Hello Weight Weenies!!

I´m building my first real road bike (I built a few for commuting already). I include my initial specs sheet. Parts in red are ordered already, parts in green are gonna be ordered soon. Sources for this last parts are ebay and bike-discount.de The base is a Hongfu chinese frame, with bsa bottom bracket and 3k matte finish, size 55 (I´m 1.8m tall, 84cm inside legs distance, 75cm bb-top of saddle).

Any feedback would be appreciated, also if you have any of the parts in red let me know. I think overall is ok. Perhaps some components are compromising a little bit, like tires an tubes, or maybe spokes but... we'll see. I will post weights and pics of the parts as they arrive.

Thanks.

Sounds like a good start!

BUT: ( :smartass: )
1.) I fear that the wheels will ne heavier than claimed.
2.) The tires will be DEFINITELY above 350g
3.) I'm skeptical of the 105 coming in under 2500g.

Let us take part in the evolution of your build. :)

I´m afraid I have to agree with you. These weights are from catalog most of them. Although 105 was weighed by an online mag with pics on scale, but, I also won't believe it until I see it. Still, weights shouldn't be too far, most I have seen them on scale, and tires are 165g each from catalog... I´ll close my fingers. Built must be 7,3Kg I think.

You might be able to save a little weight and money by going with the Microshift ARSIS group (Shifters, F Der., R Der.) available on ebay for about $200 (USD)
