I know, it's a little early to open a thread, because I don't even have received the frameset yet, but I thought it's kinda nice to show you how the bike "grows" and give you regular updates.
Short introduction: I just finished school, and only earn VERY little money with road-racing. So i have to be careful with how much money i spend on different parts - that's pretty hard. I got a small fix-income but pretty nice rewards for good results (up to 2500€/race), so it may take 8 months to finish this project, but it's also possible that I have enough $$$ in 4 months.
This project changed a lot in the last 2 months. Actually I wanted to install my DuraAce 10sp.(at that time i estimated the weight to be around the 6.8kg mark, so nothing really special), until I was forced to put it on our teambike nxt year which is only equipped with Ultegra 10sp. (thank you corratec
I decided to go for a Campy Record setup, although it would be very expensive. I'd have to get a crankset, front+rear derailleur, chain, shift/brake-units, cassette, a campy-compatible wheelset and cables. This time I thought the weight could be around 6.6kg wit some smaller changes.
I also wanted to get a new seatpost, handlebar and saddle.
I decided to spend some money on a part that would really lose me some weight. I bought a pair of ZeroGravitys .....
Then things started going well: I got a great deal on a EC90 bar+post, AX endurance saddle, Tune Skyline cages and Reynolds Stratus(Campy-freehub:)). If i remember correctly I only paid about 750Euros for all that stuff! I was quite happy, and estimated the bike to be around 6.4kg.
After that "financial effort" (that was a hell lot of money for me
) I had to think about think about how to get rest without waiting until the end of 2009
The frameset was clear: a Canyon F10. I already had one, but there were some problems with the lacquer, so i sent it to Canyon 14days ago, still waiting for them to tell me what's going on. I suppose they will sent me a new 2006 model, which will arrive in february
Then, without any suspicion, Lee offered me his "old" Clavicula for free (Thank you again for that!) which helped me alot. I think I will receive it at the end of next week. I estimated the weight to be 6.2kgs
Now the only things that are still missing is campy record front+rear derailleur, cassette (ti-version), chain, shift/brake-units. All that stuff will cost me about 720euros when I take the Ti-version of the record cassette. I also want to get smaller parts like the Schmolke Ahead-Cap and a tune-lockring and want to get under 6Kg!!
I hope to be able to buy that in march next year.
