Hello, I have been reading this forum for a little while and just wanted to introduce myself as well as thank you guys for the wealth of information here. I'm american but live in taiwan and get to ride on very diverse terrain, from super mountains to flat coastline. The bike climbs really well, but I feel alot more comfortable descending 15-20% switchbacks, tracks extremely well. Hope you like it.

The weight came to 5925g with the Garmin sensors. I do have to admit to a very rookie WW move and that is loosing track of my weights per item, sorry. I got lost with the cables and then I put BTP clamps and hoods on.
Frame - 1140 cut
Fork - 385 cut
Handlebar - zipp contour sl(tuned) - 186 cut
stem - extralite road oc 100mm - 83g
headset - 78g
expander/topcap - Tune - 14g
ISP topper - Tune cappy - 74g
seat - fizik 00 - 138
shifters - 09 sram force (tuned) - lost
crank - 09 sram force
fd/rd - 10 sram force
BB - omniracer
brake cables - ilink
brakes - kcnc cb1
shift cables - mini ilink
38mm tubulars - 1201
tires - tufo s3 lite 215 - 430
cassette - Recon 11-27 - 106
skewers - kcnc
grip tape - easton
computer garmin 500 speed/cadence/heartrate
KMC 10spxl

Sorry again for getting lost. Any thoughts on getting this in the 12lbs range?

Absolutely beautiful bike! I have no idea whether the shapes (ridges and contours) of the frame improve the ride (stiffnes of smoothness) but I love the way the frame looks, especially in all black with no decals. That is one nice ride.

Nice! What brand frame? How is the Extralite/Zipp combination working for you? (I have the same set-up and am quite satisfied but always interested in other opinions)

I decided to go with this frame, 1. No labels, blank slate make it totally mine. (Thinking - When you build a name brand bike up from scratch, no matter how you build it up lite heavy cheap expensive, it is still brand x) 2. I wanted to try an ISP frame and build it up as light as I could afford. 3. I like the fact people have said it looks like trek or it looks like velocite but it's not. It is a sample frame that I have taken my time on assembling it with parts from America, Taiwan, England, Germany, Italy and yes China. I had a lot of fun!!
There were 2 thing that my builder and I had to deal with.
1. Area around bottom bracket was ground a little to much.
Solution: Black permanent marker. My builder who was been to many carbon frame factory in China as well as here in Taiwan says "No big deal, you would be surprised how many black markers get used."
2. The generic cable guide on the bottom didn't sit flush with BB.
Solution: Take off shorten slightly and bend to sit flush.

He was very impressed with the frame as am I.
Thank ya'll for your kind comments.
Any Ideas how to loose some more weight? I figure:
lighter crank and rings, Black(Red) RD, Dura Ace FD
these are a little ways off though, any thing smaller?

Oh, the extralite - zipp combo works really good for me too. I did go with the contour for the flat tops though not the ultralite round bar.

The frame is a dengfu or hongfu 028 isp.
I was actually thinking of ordering one as well... but I've got to prioritise (MTB first :) )

Great stealth build. You like the ride?
Are you gonna add your own branding/ paint scheme eventually?

I've seen many builds with this frame but this is the lightest for sure!
