i had this bike for some time now but never on this page.
For some years ago i startet the project to come under 6,5kg with an other frame. Times changes and so with them my bikeparts and the goals. changed the frame sometimes, changed the wheels sometimes and even the weight has come down to "under6", "under 5", "under 4,5", "under 10lb" ...yeah you get it i think.
The bike had many stages and so had i. Some years ago i mostly just bought parts, sometimes i bought quite special parts like morati stuff and so and sometimes i tried to get pieces together that were not ment to be together without doing a bit work on them.
But over time i startet to build my own stuff both in aluminium, titan and now even i carbon.
That is way more fun then just buying the parts. and the most fun is that you can build the parts exactly like you want to have them
and thats great if you want to have the real light stuff.
the bike is almost looking like this right now

right now the bike has 4296g and i said to myself that sub4000g would be cool to get this year.
i´m planing new homemade brakes, new homemade derailluer, change the fram to bb30, new cranks (maybe homemade) and some other parts will be changed.
here is the list
