame, with hanger and cable guides, is absolutely ok.;-)

Nice frame, decent weights. You obviously had a big budget for this build. You should get that black KMC X10SL DLC chain to really finish your bike(s). :)

I like the black KCNC DLC chain! I just ordered it along with some KCNC Ti shift cables to replace the Powercordz shift cables. Anyone out there get this combo to work?? Do I maybe need a different liner? Kind of a waste to dump the Powercordz since they aren't cheap.
