Wow. Awesome.

I've never seen an Extralight before. Often wanted one though as a Canadian pro I used to train with while at University had one.

It did look fabulous with the white tape, white saddle and LW's, didn't it?

Almost a shame you got rid of those wheels, but I'm sure the next set of carbon hoops will look even better

I know but the LW's don't ride THAT awsome - especially with our usual rides through flat polder land with lots of wind (you know I hardly ever used the front wheel because of the wind) - and I got sick of the constant struggle with changing punctured tubulars. Back to low-profile clinchers for me. A bit in doubt about going back to the black/red/white theme or doing it black 'n red this year. I guess it will be black SLR, black ribbon with red trimming, Hyperions and Vittoria Corsa CX.

The idea was to get a modern lightweight bike with even more traditional looks. Hence I kept the original Powerarms as they have a classic shape compared to Claviculas and the new Powerarms. Combined with the TA titanium axle they're not that much heavier. I also wanted a very clean look. Pics were made during a training ride so there's some dirt and dust. Still have to change the inner chainring (CT2 instead of TA), the shifter lever (BTP carbon instead of Campagnolo) and the saddle. Also thinking about switching to Speedplay pedals. Bike is shown here with training/cobbles wheels (Record/DT competition/Mavic Open Pro with Chorus cassette). It weights 7,3 kilo with these wheels so the final setup will be around 6,6.

I love the bike and classic look. But, I am surprised that all the Ti haters haven’t come out to say what a flexy piece of crap it is. The truth is that bike has more soul and ride quality than any piece of mass produced plastic junk and brute "stiffness" is way overrated.….Some bikes are just alive as I suspect this bike is, Well done.

Nice build!

Outer chainring isn't oriented correctly...
