Hi, cycling addicts

Since a sold my Addict in autumn
Image
I decided to go for one of the Gan series. First i wanted to buy a Gan RS frameset, but I couldn't get the color that i wanted in my size.. So then i just went a little bit cheaper. I ordered entry Gan model, with Shimano 105 and R7 LG..

When waiting on a bike, i bought a used Chorus 2015 with Record brake calipers and without a crank. I later bought a old Record crank.
Image
I already had a Ritchey C260 matrix stem from previous bike.. i stripped logos of and paint it with matt clear. I did the same with 3T Ergonova handlebar.
Image
Image
Image
Image
When i got the bike i quickly stripped down the parts and sold them.. The frame weight was a bit of suprise... was expecting it a little bit heavier. The fork is a different story.. pretty heavy..
Image
Image
I already knew that upper "clamp" on a seatpost is on a heavy side, so I replace it with two separate clamps from 3T seatpost i had. i saved 33g with that.
Image
Image
First build up, was with old Eurus wheelset, then a got a new Shamal C17.. now i changed that to a old Shamal Mille, which look great to me, they are lighter and braking is superb. On them i got Conti Force/Attack combo (the old version 22/24) and Vittoria Latex innertubes.
Image
Image

Image

This is a picture when i build it together.. few things chaned since now..

Wanted to replaced axles in my old Keo Carbon pedals, but i ordered the wrong ones.. that frustrated me, and i went for a Blade Titanium.

The bottle cages are from Elite.. Leggero model, i think they match with the bike pretty well.

The last update was a fork from F8, which i got from a friend who broke a frame in a crash few years back. The saving is 120g when it is cut.

Image

Now i am waiting for a Berk Hlod saddle, which will replace Aliante..

And i think i will be done then.. only a new hoods for the levers and a new handlebar tape. It will be the same Most Ultragrip which i find very good. Nice looking, superb grip and pretty light, 48g for the 2 whole roles.

If you have any questions, pls don't hesitate.. or what could make bike better.Bora's are on my bucket list, but i will probably sold the bike before this happens. Will post a picture when i will cut the fork, and the saddle comes in.

I will post pictures how it looks like soon, still have to cut the fork :) The bike with the current setup is 6,85kg.. Berk saddle should lover the weight by 100g+(Aliante is 185g)

Setup:
Pinarello Gan Frame with for from Dogma F8
Campagnolo Chorus 2015 groupset (record brake calipers and an old Record Crankset) 50/34, 11-27
3T Ergonova handlebar
Ritchey c-260 matrix stem
Campagnolo Shamall Mille wheelset with Vittoria Latex innertubes and Conti Attack/Force tires
Fizik Aliante R1 saddle
Most Supergrip tape
KCNC Ti QR
Look Blade Ti pedals
Elite Leggero bottlecages

You've included the links to the imgur gallery shot vs. the actual image link.

E.g. http://imgur.com/4hsRlcS points to the imgur gallery of the full bike shot, but you need the image link itself: http://i.imgur.com/4hsRlcS.jpg

Code:
[img]http://i.imgur.com/4hsRlcS.jpg[/img]


Note that there's a dropdown where you can get the link for the actual image in several different formats.

I find it really good. Great responsivnes and handling. I expected less. It was a little shocker to me.

Didn't plan to tune it like that, but the weight with first build was pretty good and then i decided to have a go.

so here are pictures of the bike in it is current condition

Image
the bottlecages are pretty light.. around 15g per piece, and i think they look sexy.. but i have troubles with big bootles (750ml) coming out. i really like the match of USB bearings in the hubs and in the crank.

Image
blade titanium pedals, pinarello edition


Image
better look how i solve the heavy seatclamp "issue"

Image
and the bike itself.. pretty happy with it, considering that it is with aluminium wheels, braking is superb though..

Nicely done. What size is the frame and do you have a final weight of the complete build?

It is 54. Like in the picture, the scale shifts from 6,85 to 6,80.. it is more on a 6,80 side, so i assume that is somewhere around 6820?? Have to weight it with better scale.. So with Berk saddle it should be around 6,7kg. quite good i think, since there is nothing really special going on.. and i am very happy with how good this drives.. the sensations that gives me are very nice
