Lmao, this will be the lightest thing to roll through here in a couple of years and unlike a few other "perfectly rideable" bikes, this one will actually be perfectly rideable.

But we can't call it über unless gum does something stupid like not getting a uv coat on the bike...


I love the Internet.

like i said it is an absolutly light bike and i never said something against this but to call it an über, you would not take 30g paint on the frame, a heavy fork and so on.

i do not mean to build a stupid bike which does not fit because of an "too short " frame or so.


Since when is a THM Scapula SP a heavy fork? :noidea: it's the ultimate WW fork, as it's super stiff, safe and very light.

Absolutely!!!

This build is amazing to me! My bike weighs 11.8 pounds....oh yeah, it has no drivetrain on it yet!
I'm hoping my finished build will be under 15 pounds, and the OP's will be EIGHT!!!! Uber is an understatement in my opinion. :shock:

"uber" or "über" is just a preposition, it does mean exactly zilch on its own.

What what were we discussing again? Oh yeah the bike. Can't wait Gum, that's going to be totally uber!

You could always tune the lightweights ;)

Obermayer with carbon axels,ceramic bearings and a little job on the body will take them down a lot and they are still stiffer than the enve.


About the über ww build. It is not an über. It is just an expensive regular ww bike. A nice one for sure but there is almost no part which is really tuned to the max.


Which makes it all the more impressive, given its weight :wink:

Find me a uber light bike that doesn't have Schmolke parts, THM, AX-Lightness, Tune or Lightweights (although not all that Lightweight). I could tune the sh*t out of every component and drop a few grams or I could keep it as is and have an "everyday" 8lb bike. No disrespect to those other builds, but I won't be using downtube shifters, single speed cassettes, a handlebar that is cut to eliminate the drops without bar tape or *gasp* Tufos (light but crap so I won't do it). The wheels are rather heavy for a bike like this...I could easily go lower. Everything on this build will be standard stuff. I also will be using a frame that is designed for me and not strictly designed to cut weight. I could have gone with a very short head tube or smaller frame and saved ALOT of weight. A funky angled stem to compensate is much lighter than additional frame dimensions. My seatpost is straight with no setback. I could have used a shorter toptube with a setback as well. So if you stop for a minute, relax and look at the big picture you'll accept that this is an uber-weenie build, but if you don't...what do I care :mrgreen:

Well said. I can't understand the negativity on this site. This is going to be one mutha funking bike.

No offense taken. I have pics of each component on a scale, but I wasnt going to show them because most of you know what these parts look like. Maybe I'll show some of the tuned RED stuff.

So is Crumpton now the weight weenie money-is-no-object frame of choice, at least in the US?

Very nice project!

Not that I want him too and I probably shouldn't be saying this :mrgreen: but Nick could be charging a lot more for this frame than he is, considering what the Cervelo California, cannondale and those other weenie frames are going for. This is a handmade masterpiece by the best in the business. I'm not going to go into prices, but it's not as much as you think or could be. I'm just very grateful he agreed to build me one.

On a side note, I got the Ruegamer back tonight, so I'll take some pics tomorrow after work. Stay tuned :wink:
