Btw if you don't think weightweenies is about style as well as weight then go look at the thread about Bo Gevers Time VX edge and see how his 'red themed' bike goes down. :lol:

Hi Herbert

Thanks for the feedback, well Litespeed is my first choice since more than a decade. From the early Catalyst, Obed, Unicoi up to last years Sewanee all frames are beautifully welded. All of them - old and new generation are pieces of art!

Rgrds,

Pius

PS. Greetings to Tiger Martin ;-)

Okay, most parts have arrived so now I'll have to build my new bike. Just waiting for the fork and the bottom bracket.

They frame is very old. Early 1990's. I stripped the paint coat and had it sand blasted. The result is very pleasing, looks like the matt finish of Moots frames. I then applied new white Merlin decals.

Specs list...

Frame: Merlin Extralight (approx. 1993), 58 cm, blasted (similar to Moots finish) with new decals
Fork: Easton EC90 SL full carbon, Ø 1"
Headset: Chris King Ahead 1" (black)
Stem: Syntace Force 99, 120 mm, 6°, Ø 26.0
Handlebar: Ritchey WCS, 420 mm; Ø 26.0 (shortened)
Shifters: Campagnolo Record Ergopower
Ribbon: BBB carbon pattern (black)
Cables: Campagnolo (black)
Front derailleur: Campagnolo Record w/34.8 mm clamp
Rear derailleur: Campagnolo Record 10-speed; short cage
Chain: Campagnolo C-10
Cassette: Campagnolo Record 12-25
Crankset: Storck Powerarms ; 172.5 ; ISIS w/TA Specialité 52/39 t. (black)
Bottom bracket: SKF BAS-450, JIS 107 mm, BSA
Brakes: Zero Gravity Ti (black)
Hubs: Lightweight w/Tune skewers
Spokes: Lightweight
Rims: Lightweight
Tires: Schwalbe Stelvio, 25 mm
Seatpost: Thomson Elite Masterpiece, 330 mm, Ø 27.2 mm (black)
Saddle: Selle Italia Flite (stripped)

Here is my Dean El Diente in it's current form. 17.0lbs as pictured with pedals, cages, and computer. Acceptable for a 62cm(c-t) I think.

Here is my take on Ti. It has a ti top tube and down tube and the rest is carbon. The frame weight is 1100g in the stock 56 cm size and the whole bike is just under 16lbs without trying! The nice thing about this model is that it still retains the bb stiffness (about 20% stiffer than the Madone) and gives the overall feel of a smooth ti bike.

And yes, you can paint Ti, if you do it correctly!

Enjoy!

Very interesting to see the actual joint wrapping filament. I think it blends nicely with the wavy form of the paint motif.

footwerx.....they are made by pro carbon. Certainly not ww at between 260 and 270 grams. I purchased them from a retailor on ebay. Outstanding service. They are unbelievably comfortable and the way that I wrap them I save an extra 30 grams on bar tape. I think I got them for $158.00 shipping included. His seller name is aspirevelotech and I believe his name is Mike. Hope this helps.
