Just got my new Bike yesterday. Built it up and have 50 miles on it so far. Bought the complete BH Ultralight RC Force at a very good deal. Basically only using the frame, fork, wheels, headset, BB and Crank. Storing/selling off all the other parts, as well as the old bike.

Built up with new parts/used parts from my other bike. Sorry for the bad picture, I will have better ones when I have more time.

Build List:
Frame: BH Ultralight RC Large BH Ultralight 825g
Fork BH Ultralight 293g cut
Crank: FSA SLK 52/38 175mm
Bar: Ritchey WCS Classic 42cm 251g
Stem: Ritchey WCS C260 110mm 113g >> Ritchey WCS C260 120mm 110g
Seat post: Ritchey WCS 1bolt UD 27.2x350mm 161g
Shifters: SRAM Red
Brakes: Planet-X CNC 205g >> KCNC C6
FD: SRAM Red
RD: SRAM Red
Saddle: Selle Italia SLR FLow 13 170g
Pedals: Look Keo 2 Max 248g
Training Wheels: Mavic Ksyrium equipe 1670g w/ Vittoria Rubino Pro Slick, Generic skewers
Race Wheels: Farsports 50mm Clincher 1360g w/ Continental GP4000s, KCNC Ti skewers
Bottle Cages: Farsports Carbon 2x18g

Weight with training wheels 16.00 lbs >> 15.125lbs 6.85 kgs
Weight with race wheels 15.00 lbs >> 14.25 6.47 kgs

Wanted to get the Raw Carbon/Blue paint scheme but none were available in my size, so I had to stick with the red/white. Not a huge fan of red but luckily it is very minimal. The White has to add a lot of weight and cleaning time, especially on a Large frame. Happy with the weight using mainly standard parts.

Good looking ride! Always liked BH.....

Black tape would finish her off nicely!

unfortunately I did not get to weigh the frame as it came as a complete bike and i just swapped certain components. However, a medium (56) frame in the Blue/Carbon color scheme weighs exactly 880 grams. Uncut fork is about 320 grams, IIRC. Hope that helps.

Changes are as follows:
BH Ultralight Frame: 825g size Large
BH Ultralight Fork: 307g uncut
Frame Hardware 51g

Black chainrings would give this build so much more!

i agree my chainrings need to go. Ive been eyeing the KCNC Cobwebs but havent seen anything about them regarding shifting performance or stiffness.

EDIT: Black chainrings ordered and on the way. Been lusting over these Cobwebs for quite some time.
