HI all! Love the ww website/forum and have been reading / following it for ages. Never really felt i had anything worthwhile to contribute till now (if there's nothing worth saying - don't say anything!).

Noticed that most light bikes are made with small/standard sized frames. all good and well if you're not 190cm / 6"4'.

So, for the last year or so I've been working on (saving every penny) to build a sub 6kg 60cm bike (whilst still keeping reliability etc).

Last week that mission was acomplished.

60cm Orbea Orca with Orbea SL fork, Lightweight obermayer wheels, zg, m2racer, etc etc (will post full listing soon when i have a chance) and is under 6kg - even with bottle cages and pedals plus all fittings and bar tape.

Will post pics and parts listing soon.

I feel I have arrived as a ww !

I'm almost as tall and probably quite a bit heavier than you, so I love to see posts/pics with lightweight, big frames. Welcome.
