Ridiculous weight! Congrats. What bottom bracket shell did you go with and what cranks do you have in mind?
It's designed to work with the AX Morpheus. It's basically a bb386.
The Ruegamer was meant to be an "über" weenie build, but when the frame came in at 1087g I knew it wasnt going to be what I was looking for.
I admire your keeness to want to build what you call an uber lightweight build. Getting the first thing right would be a start, ie. the frame. Surely a frame with an integrated seatpost is lighter than a traditional frame + seatpost?
Not necessarily... my seatpost and saddle will weigh around 125g when done. Jure Berk is building me a nano carbon combo, using the Tune Speedneedle shape. Here are a few "in production" pics, as the parts were pulled from the moulds:
Wow almost a full pound difference b/t the Crumpton and the Ruegamer, you have got to be excited. Not that many 8lb bikes floating around out there. Are you going to use parts intended to go on the previously mentioned 18page Ruegamer build for the Crumpton frame? Or are you building the Rue as planned and getting all new uber light parts for the Crumpton?
I kept some of the parts intended for the Rue, but the uber-light parts were saved for the Crumpton. There will also be some tuning with the components on this build, which I didn't do on the Ruegamer.
Very nice project. Are you going to NAHBS?
Unfortunately no. A lot of you guys and girls will likely see it before me.
Be nice to it
