I know the black bike theme has been done to death but I still love a well executed stealth bike. Well done :thumbup:

Just wondering on the total cost you would say for something like this?

Actually...I built this bike on a pretty tight budget, there isn't really anything 'exotic' on it and I re-used a lot of parts I had in the garage. The cost of the components in this build are small compared to the time spent daydreaming, researching, fiddling with a spreadsheet, sourcing the parts, tracking packages, weighing each item, measuring twice/cutting once, sanding/stripping/buffing, ordering the correct tools, careful assembly technique, etc.

clever build list, and you've managed to carry through the matt look to synchronise most of the components which looks great :thumbup:

Have you any feedback on the bottle cage?
It looks nice and light... I'm just wondering if it holds on to the bottles well...
Thanks


Scotty, the Smud ultralite is designed for Tacx bottles, that's all I've tried so far. I definitely don't worry about the bottle falling out. It's a very tight fit and it subsequently takes a bit of finesse to remove and insert a bottle. I imagine a racer would want something more practical. The countersunk M5 alloy bolts which were included had a 2mm shank which prevented the bolts from tightening down on the thin cage - I sourced replacements (M5x10) on my own.

very slick. I'm impressed by the weight, nothing is super exotic, but just extremely well done and thought out

Very good attention to detail and well thought out. It looks great and kudos for building something that is not super exotic and therefore not expensive.

No offense...just wondering why a 14.5lb bike is a sticky on Weightweenies? Shouldn't we be encouraging more lightweight builds so this doesn't turn into roadbikereview forum? :noidea:

Sort of agree, but it is a great build for the price, so I am guessing they want to encourage people to have a go and not be put off by the need for exotic components, just careful selection?

Yes I agree, but weight has to be of some importance. No?

Because we feel that showing the craft that the OP did with both component choice, re-finish of the frame and final weight is deserving of being recognised.

Throwing a wad of cash to get a WW bike is one thing. To do it on a budget and have it look like this has and in Aluminium no less is praise worthy.

Of course you can disagree, that's fine :beerchug:
