A Litespeed Classic! Man, I've wanted one of these for so long but finding one in my size has been a challenge. This one is immaculate too. I can barely contain myself.

Frame weight with headset, cable guide, barrel adjusters, built in seatpost hw, fd and rd hangers:

Shit this fork is a lot lighter than I expected (includes CK base plate and expander contraption) so in other words, this is Enve 1.0 light:

It's size small/51. Head tube is tiny at 9cm.

So, headset is an old school CK unmarked. I'd prefer a black headset so that's on order. If I like how this frame handles, I'll probably order a Columbus minimal fork. The current one doesn't look terrible though I guess. I'm waffling about on the seatpost and stem, I think Thomson would look best.

Oh, and this is how @dudemanppl ships stuff:

That would have been just lovely if those ketchup packets split open. Geez.

Ryan, I just noticed that you have started 4 different build threads during the last month :O!!! I don't know how you do it, but keep them on - I really enjoy all of them!

The T3 is modern Ti, oversized everything with stiffness in mind to compete with today's expectations in a carbon world. The Classic should be more similar to a 1" steel frame. This is what titanium built its reputation on, both good and bad. This frame is circa 2000 and the tubing looks a little thicker than a traditional steel frame so hopefully it won't be too flexy while being that true comfort frame. I got this fairly cheap and a lot of what is going onto this frame is what I had lying around so in a sense, it'll be a nice "beater" bike.

A classic indeed.
Am a bit surprised at the weight given the smallish size and lack of paint - did they use un-butted tubing?

I forgot to clarify that the weight includes CK headset, cable adjusters, seatpost hardware (integrated), cable guide, built in fd hanger and rd hanger.

That fork is wicked light. If you end up ditching it and the headset, I'd be happy to buy them off you for my caad4.
