Hey there.

Nate from Brooklyn. Lurked for a while, mainly looking at (and drooling over) a lot of the builds here.

Here's my daily. Not exactly WW, but definitely lighter than it was back in its heyday, thanks to 6800 and other modern parts.

20lb / 9kg - ish. Maybe a little less. Who knows?

EDIT: Updated with FLO 30 wheels. These are around the same weight as the previous wheels, but the aero shape does give them a bit of an edge.

My word, it's surreal how good 6800 looks on that.

Bravo.

That does look very very good.
The grey parts go so well with the colour of the frame.
yes, but how much does it weigh?

Were you and this bike in RBR a few years ago?? It had DA 7800 and mavics then. I absolutely love watching riders upgrade their old frames with new components and keep on trucking, it's so cool :)

Before the current setup, it was rolling on 8-speed Record and Mavic Open 4s, so I'm guessing it must've been someone else.

I know there's a handful of these out there in the wild. :mrgreen:

Thanks again, everyone.

How's the new setup compare to the old? How's the ride?

Integral has historically been intentionally beefed up to increase DuraAce sales but it's better now due competition from Force and Rival. I think it's still on the heavy side, though. Other than my anti Ultegra bias Iove the bike!
