Hello,

New here so I thought let's show my bikes. First bike got replaced due to a small crack. A new frame with some new parts. Due to all the reading on the forum I got inspired tuning my own bike. With this as a result. A sanded off most of the logo's and re-sprayed them with clear coat. Better photo's will follow. It now weighs +/-7.2 kg. Not that ww yet. But as much ww as my budget goes right now.
Thanks everybody for all inspiration

Spec list:
Koga Road racer 60cm
Sram Force compact including 1070 casette and chain
3T Team stem and seatpost. Ergonova steer
Time i clic carbon
Lizard skins 2.5
Procraft carbon seatpost clamp
Michelin pro 3 with latex inner tubes.
Mr control skrewers
Mavis Ksyrium elite
Cat eye strada wireless
Selle italia slr carbon rails
Tacx ceramic jockey wheels
Elite pase bottle cages
Here and there some alu bolts

Plans :
Carbon wheels.
A new head set so I can "slam that stem".

Welcome to the forum! :welcome: I like the looks of your bike. It appears to be an excellent frame for a base to lighten!

Slam that stem? Seems you have a pretty healthy saddle-to-bar drop already! ;)
Nice bike!

Nice bike! I really like the Skill paint scheme. Great job on the customizing too.
