Cheers KCookie for the feedback. I think I saw you mention in another thread about the issue you had with the Fibre Lytes. I picked up a tubular wheelset on Fleabay now (excited for their arrival), which will get me well under 5kg, so will probably put off the Fibre Lytes til I knacker out my Extralite rings.

How does your Tiso Altore Front Derailleur shift with the SRAM RED shifters? I couldn't get a Campagnolo Record QS derailleur to work with the RED. There was not enough pull to them. I am very intrigued by the Tiso.

Looks amazing, but I just can't get over that stem, no matter who it's made by and how light it is

I'm on holiday at the moment, so not much is happening (weight being added to rider). Derailleurs still need cabling up, headset adjusting, bars taping, then I should be good to go. The tubulars I've bought were un-used by the previous owner (although they are used), so I'm guessing the tubs should be re-glued as well? I can still ride the clinchers til then though.

@dereksmalls I get it, each to their own. It's quite a unique look, the "semi" I suppose! I like it though - think it exaggerates the long and low appearance.

Out of interest what grades of sandpaper did you use? I've stripped forks in the past and wondered if I have been a bit cautious. Great work there really impressive. These are the kinds of builds that show the spirit of weightweenieism.

I used 100 or even 80 to start things off through the clear coat and into the paint, then moved to 400 through to carbon, and finished with a few bits of 1200 grit. I'd recommend razoring too, which is what I was doing by the end. Not exactly sure what razors everyone else uses, but I found stanley knife blades worked fine. I found some slightly more expensive sharper and longer lasting ones, but still cheap - maybe £2.50 for a pack of 6/8. You'd need to buy a few packs to do the whole frame and forks (likewise with sandpaper you need a fair bit). A needle file also helped with some hard to reach areas.

Thanks for the compliment, I'm happy with how it's turned out. Just a bit of fine tuning of the gears to do, and for some reason my bearing cover is dragging, so I'm gonna have to disamntle my headset and not slam everything down so tight! Just that and some bar tape.

I haven't finished up the build quite yet, but the Tiso is up and running. Shifting seems to be ok - I can shift up and down without too much trouble. I had some issues setting it up though... I placed the FD about 2mm above the 52t big ring as per usual, but in the 2 biggest cogs of my 11-28, the chain was scraping the underside of the derailleur body. It could be that the derailleur is supposed to be used only on a 50t?! I un-clamped the cable and moved the FD up the minimum possible to clear the chain in the 52/28. Obviously you don't want the FD too high, as your shifting quality is going to go down the pan.

The cage seems narrower than the outgoing Red 22, so there's a bit of scraping when cross chaining which annoyed the perfectionist in me. Considering the non-ideal combo of Sram shifters, Tiso Altore (for Shimano) with carbon cages, and thin Extralite rings, I'm pretty happy I managed to get it working ok though. Performance in this area is 2nd to weight, but that was a conscious decision - and hey, not everyone has a 46g FD!

And a couple more of the mandatory scale shots. The Extralite lockring saves a couple of grams over the Sram one. I think the cassette is a great weight even though it's steel, and I would always recommend a Red 22 for that reason. I mash my gears a bit, so an aluminium cassette is out of the question.

Delivery!!! Ok this is going to be closer to 4.5kg than 5kg now. There's a Conti Competition on front and GP4000 on the rear. Not my first choice, but they came glued on and look in good condition, so will go with it for now. I need a small and subtle spoke magnet for these. I've got a Tune magnet glued on the clinchers, anyone tried the Carbonice one? I guess I'll use one of those 2 options.

Unbelievably I'm away again this weekend and haven't got access to a chain whip right now, so not going to get the tubs on for a short while. Now everything's set up properly, I've taken a few shots with the clinchers on. All finished apart from a roll of Deda tape to wrap the bars. I'll sand the Sram shifters at some point once I've ridden the hell out of it!

I'll probably do a few out and about glamour shots once the tubs are on and get a spreadsheet posted up.

Those AX rims are going to look so good on this! I'm really tempted to get another SuperSix and strip it myself now.

Are the two side of the stem touching each other? Normal on a ax stem?

Yes they are. It's always been the case with this one when cranked down. I only torque them to 3nm.
