@dudemanppl - that would be cool! It would be awesome to Weight Weenie shop talk with you guys. I think RyanH will drop my ass though. He did take Phil Gaimon's KOM!

I am happy with the current weight which is a tad under 300 grams. After bonding, I am hoping for 290 grams or so. The original FSA SLK bar and stem weighed a hefty 378 grams. So, for an aero set up I think this is as light as I can get. For comparison, an Ax Lightness Zeus Stem and Ax Lightness 4100 bar is 213 grams but far too wide for my little wife. So my aero setup is right in the middle which is ok. I can save another 10 grams if I use an Ax Lightness Rigid stem but I don't want to bond it.

This is how the bike looks now. I am keeping the conical headset spacer at the moment but plan to remove it once fitting is finalized. With the -17 MCFK stem this thing will be low minus the spacer. When looking at this bike from the frontal position, the bars don't look quite as aero due to the shorter length of the tops/flats.

The entire bike will have a high gloss clear coat including all the components. My wife already has a matte finish Cannondale Evo HiMod so this bike needs to have a different look. I do like the current murdered look but I need to try something not so common open mold/Chinese looking. Some guy already told me "dude, that is not a real Cannondale bro" at the local coffee shop.

I think it'll look so much better after it has the gloss clear on it, it looks a bit rough as it is now. The gloss will be worth the extra grams

Gloss clear with some accents of some sort to highlight the textreme.

Mask out a logo so you have the negative of the current gloss-on-matte stuff.

Getting the final little bits and pieces before I send the frame off. I mentioned that I want to get my purple anodized freak on.

Here is a steal M6 bolt used to clamp the saddle.

Image


Replaced it with a purple anodized titanium bolt and saved some weight.

Image


Here are 2 titanium stock M6 bolts for the seat post.

Image


The replacement purple titanium M6x16 bolts weigh more. However, they are longer and need to be trimmed down.

Image


Some aluminum purple presta valve covers. Not necessary but why not? Only 1 gram.

Image


The bike with some purple accents.

3K Fibrelyte top cap to match the MCFK Stem. Will use a nylon bolt to save weight.

Flipped the Fibrelye cap over and removed approximately 1mm of material to save a little weight. Together with the nylon bolt the cheesy scale was hovering between 1 and 2 grams.

I sent my Cirrus Ultralite Ti pedals to Toronto Cycles to have them anodized purple. I am looking forward to getting them back. I think they will look cool with this build.

How did you remove the material off the top cap? I've got the same and was a bit disappointed with it's weight to be honest!

I finally got to meet Kevin @ Cryptic Cycles who will be putting the final touches on this frame. Starting off with the bar stem, he hooked me up with the ultra high modulus military grade UD carbon to bond the bar to the stem. Then, he used a matching 3K weave to make the bar stem look factory perfect. The last pic is before he puts it in the oven.

@dereksmalls - I used a dremel with a diamond bit. It is super easy to do. The FibreLyte top cap is a little thick and can be thinned out. I did the same thing on my Litespeed.
