I have some for my monster bike build (just waiting for the frame and wheels). They look a little rough, but seem adequate, I'll PM you when I've fitted them.

I agree.

I'm going to use a Pedalsoft stem and the 21mm 135gm Tufo tires.

Also, I can't use those cranks, they only come in 172.5mm length, too short for me. But I'll get close (1/2 lb) to the weight :twisted:

that tire is not suitable for road use, only indoor or track, plus it has a lower tpi. what crank will you use?

FRM CU2 180mm.

I know it says indoor or track, but I don't see a problem on special event wheels (Spada Winium). I also have a set of Spada Carbon Aero's (38mm rim) coming, those will have the 215gm tires.
