Hi all,

Currently building an AX Lightness VIal Ultra which I would like to share with you. Been researching about the frame but unfortunately there is no review at all about the Ultra. So I took the plunge. DEtails below:

NOTE: Weight may not be accurate because some items I weighed with its cover.

Brakes - EEcycleworks 163g
Chainring - Fiberlite Aerolight 2 118g
Cables - 256g + 155g
Chain - KMC 239g
Front derailleur - Sram Red 74g
Rear derailleur - Sram Red 163g
Shifters - Sram Red 167g each
Handlebar - Fizik Cyrano 00 Snake 185g
Seatpost - Dash 128g
Saddle - Dash TT 9 114g
Crankset - FSA K-Force Light 465g
Power meter - Power2Max 171g
Cassette - 11-40 Shimano M8000 415g
Frame - AX Lightness Vial Evo Ultra 640g
Fork - THM Carbone CT-X 300g
Stem - MCFK -17deg 70mm 73g
Bottlecage - Chinese made unbranded 8g each
Wheel - Lightweight Meilenstein Clincher 520g front, 620g rear (no skewers)
Skewers - Lightweight 20g each
Tyre - Maxxis Refuse 700x23 316g each

Pictures coming.

Full bike weight is yet to be determined as bike is currently with LBS to be built.

Can you share your Chinese bottle cage source? It matches the Tune Wasserträger weight!

Hey Steve,

this is going to be something special!
But i must ask you,,..... What made you go for Maxxis Refuse?
This tire is not known for ride feel!

How come you didn't get Veloflex, Challenge or such?

I know....this will be my only bike and I'm commuting daily to work as well as weekend long hill rides.

will use the bike for an upcoming Peaks Challenge Gold Coast in August. Then I'll use lighter race tires.

Thanks for the link on the bottle mate! Have you tried putting and removing a bottle from it to test for security?

Lots of areas to cut down weight for this build btw, a sram red crank, lighter skewers and cassette etc.

Bike should be finished by today COB or tomorrow first thing. So Friday at the very least will be my first time commuting on it. Then Saturday is a long hill ride. I'll write the review straight away.

Re: weight, yeah I'll go slow on it. I'm sure changing the tires and the little bits and pieces will save me another 300-500gr but that would be more money spent =O

I'll update with more pictures on the final weight once it's ready.

What I'm a bit surprised though is the frame weight, AX says it should be around 600gr for Small. But in my case is 640gr. Maybe the paint?

I was surprised with the weight of the frame as well -- was expecting low 600s for a small. Did that include BB or headset bearings?

The bearings were there but not BB nor the seatpost clamp.

That explains the additional weight -- normally, the frame weight would exclude any bearings.
