Hi,

My latest bike, i've been gathering parts for 4 months, the frame was the hardest choice and came last. Now it's almost finished and took some quick pics with my phone. Will do some better pics when the weather in Belgium will be better.

Build list:

Frame+fork Ridley Helium
Rear mech SRAM Force
Front mech SRAM Force
Brakes SRAM Force
Crankset ROTOR Agilis compact
Shifters SRAM Red
Cassette SHIMANO Ultegra > Will swap to SRAM Red in a few days when i receive it
Stem & bars: RITCHEY Wcs with black faceplate
Bar tape DEDA
Wheels 4ZA T25 with KCNC skewers
Tubes Conti Competition
Cables JAGWIRE Racer kit red
Cages Tacx Tao Carbon
Saddle FIZIK Arione CX
Pedals SHIMANO Ultegra > will swap to Ultegra carbon in a few days

Total weight as pictured 6.890kg.

I am very pleased that I will reach 6.8kg with the new pedals and cassette. That is however without the GARMIN 500.
For next season I have purchased a set of easton EC90 Aero wheels wich will make it about 6.750 with the Garmin included.
Now I just have to wait till next season to race it... :|

Theoretically it would weigh 6.818kg with the 4za T25 wheels and Garmin included. Makes me very happy since i was on a budget! Propably will get to 6.6kg with the easton ec90 aero wheels, my first -7kg bike ever!!

I am a little disappointed in the agilis crankset, firstly in the color which is darker red as i expected, and secondly in the weight of it.
A Sram red crankset which I could have bought for less would have weighed less. (The agilis with BB and Chainrings is 770g.)

Are there any difference of color between the center nut and the spider arm? I'm interested in this chainset but it's too heavy and too much red.

but this corresponds to rotors declaration of weight: 525 gramm for the crankset, 100 gramm for BB and ca 120 gr.-140 gr for chainrings of your choice, plus screws.....i think, 770 gramm are expectable.

i have to say: the rotor is a very reliable crank/BB-system. i have been using mine a lot in climbing-situations, without any tedious problems like impulse-noise, etcetera (i had those problems with mega-exo- and isis-cranks, terrible!). it just works.
i never used a sram-crankset, but, according to my present knowledge, the gpx-BB could spell trouble.

so, if you are riding regularly, and, sometimes, with some pressure, i just can recommend to retain the agilis.

ps: nice bike, love it with the flat wheelset.
