Hi, cycling addicts
Since a sold my Addict in autumn
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.
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.
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..
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.
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.
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.
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)
