So after a few years of no bike riding and some competitive olympic weightlifting, my 6'4 frame ballooned up to a solid 127kg. Picked up mountain bike a couple years ago and have been enjoying that, but late last season, I found a sweet deal on a 61cm Eddy Merckx EMX-3 (Ultra groupset, Ritchey Classic bar, Deda Zero stem) without wheels/cranks/pedals. Picked up some Shimano 105 cranks and r501 wheels to get it rolling and threw on some m530 spd pedals I had lying around, all with the intentions of upgrading over winter.
Since then I picked up some generic, 88mm carbon tubular wheels (Vittoria Corsa tires) and replaced the SSM Aspide saddle with a Ergon SR3 (large) to better fit by backside. I was blown away at how much lighter and smoother they are than the Shimano's. Next upgrades will be pedals (likely Ultegra), bar (something carbon) and probably crankset. Playing around with different bar tape (hence the two colours. I don't intend to keep it that way). Also working on flexibility to get that stem flipped.
Current weight is 8.6kg (roughly. I don't have a decent scale)
Not sure what my final goal is at this point, but will need to sacrifice some weight in order to accommodate my size. I also know this frame is definitely not a featherweight, but I'm definitely open suggestions on areas I could work on. (Currently working on the body weight situation as well)
