Is there a big difference between a moots titanium fork or a carbon fork?

Hi,

As I´m the friend with the Psychlo-X I think I will share some of my selections with you. First: I´m no weight weenie, and some of the parts I use come frome another bike. But here it is, as for now. I will upload pictures when the bike has been assembled (got it yesterday night!):

Headset: Chris King
Stem: Ritchey WCS OS
Handlebars: ditto
Seatpost: Campagnolo Record Carbon
Seat: Fi:zik Arione
STI-shifters: No way Campa Record Ultra Ergopower
Front and rear derailleur: Campa Record Carbon
Cassette: Record Titanium 12-23

Pedals: Time ATAC Titanium/carbon
Racewheels: Tune mig/mag, Sapim cx-ray, Mavic CPX tubular

Well, almost. Here is the preliminary result. I have to point out, that I´m no WW, so no part is chosen because of it´s weight, but only because I find it superiour to other parts on the market.

Frame: Moots Psychlo-X 52 cm ~ 1642 g
Fork: Kocmo Titanium, prepared by Moots to the exact same finish ~597 g
Headset: Chris King ~ weight included in frame and fork
Stem: Moots Ti-Beam ~ 192 g
Handlebars: FRM Web Bar ~ 240 g
Seatpost: Moots Titanium ~ 182 g
Seat: Fi:zik Arione ~ 250 g
Shifters: Campa Record Ultra Ergopower ~ 369 g (with inner cables)
Front and rear derailleur: Campa Record Carbon ~ 275 g
Cassette: Record Titanium 12-23 ~ 156 g
Crankset: FRM Integrale Compact (48/34) ~ 740 g
Chain: Campagnolo C10 ~ 267 g
Pedals: Time ATAC Titanium/carbon ~ 371 g
Racewheels: Tune mig/mag, Sapim cx-ray, Mavic Reflex tubular ~ 1435 g
Tires: Tufo Elite Tubular ~ 600 g
Brakes: Avid Shorty 4 (Paul neo retro are on there way!) ~ 363 g
Handlebar tape: Pro X-tra padded ~ 90 g
Extras: Outer cables, cable stop etc ~ 150 g

Total weight: 7919 g.

With a lighter saddle and pedals I could aim for 7,5 kg, but I like my parts, because they work very well. And when I put my training wheels and a water bottle on the bike the weight increases significantly.

Just for the fun of it I attach a few pictures of the bike.

Regards

martin

Very nice. Although I don't like your bar height. Isn't it to high for racing? But if you feel it's good, that's the important. I would take it with black tires.

The bar could seem a bit high, but Moots has a philosophy of stretching out the toptube (53,8 cm on a 52 cm frame) and compensating by a slightly higher handlebar. But I haven´t dialed the bike totally in (I only have 15 km on pavement on it).

With regard to the yellow tires: they came with the wheelset. I will soon change to black (with brown sidewalls).

Regards

Martin

Umh, if you really race, how does the color of the tyres matter? I use the best performing tyre I can get/afford for racing not the best looking one.

For now I just build the bike for versatile training. Here I will use my training wheels (Campagnolo Eurus with Michelin Mud tires). During the winter I will race cross-duathlons on the Tune wheels with the best possible tires - no matter what the colour is.
