Not a super weenie / blingy bike, but light enough and not a brand commonly seen around here, so I thought about showing. Photos aren't fab either, got the proportions all wrong (front end looks huge/too tall) from not being able to get back enough and zoom but oh well.

Weight: 6.15Kg showroom weight, 6.55 ready for road including Garmin (40 grams alloy mount!), pedals, cages, rear light. Way lighter than I deserve and not bad considering I didn't use anything exotic. I could shed 250g more by going for light tires, saddle and a SR crank but it would be much smarter to spend that money on a power meter.

-frame: Simplon Pavo 3 2017, 856 grams with hanger and clamp in size L (58cm top tube). The finish is matt and super thin, in strong light can notice the carbon weave showing through. Fork 326 grams uncut. Very tight gap between frame and fork. Pressfit holes well reamed, installation felt perfect.
-groupset: Campy 2015 mix, bought mostly on basis of good deals/discounts rather than best bang for the buck:
Chorus compact crank (690g) and derailleurs
Record brakes and chain
SR 12-25 cassette and ergos
-wheels: Bora One tubulars, Veloflex Arenberg tires (290g each)
-Ritchey Superlogic seatpost (155g with oversize clamp) and 110mm stem (130g)
-Fizik Aliante 00 saddle (165g)
-Fizik 00 chameleon 44cm bars (180g)
-Dura-ace pedals, Deda basic tape stitched with yellow kevlar thread
-Tune cages

Before I rode an 8kg aluminium endurance Canyon. Same L size but shorter top tube, I kept feeling cramped. Now I am well stretched and can descend with much much more confidence. The comfort difference is huge, mostly from the wheels (I had them on the old bike for a while too)
