Cool bike. I really like the look of the AX-Lightness fork on your frame. I bought an AX-6000 fork for a Litespeed '02 or '03 Ghisallo frame a while back, but the combination looked horrible.

The only thing I do not like about your bike is the Fizik saddle. Surely you should be able to find something a little bit better looking and lighter that you are also comfortable on?...

hello

thank you for your answer.

i took a Speedneedle of and trade it for a antares 00, for more confort. for the price i had other options like:

MCFK, PopParts, Tune KomVor+,... but i prefer a lite more padding.

best regards

Ps: really like your project of wood bike. very very interesting, what will be the weight????

I use a Fizik Arione (first Ti version and now CX carbon) saddle on my regular bike. I tried a Speedneedle in the past, but it did not work for me either. The shape simply does not seem right. However, I also did quite some miles on a Selle Italia C64 and it was great. I could easily use it for several hours and the weight is really low. Maybe something for you to consider?..

Not sure what the weight of the Renovo will be, but I am pretty sure it is not going to be a weightweenie bike :wink:

hello here are the new parts that i'm thinking for this year:

1 - EEcrank + PFBB30 (when it get out) - replacing a Hollowgram SL + ceramic PFBB30

2 - MCFK 42cm Handlebar or ENVE compact Handlebar. - replacing FSA K-force Nano compact

3 - Lightweight Standart 3 Black Edition 20/24 or ENVE 3.4 smart + Alchemy Hubs + DT swis aerolite spokes - replacing ENVE 1.45 + Carbon-ti + Pillar 1420 areo spokes.

(lightweight wheels are still, 10% cheaper than these custome ones - ENVE 3.4 smart + Alchemy Hubs + DT swis aerolite )

4 - last sending my bar and stem to Applemann or calfee for integration. (still don't know because it is a lot of money)

All my parts willl that will be replaced will be sold.

Best Regards
