I had bought a budget cross / commute bike, Felt F95x two years ago. Removed all of the Sora, Tiagra junk and Built up what I thought would be a lite bike. It was my very first bike I had built myself. Turns out it cam in at 8981 grams total. I was a little disappointed. Eventually I tore the bike down and used the parts for other projects. I have been (not really) trying to sell the frame, I really don't want to. I am kind of attached to it for some reason. I love the color scheme!
Anyway, the previous build was all Rival with the Cross specific Rival crank set. The wheels were Mavic Ksyrium elite's 2006 model. Trp euro x brakes and a Ritchey WCS cockpit. Tires were origin-8 cross tires, cant remember the specific model.
So I completely took the frame and fork apart and weighed them.
51cm frame with the brake bosses and the B/B cable router came in at 1380g
Felt Fork came in at 670g
My goal is to have a complete build less then 7400g with in a budget.
Any suggestions on parts
So far this is what I have
3T ARX Team stem 132g
Felt 1.1 42cm bars 205g
Trp Euro X brakes (need to weigh)
Sram Rival Shifters
Sram Force Front Derailleur
Sram Rival Crankset
Sram 12-26 cassette
Looking for a used Red rear derailleur, and 3t Dorico seatpost.
Any other Ideas?
