Hello!

Here is some picks of my bike:

Front derailleur: Campagnolo Record 2005 (somewhat drilled)
Front derailleur screws and axises: BTP alloy and carbon
Front derailleur holder: Campagnolo Record 2006 (drilled to 9 gr)
Front derailleur holder screws: Extralite alloy 2006 Black

Crank arms: Campagnolo Record 2005 Carbon
BB: Phil Wood Titanium Magnium 2006
Crank arm bolts: Extralite ExtraBolt 2 2006 Blue
Chain rings: Campagnolo Record 53-39 2005 (drilled to 90 gr)
Chain ring screws: Campagnolos original ones, but will install modified Extralite ExtraBolt
1.3 2006 Blue
Rear derailleur: Campagnolo Record 2005 short arme (somewhat drilled)
Roller boys: Extralite ExtraBolt 15 2006
Roller boy screws: Extralite Extrabolt 12 2006 Blue
Rear brake: Campagnolo Record 2005 (drilled to <70 gr without brake shoes)
Rear brake pads: Corima Cork Red 2006
Front break: FRM CL2 Titanium 2006
Front brake shoes and pads: BTP carbon with Corima cork pads 2006

Wheels: Zipp 404 2006
Front tubular: Vittoria EVO Corsa 20mm 2006
Rear tubular: Veloflex Criterium 22mm 2006

Bike weighs 6150 gr at present! (I sometimes use Veloflex Servizio Corse 20 mm
back, which makes biuke weigh 6100 gr. Also, weighs about 6.8 with Corima disk
and three spoke.)

I have some work left with derailleur screws, and some slight futher drilling, which
will save 20 gr. Also, I will take away paint, replacing it with more pure carbon look
(which is what will look best with my other parts), saving another perhaps 130 gr.
So bike will eventually weigh 6 kg. (I am thinking about another frame, more or less
areo, but reasonably light anyway (almost everything will be significanly ligther than
my heavy Fondriest frame), but have not been able to make up my mind about what
to go for!)

Best regards, Patrik Albin, Sweden

Patrik, I remember seing those photo's before and while they are impressive (and a bit controversially extreme :)) I was wondering if you had any other photos of your bike? Perhaps in the 6.8kg TT setup as well?

Congratulations on the light bike though :)

Hello!

You are right! So here are some more pics! And with all three different wheel-pairs (Zipp 404, Corima tt, Campa Hyperon). Note: The far better quality first three pictures have
been taken by the chairman of my bicycle-club, while the ones below have been taken
by myself! (What does your bike look like?)

Best regards, Patrik Albin

Damn, I've got to say it, thats one hell of a bike Patrik

And as for "what does my bike look like?" well, its so un-WW that I'm not going to show it off until I've had to time to do some mods (sometime at the end of this year) or completly overhaul it :? (The weight of the bike is embarrasing on this forum, its more than quite a few MTB's here :)) But its an 03 TCR-1 (aluminium) with really heavy training hoops. I love it, but its a damn sight less impressive than yours

It's nice, that chainrings are looking weird.

That's a damn good job of drillium application! Looks a bit baroque-ish. Not quite my taste, but it sure stands out from the pack and that's certainly nice for a change.

I must say, personally I'd think twice before drilling this many holes in my chainrings, let alone my brakes, but I'm a somewhat heavier fella so that might be a different story for you.

Ride on! :)

I've noticed that light chain-rings weight about 90 gr, so I wanted to test if you could drill
yourself to that weight as well (mine are 90 gr), which seems to be the case, at least up
til now.

You certainly are right about "baroque-ish": older cyclist remembers their old cycles 25
years ago full with holes, as drilling was common at that time ...

The brakes actually works well - I have notoced no difference between Campa back
brake after and before drilling. I have the Corima cork pads, and found that they are
completeley nonsense (like braking with wet soaps) in the wet whith my Corima wheels
(!!!! can't they break their own wheels?). However, they are very good with other wheels,
both in dry and wet. The FRM front break, althoufg perfectly OK, is less good than the
Campa Record one, but I can still put on my Campa front break whenever I like. (I have
heard from another Corima wheel owner the same story about breaking with their wheels
in the wet. And regardless of brakepads!)

Best regards, Patrik Albin
