That is a kicka$$ project...my hat off to you sir.

With that said...I'd be afraid to look too hard in the direction of that bike for fear it would collapse under the weight of my own gaze.

I'd like to see a youtube video of you really cranking that thing up a hill...OUT of the seat!

I triple-dog-dare you!!!

I always love these comments. Oh that would break under my stare. Do you think the new Cannondale that comes stock at 10.5 lbs would break under your gaze as well?

Ok... I haven't got time to do a proper write up tonight. It will come in the next few days.
But here's a few pictures to keep you interested.

Big thank you to Marco at THM for sorting these bits out.
And if anybody is interested in some Camillo Zero G Ti brakes, give me a PM..

Cheers
Josh..

Yeah, it's starting to look like you'll make under 10Lbs. :) Keep up the good work! :beerchug: Can't wait to see the final result! Are you gonna do any refinishing on the frame?

Btw, you might wanna check both your forks. The Scott Addict fork has a 380mm stack height (I got one too) and that's unusually long. Putting a shorter fork in, like the THM, and it will alter steering properties, just that I'm unsure to what extent. Oh well, you'll find out soon enough...

Good lord those are beautiful. My palms get sweaty just thinking about cutting that fork.

BTW jhpbk, thanks to this thread, I went with Dash hubs for my build. I must say thanks!

Explain the fork brake thing to me. Are the brakes built into the fork? Or do THM brakes fit into the fork somehow? Can I see it built up :D

Wonder why THM stopped with just forks and cranks? They need to get into posts, saddles and wheels :thumbup:

It takes time to expand, especially when a company already has trouble keeping up with demand for the products that they already offer. Just look at Ax-Lightness. Years ago it was hard to get a seatpost or saddle (here in the US) and now they have handlebars, rims, stems, cranks, and even a frameset/fork.
