Yes that is what i was looking for. That is beautiful. I assume you received your frame or is that a ax lightness photo? How about more photos


I agree it looks really great, but not my frame unfortunately, "just" an AX Lightness photo I received upon my enquiry about the dimension of the BB area. However I do have tentative information that my frame will be ready in maybe 3 weeks time, so getting closer. Since they just shipped out some frames I expect some real weights, reviews and builds showing up here at WW soon!

I sent Ax Lightness two emails recently but no reply. Starbike says they have not received any framesets as of yet. I think I will hold off ordering one of these framesets until they start shipping and I start seing some reviews here on WW.


Finally, the waiting has an end ;-)

Right now we got the first framesets by Mr. Schnura himself. Exciting work..

In case that someone still thinks about ordering: 2-3 weeks are claimed as delivery period for new orders..

Sure, the complete frameset (frame, uncutted fork, seat clamp and headset) = 1110 grams; Only the frame + seatclamp + headset = 796 grams

("D" with THM fork; Size L)

so is the claimed 700g in the ballpark for a L.. Don't know how much a headset+clamp would weigh.. but according to their spec the frame could be as high as 735g with the +/- 5%

According to marcob's post on page 10, this weight seems to include bottom bracket bearings as well.

GREAT frame... can't avoid thinking that it remembers some of the Cervélo geometry...

I also have a concern whether there will be a noise issue with those permanent carbon bearing cups

There should be no issue with the BB shell as long as AX manufacture the frame within tolerance. That may be easier said than done!

Can someone tell me why the fork seems heavy? THM claim 295g with 300mm of steerer. Is the steerer quite a bit longer and/or is the expander plug really heavy?

The fork in the picture where he mentioned the fork weight is not a "D" frameset, so it has the 3T fork - you can tell because it is not painted on the inside of the fork.

i like the raw look on this frameset. i wonder if the color at the bottom of the frame could be changed for a fee?
