Hey Weight Weenie fam!
Been way too long, but I will try to post 10 of our nicest bikes for y'all in the next few weeks...

First up is a killer custom Baum Ristretto for a customer from B.C.
Weight ended up just shy of dead on 15 lbs fully built!

More pics on the site, but here is a side build shot and specs...

Image

Frame hand-built in Australia
Custom selected steel tubing
1+1/8″ headtube with BSA BB
ENVE 2.0 fork
Chris King Headset
“Rapha” black/pink paint scheme
Shimano Dura Ace Di2 9070
3T ARX II stem + Ergonova bar
Enve 27.2 carbon setback post
Selle Italia SLR Flow Ti saddle
Mavic Cosmic Carbone Ultimate tubular wheels

I can't say much about the ride, since it was a custom geometry for a smaller fellow, but she looked deadly in person.
Just perfect weld and paint quality, plus the Baum geometries are typically awesome.

Where in BC is this heading? Just curious whether I'm going to see it on the road here in Vancouver...

It is indeed around Vancouver, so keep an eye out ;)
I can't take much credit for the build, but it worked out well.

Custom painted stem would have finished her off nicely....
