I have started my build
It's not going to be as high end as most of you guys are riding..
Scott Addict R2 2008 frame and fork
Hed Stinger 5 carbon tubs OR 38mm china carbon tubs
DA 7800 fd, Sram red crank, Red RD, Red STI levers
Ritchey WCS Carbon anatomic handlebars
This is enough "lightweight" and top spec stuff for me to get comments im sure.. So i need to get in gear and start training properly..
The bike will easily go under 7kg. (very rough calc = 6.4kg) around 6kg if i buy new wheels, brakes and chainrings.
Don't be so harsh!
The fastest local riders like to chat about gear and will certainly notice my bike. They allready commented my old CAAD7 because of my china 38mm tubs..
The slow riders do really not care unless its the newest stuff they like and want (which is not going to my bike, 2008 frame)
The noobs are riding alone, hiding in some strange road.
We have two former pros in my city, they do really not care about equipment. One does not talk about bikes at all, only tactics..The other loves classic design and old bikes. Not into talking about new stuff at all. ( Record and Orbea is the best, end of the discussion) I work with the latter.
