Bought an extra bike for my dad:

-Full ultegra
-4za seatpost
-Arte selle saddle
-shimano rs20 wheels
-Pro stealth handlebars

Paid around 500 euros for it in total :beerchug:

Any idea's where to start making them both lighter and better?

Wheels for sure. Those miche hoops weigh about 2kg, you should be to loose 500g easily while still having a fairly robust set of wheels.

Exactly, a pair of Shimano DA C24's are a good start if you live in an area with crosswinds. After some proper wheels bars, stem and seatpost come to mind. Ritchey WCS is always a good choice for reasonable money.

I nearly forgot, a set of high performance tyres can change your bike. Michelin pro3's are on sale almost everywhere, if you pair them with latex inner tubes your bike instantly feels like a racer.

It' been a while, but we're getting there.. slowly :lol:

Changed to arione cx carbon saddle and bought my first tubular wheelset as I plan to do some races this summer.

Next up is a lighter seatpost, which is on it's way and this summer I'll probably switch to Sram force or red.

Can't wait for the snow to melt as I'm getting tired of my rollers :cry:

Hi I am new to the forum and am building up a 2008 Cayo after buying a frame.
Nice build you have there roderik :)

I am really struggling finding a suitable seatpost clamp/collar that fits to the frame.
I need one of about 18mm in height.
Has anyone got any ideas for me of one that would fit well?

Thanks

Upgraded the focus one last time, switched to campa record 10 speed/dura ace mixed group:

Image

But after a long search, I finally found mij dreambike for a reasonable price:

Image

Came with time stem, deda zero 100 bars and selle Italia slr xp saddle.

Plan is to complete the campa groupset on the VXRs and sell the focus...

Reason I allways wanted this bike was this picture of Boonen's version in 2005:

Image

I allready had the record 10spd. shifters, front and rear der. but still needed all the rest.
After some searching I found exactly the same crank and bracket. I know it isn't the lightest, but I just had to have this one.

Image

Bracket was +- 180g and crank +-650g :oops:

Also bought chorus cassette and record 10spd chain, so now it's looking like this as I'm waiting for the brakes and bartape:

Nice.

I'm considering re-building my Time. I've been loathe to sell it, so it's sat in a box in my son's bedroom for the last 4 years. :D

Thx!

Brakes arrived...

Done... for now...

I'll weigh it asap, but it's definitely lighter compared to the focus.

Exams over, got myself a pair of fulcrum racing zero's for training wheels.

Image

Set out for 2nd training on the new bike, really impressed by the ride of bike and wheels.
But when I was about 2km from arriving back home this happened:

Image

Image

Driver forgot to check his mirrors, just turned in his street and bam, there I went. A lot of bumps and bruises but nothing broken.

Wheels, rear der. , rear brakes, sadlle, shoes clothes all gone, hope I can save the frame...

I would get your frame checked out by a pro to ensure it would let you down whilst riding it in the future.
