I have been looking at all these amazing Projects built by the people on the forum especially Ryan, Godzuki and Fuchs and I have started to get an itch to build something as well.

So I have this damaged frame I got off ebay for 60 pounds which I fixed in the area shown in the pic.
I was thinking about respraying and building up as a light fixed gear commuter, under 5 kg or as a road bike.

Here it is

I'm planning to remove the paint, and turn it into a stealth fixed gear. Potentially when I get my hands on a SRAM eTAP group off ebay I'll convert to a road bike. The reason I'm not tempted to build it as a roadie is that I live in London and I don't ride out enough.

I am thinking of using some of the tools I have at my disposal to really shave some weight of this frame and sanding through the carbon layers. especially in the areas that see least stress.

the weight of the frame set with BB, Exogram cranks, KCNC stem DEDA handlebars and seat collar is 2394

I am going to use these tires allegedly 160g per wheel.
