I love the cross bike thread in the gallery forum. Many awesome builds. What I would love to see is cross builds say 7 kg and less and would prefer canti bikes but if you have a disc bike light lets see that too.

I recently built a Sette CX - 1 with fork, 1250 grams on the frame and 510 grams on the fork into a 7.3 kg bike with a few weight weenie parts and basically a Sram Rival kit.

Show me what you have!

Hi Kevin, I'm sure it was you. eBay deal correct? Small world.

Sub 7 on a cross bike seems to me like a seriously light build if you want to keep uncompromised usability.

At the moment I'm trying hard to achieve that goal, starting off with a Stevens team carbon frame set.

Further items I bought:
Frameset 56 1650g
YOELEO Super Light 23MM Wide
Carbon Wheels Tubular 50MM 1300g
Tires Challenge Griffo XS 750g
Sytace Racelite steerer 46 wide 200g
Crankset Clavicula 48/36 550g
Stem Extralite 90g
Seatpost MCFK 130g
Saddle Spezialized Toupe 110g
Ultegra STI's 400g
FD Shimano CX-70 80g
RD Dura Ace 9700 160g
Cassette Dura Ace 12-28 200g
Pedals Eggbeater titan 230g
Brake Berner CX 180g
Chain KMC X10 SL 230g
Small parts 500g

Adds up to calculated 6760g. I'm pretty sure it gets damn close to keep it sub 7kg on actual scale.
I'll have all parts here next week. I keep you updated.

Christian

Lets see some pictures Quicksilver. Sounds like an excellent build!

Here you go. Shitty Phone Pix but I hope you get the idea.

Some items still on their way. Still in place silver Ultregra derailleur and Bontrager stem, which will get replaced.
Gladly tires arrived today. Look way better than the old ones with tan sidewalls :D

Downside: hits the scale with 7,3 kg. I don't really understand it. I thought I did my maths right. Since today I know the rims were little bit heavier than expected (1400 g) tires were 340 g, which is better than expected.
For sub 7 I have to ditch the heavy Ultegra STI's. Red yokes, light QR and cross brake levers still missing.

When finished I will make proper pix.

Greets to everybody on WW.

Looks great.

Always weigh everything individually so that you know where you have miscalculated :-)

Did you remember headset and bb?

Bottom bracket is about 80g. Standard THM part.

I don't know which headset was used. Got it with the frame. Relating to difference of calculated / real weight I have to admit, that you are absolutely correct. Next time I won't be so lazy again and put everything on the scale :evil:
I'm really curious what caused the difference. My prime suspect is the frame set. Maybe I'll check it out.

Finally Extralite stem arrived as well. I just ordered SRAM Red shifters and derailleurs. Everything on its way.

Have to get that fat sucker sub 7 without changing rims. If I fail I'll weigh without pedals :wink: NOT.

Will try to finally get around to weigh and take a pic of my Scott Addict CX soon. It's around 6.8 kg.

Here is my old faihful. 2010 Scott Addict CX RC. Sram Red 2013 shifter w X0 type2 rear derailleur. Force crank w Absolute Black 42t narrow/wide ring. Cassette is ultegra 11-28. Bar/stem is Pro PLT and pedals eggbeater 4ti. Spec Toupe seat. Brakes TRP EuroX carbon. Wheels are custom w DT240 hub rear, no name hub front and Planet X 20mm tubular rims. Dt comp spokes and brass nipples. Tufo tubulars.
Weight is 6.73. I think that's pretty good w heavy cassette and bars. W aluwheels (dt240/ambrosio chrono) it weighs 7.03.

Haha, silly me. Just about blowing my budget ;-)
Found an affordable Carbon Tune Olympic Gold wheel set. It's built of Zipp 285 rims and tune Mig/Mag. Couldn't resist. Should shave off 300 g. In addition to Red shifting group I should be able to reach 6700 g with full 2 x 10 setup.

Still have to find the heavy culprit of my miscalculation - even if it's my scale.
