Hello everyone! I built this bike as my daily commuter and weekend crit bike. I built it not to be light (Okay maybe a little) but to be durable to ride in the San Francisco Bay Area. Most of the components are Bontrager and the group is SRAM Force with an Apex crank. The group were parts I had laying around from past builds and made good use of them. As for total weight, I haven't gotten to it yet since I don't have a bike scale. However I have some weights of the components I've used for the build.

I was originally going to put a Whisky fork from an old build but the steering tube came up a bit short. The frame would of looked nicer with the Whisky fork since it has minimal decals and a beefier look. I had an uncut Easton fork laying around, so I used this one instead...

Thanks to Fairwheel bikes for some of the lightweight trinkets!

Here's my other bike...
