Not a weight weenie by any means, but a pretty bike nonetheless for commuting and touring. First time I have fully built a bike (apart from the wheels) and it wasn't all that hard. Pretty chuffed at the outcome.

Lynskey Sportive Disc
Shimano R785 hydraulic brakes/Di2
SONdelux front wheel dynamo
H Plus SON wheels
Fyxation Session 700 tyres
Brooks B17 saddle

Weight: hmm, somewhere in the order of 12kg!

That seems to be a very functionsl build, the handlebars look a bit funny though.
Do you have some more/ bigger pictures?

Sure, this might give a better idea. These are the Velo Orange Grand Cru Chris' Rando bar, so it has very long drops, is flared out quite significantly at the sides and sweeps up into the flats.

I've found so far after a couple of weeks that I have quite a few positions that I didn't use before on my CF bike compact bar. I am seriously thinking about putting a Di2 shifter switch on the flats as it is a nice place to sit going up hills.

Cheers
TC
