Weight is 8.2kg with standard db spoked wheels. Tubs will drop it down to 7.5 I reckon.

Light wheels should definitely bring it in to the 7.5 realm. Very nice build.

Everything about the (Condor frameset, not the Enigma highjack) bike is wonderful except that Deda Dark Metal stem. As expected, it is just an eyesore on that otherwise flawless build. What happened to the Fizik of black Deda stem? Hit the black Deda stem with some acetone and you have a complete win.

I wasn't trying to hijack anyone's thread, just showing a similar build. GFY

In the flesh hit looks fine. They said, a stem is on its way to be sprayed to match the frame.

No hijack. Pleased you posted yours as it raised/lowered the weight bar!

I was being sarcastic about the hijack. Apologies for the lost in translation post.
The Enigma is a brilliant build as well.
The Condor with the color matched stem will be excellent. Post a shot when you can

Whoa, almost a kilo heavier than mine. I guess the integrated headset and BB30 on the Super Acciaio save a lot of weight, because otherwise our builds aren't that different.

It could be that all the class in that thing adds a kilo!

The difference is 600 grams, not a kilo :roll:

Main differences I see are that your wheels are 20/24 CX Rays and Pacenti rims, not to mention the carbon bars, Rotor cranks & BB30 and the headset. Trust me, this baby's getting new wheels which will close the gap.

Thought I'd try the Shamal HPW 12 Ti wheels. Just to get them home. ImageImageImage

Love it with the Shamal's. very nice build, well done. weight becomes less of an issue when it looks this good.

Slight issue with the Shamals is that they aren't really 11 speed compatible. But thanks to a Mavic cassette washer & a small spacer under the drive side locknut it works. The weight isn't an issue, you're right, but they are unforgiving to say the least! Ebay beckons methinks.
