So I am looking for a sub-800 gram frame for a project and can get for relatively cheap money a Ridley Helium, BH ultimate, or NeilPryde Bura SL.

Comments as to the best one assuming that any of them will fit me and the gearing solution I have in mind?

Any other thoughts in $2500 or less?

Also who besides Crumpton and Trek Emonda and Nerve Bikes are doing sub-700 gram frames?

Thanks,
Michael Wilson

I like the looks of the Ridley Helium SL (I'm assuming you are looking at the SL), but I'm really fond of my first gen Addicts, and I think my next build might be the 2nd gen Addict SL. Unfortunately, they go for a little more $2500.

I highly recommend the Bura SL. I rode one this past season and it is the best frame I have ridden. Stiff and comfortable and my Large frame weighs 708g stripped! Easy to build a sub 12lb daily ride.

Paul's Cycles have Supersix EVO hm frames at 1300 and 1500 GBP. Not sure if that'll hit your target after shipping though.

I had a Burs SL in size medium which weighted 780 grams. I think the weight on these framesets varies quit a bit.

What was your opinion of the Bura SL? Why did you get rid of it?

I have a BMC SLR01. I initially wanted a Super Six Evo or Neilpryde Bura SL.

I'm curious about the Bura SL as I'm looking for a 12lb weight weenie build. My BMC comes in around high 13's.

Getting a Bura SL down to 11lb with Enve 1.25/Extralite wheels would be nice in the LA mountains.

Hi

I have about 1000 plus miles on a Bura SL it's stiff like a S Works and handles as well as a R3SL.
The S Works is gone but can not bear to let the R3SL leave the stable.
I hange around 140/150 lbs so the ability to run 25 mm plus tires is great.
I got it just below 13 lbs ready to ride standard build with RZR wheelset and 13 lbs plus with Madfibers.
If you look around you can get a great deal on a used one.
