I like the Gan in some ways better than the F8/F10. Lines look a little cleaner. I was actually very surprised by the weight for this "entry" level frame, thanks for putting it on the scale.

Lovely build. The WW touches on the seat clamp, fork, and stripping the heavy white paint off the bars are great to see. Spirit of WW is still alive :)

It suprised me also.. that is why i said that i have to do best i can.. on my budget ofcourse..

so now i got the Berk Hlod saddle.. it is in 3k pattern, so it doesn't match with the rest of the bike.. i am thinking to paint it with mat black.. the saddle is actually from a friend of mine.. who cracked it, cuz his bike hit the deck when he was sitting on the top tube, doing selfie :lol: :lol: so the saddle got repaired and i got it real cheap.. currently 1/2 of the firm, where i am working is hooked and we are on Berk now.. :lol: :lol:

i haven't put it on scale yet, but i will do it in a couple of days..

here are the pictures with the saddle, i didn't set up the seat postpost eight, since i just mount the saddle.. i have to raise it a bit.

the bike has to be around 6,7 now.. will se what the scale shows :wink:

Hi,

the seatpost clamp is from an old 3T seatpost, but you can by similiar from KCNC.

I tried the tan line tires on but it was a big NO NO.

Few days back i got the Camp. Bora Ultra 35 tub. but then i put vittoria corsa cx tubulars on, which are heavy.. around 280g + glue. so now the bike is around 6,6kg. im a little bit dissapointed. will see what the time brings. I got the wheels cheap... would prefer a 50mm

somebody asked me about comparison between Fizik Aliante and Berk Hlod. The feeling is pretty similar. I feel the edges on Berk sometimes. If you want to avoid that, the choose the padded version. Overall i find Berk more comfortable, even without padding. The bike even felt on the floor few times, and the saddle is ok.. few minor scratches, but i little bit of a grit paper and some polishing will do the job.. i highly recommend Hlod over Aliante.

and a picture from my workplace, to where i commute :) without bibs :)Image
