Ok, Finally i have had time to sit down and put a few pictures up.
Unfortunately over the last few weeks, money for the build has had to go elsewhere. So i am concentrating on getting a bike built, as light as possible at the moment. But without the 100% lightweight and blingy bits like first planed.
These will hopefully come at a later date..
Since my last post, i have had 2 very exciting parcels from Mattias containing some pretty amazing components -
Firstly, a custom 10speed full (Almost) carbon cassette. This follows the standard shimano 11-23 pattern. Sprockets 3-10 are made from carbon and separated by plastic spacers, and the first 2 sprockets are made from Aluminium, due to the complexity and size of the part.
The weight of the cassette is an amazing 61 grams. Thats without lock-ring, but a KCNC item should only add 5grams ish.
The next parcel contained some chainrings, they are anodised aluminium. And 110BCD teeth size 39/53.
These again are a pretty amazing 47grams for both rings. The only downside is the 53tooth ring is a slightly flexy, but we will have to see how it copes under pressure -
Ok, next up was putting the chainset together. I have got Extralite chainring bolts. That weigh in at 10grams for all 5. And the stock lightning cranks and spider.
As shown below the final weight for the full chainset is 413grams + the 90grams for the BB cups. It makes 503grams. Not to bad i didn't think!!
Now, the frame. It is a 54cm Scott Addict SL frame, and fork. The frame weighs in at 834grams for the Frame + Mech Hanger + BB Guide. And the fork weighs in at 321grams thats un-cut.
Ok, so far with the following items on the frame, we have a weight of 5.4pounds. I think a sensible guess would be around 11 pounds for the final build. But we will see what happens!!
Whats built so far -
The wheelbuild is coming soon, promise!!!
