Frame and fork - Isaac Proton FW (54cm)
Stem - Bontrager RXL
Handlebar - Bontrager RXL
Seat and seatpost - Custom made (135g without painting) :)
Brakes - KCNC C7
Shifters - Ultegra 6600...
Derailleurs (f) - Ultegra 6700
Derailleurs (r) - Dura Ace 7900
Cranks - Sram Red
Cassette - Ultegra 6700 11-25
Chain - KMC X10SL
Pedals - Speedplay
Wheelset - Reynolds 46, DT 240S, Sapim CX-Ray
Tyres - Schwalbe One and Vittoria Corsa Evo CX

Nice n Clean, just the Ultegra Shifters look huge but once you get your DuraA shifters it'll even be nicer :thumbup:

btw: did you weigh the frame?
regards

Very nice build and nice photos too.

I like how it's not flashy, it could be better with black cables. How do you like the KCNC brakes??

Thanks for your opinions. I will add pictures when I change something.

No, it's not Berk seatpost, but I really admire his job.
I did this combo myself with a little help from my university. My faculty is engaged in materials, so I can learn a lot of interesting and useful things.

Only frame in this size weight 895g.

In the future, I will apply the black cables.
KCNC brakes works good with Swissstop pads. With original they are really bad, even with aluminium rims.

Nice looks great. I love the looks of Red cranks with simple aftermarket rings and its a light setup.

Nice bike.
I can remmember, that few years ago, ISAAC was quite popular in Europe.
But these days, I can not see many ISAAC bikes around.
Enjoy it.

I've bought this frameset, becouse I want to make unique bicycle. Bike with my own parts will not be terribly expensive and at the same time lightweight and good quality. I use only the highest quality materials with certified to produce it.

yeah would love to see more pics on how you made the seatpost. Also, gold chain on all black frame never fails!

Reynolds w/ Swissstop Yellows suck (in fact they suck on pretty much everything). The cryo blues are the way to go.

What's with the partially wrapped drops?

IMHO the white cable housing looks good. Provides some contrast to the bike and matches the wheel hubs (at least the rear).

"popular" maybe is to much (years ago,i presented the predecessor of this frame in ww-forum, build wasnt to bad, with reynolds kom/tune wheelset, p2max, red.....didnt interest anybody :) , ok, its the internet, with its own rules, here, always difficult with so-called "different" bikes. :wink: ).

but, as you say, these days, i ask myself: how can this brand still exist? i dont know anybody owning an actual, past-going-bust, isaac.
(nerverhteless the isaac element 2014 is a really nice framest, please anybody buy one and start a build-threat! still available in different sizes:
http://bike-fun.nl/producten/fietsen/ra ... t-frameset :wink: )

quality of isaac-frame-design is reflected by the proton presented here: design exists since 2008, and still looks fresh, in my opinion.
