Right now i just have my lightweight Stevens and no other bike. Wanted to have a race bike wich works more for every day, works for my training and even looks nice. And of course it should not weigh to much. And that at a low cost of around 2500€
So i bought an Litespeed Vortex frameset at ebay. Still did not get it so i have no pictures to show.
Than i bought all parts already. Will show everything in order they show up

First is a Syntace Stem i had laying around. The Screws are black Titanium

Image


The next parts are the wheels. Classy Zipp 202. I bought them yesterday, they where in a much nicer condition than expected.
The wheels weigh 1152g. And the tires around 320g piece, they are Continental Giro´s

Image


Next are the Bottlecages. Will use 2 of my ownbuild Fuchs cages

Stupid Brain is thinking about using the Clavicula SE i bought for my Stevens on the Litespeed instead :D
The Zipp looks and works fine on the Stevens, just that it is ca 35g heavier which is bad for the Stevens :p
And it would be so nice to have a Clavi on the Litespeed. And i do not have the money for a second one right now.
Will think about it...

Don't do it! The Stevens *NEEDS* it. How much does the spindle weigh on the zipp 300?

I decided to change the tires to Continental Competition instead. Had some new ones laying around, they are still puncture resistent and ca 130g less weight on the bike over the Giros
I think the bike will even look a bit better with all black tires.
As i had the tires of i finally could weigh everything.

Just changed the bearings in the bottom bracket. Now its smooth like new again.

Saw by the tracking that the frame is already in Sweden. Maybe i will get it tomorrow already, that would be so nice.
