No, please keep the external cable routing. Internal is a useless PITA.
Threaded BB option would be heaven.

Where in my post did i say people were dying? I said it would be disconcerting, not dangerous.


Your original quote was "fear for my life". An English speaker would consider that "dying".

At dictionary.com the definition of disconcerting is: disturbing to one's composure or self-possession; upsetting, discomfiting.
At dictionary.com the definition of dangerous is: full of danger or risk; causing danger; perilous; risky; hazardous; unsafe, able or likely to cause physical injury.

I'd say dying and fear for life fits the definition of dangerous better than disconcerting.

That is an amazing weight, even if it is for their smallest size! And I'm pretty sure it doesn't cost as much as an RCA...

An italian shop working closely with Extralite has built up one with a Sram Red at 3.77kg.

Extralite is the simple proof of the fact that even a small company can make a very well designed, reliable and superlight bike component. I would get it over anything from Cervelo or Cannondale. I even like the integrated seatmast.

So....no ride reports, no long term reviews, no info whatsoever, but it's "well designed and reliable".......really?

in fairness he did say bicycle components ... everything I've used from Extralite has been solid. They are my go to hubs. I have heard of faceplate issues on the stems, but has not happened to me personally.

Their issue with the Hyperstem is well documented. Also I recently took off my Aliens 4 QRs as they don't have enough clamping force for my 62kg body and 210w FTP.

Does anyone know of a weight limit for this frame?

I have the Aliens 4 and they work perfectly. You must be doing something wrong.
This frame looks awesome, really looking forward to seeing more photos.

I failed to notice the integrated seatpost when I first saw the picture. Big, big negative. It is surprising they were able to get the weight down to 596 grams WITH the integrated seatpost. I would think an ISP would increase the frame weight. Might be lighter overall by replacing the seatpost.

Internal cable routing is not a PITA really with the various cable routing kits out. When I had cables I liked it. If you run a sealed housing system especially you end up with a cable system that takes a lot longer to gunk up and shift slowly, it looks cleaner, and with wired systems it's a no-brainer.

You have never used anything from Extralite, right?

My buddy from Bikeonline.it built this particular bike for a customer. With the chosen parts, it costs about €13000. Check out the gallery over here: https://www.facebook.com/bikeonline.it/posts/1286365061435066
