Here's my cuneo, currently at about 7.9kg (with cassette). It's sort of a secondary/ weight weenie race bike, so on a bit of a budget.
The target is sub 7kg, but I have no money atm. Looking for a cheap layback seatpost, any suggestions?
more to come...

Sorry for the shite photo

Assuming the chain is threaded correctly through the rear mech, the chain is a little too long. Or is the cassette not fitted in that pic?

I don't see a cassette.

I do that sometimes too when I want to stand up a bike and don't have a stand. :lol: :thumbup:

Ah yes, there's no cassette in that Picture, but not for weight reasons :wink:

Well done all round - that's good value for money. I like the look of the FSA classic bend - seems a fair bit deeper drop than the deda shallows. Might have to try them myself!

Yep, bike looks very, very classy with those wheels and components.

Just got my Cuneo frame back from shot blasting, not quite sure how to finish
A) just glass paper
B) steel wool
C) polish
D) ???
I would put a clear coat over any of these as I want a bare aluminium finish.
Of course the aim is 7.6kg going on 6.8kg. Open to suggestion/snooty comments :wink:

Is it bad to think that I like the way it looks right now?

Any idea of weight before and after. This thread is timely as I was thinking about doing he same to my cyfac but leaving a panel of paint on the downtube.

53x12: I think your right, I might just clear coat straight away it looks pretty good already
I think I only saved around 50 grams but I would predict a cyfac's paint is a bit heavier

Mask off a design, polish only that part, then clear coat.
