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!

Got bored at work and snapped some pics. Tried to get creative with a decent background too.

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.

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.
