The Kuota is finally finished. The complete parts list is below. The total weight built came out to 13.16 lbs. Quite a bit less than the list indicated. I was hoping for under 13 lbs., but I guess 13.16 lbs is not to bad considering the frame weighs 3 lbs.

Very nice JTC! Looks like theres even more weight to be taken off.

Bars Easton EC90 44mm 206.5 True Weight

Get some schmolkies and save 40g!

Get an Easton EC90 SLX SL and save another 60-70g, then you'll be sub 13lbs!!!

SICK MAN, SICK! :twisted:

Pimp!

You should get rid of the red tape and tire and go stealth with all black. Just my opinion.

Thats a beast, I really like that frame, is it stiff or what? if you don't mind me asking how much did the frame run?

Very nice JTC. I've never seen seatstays like that.. can you take a closer pic of the seatstays? It looks like they rake forward at the point the brake attaches ..?!

Yeah, I know, but I really love the shape of these bars.

Yes, I was dissapointed after receving the fork and it weighed 360g, but that was uncut with a rather long stear tube and there is no need for an expander plug as it is built in which eliminates weight also. I think the EC90 SLX Sl is 300g cut to 200mm if I am not mistaken.

I've had it a while so I have forgoten the exact price but the frame and original Kuota fork were around $2200-2400.

Nice job, wow!
Did you buy the Tiso stuff in US or overseas (I don't know where you are located)?
