Next step will be to change the shifting cables with something really light (any suggestions are welcome) and perhaps replace my wheel hubs (dt swiss 2540s disk) with tune prince/princess gold or black. For the hub replacement i'm not sure yet as dt swiss are prooven bulletproof. On the other hand changing them will help me lighten the bike another 150 grams approximatelly. i'd like to hear your opinions.

Depending on your weight you could go Tune Prince/Princess or Extralite hubs and match them to the lightest road tubulars you can find. You should get close to a 900gram wheelset or even a little less depending on your weight. Maybe 16 spoke front wheel?

Thank you very much for your answer.
I wouldn't try extralite hubs because i've not heard the best comments about them from people using them. You should bear in mind that i'm using disk brakes so maybe (??) it would be too risky to use so little spokes(i'm using 32 spoke wheels now).I'm 1.85m and i weigh 83 kg so i guess you agree i'm not a light rider :lol: :lol:.As for the tires i'm willing to try lighter tires (veloflex extreme are 450 grams per pair) but my main priority is reliability.
Tune prince/princess are quite tempting though.

I love Bad Boys and own one myself. But I'm afraid this poor fella's lost its anima. Just my very humble opinion, though.

Good morning my friend. What do you mean when you say that it lost its "anima"? You mean its character? To be honest i tried to maintain its "bad looks" during the changes i made.

Hi, there, since you care for Bad Boys you are definately my friend as well :beerchug:
And yes, it's the character I meant. It is no part of your Boy in particular, just when viewed as a whole this no longer looks like a Bad Boy to me. I think it's weeniesm gone too far. The fork, the beautiful delicate stem, the silver chainrings, golden nuts ... don't belong...for me.
It is obvious a lot of thought and care went into your build. Are you happy with it? That's the most important about it. When you look at it, you should think: AWESOME! You should be driven to park it somewhere and just observe its good looks from different angles. If it does that for you, then you did right.
I just couldn't resist commenting 'cause I feel so strongly about Bad Boys and there aren't many to see. I feel that when Bad Boy looks and light weight clash, the former should prevail... That said, my current road bike is 5.8 kg, so...
I wish I could explain myself better, English language is not my strong suit.

Okey i see what you mean. Bad boy was love at first sight for me and just because of that i could't help myself customizing it.I wanted to build something unique and beautiful at the same time. When you see it "live" it's a hundred times better, i repeat i tried very hard not to spoil it's "bad character". On the other hand all opinions are accepted.
Again thank you very much for your answer! :)

I agree with GiantDale as well.
A stock bad boy is a nice piece of design, but it will always be a cafe racer bike. It doesn't need the weenie parts to be cool.
Big points for originality though!

Just a question, if you're weenie enough to go with schmolke parts, why do you leave on those awfull gear index displays?

I don't think that these changes have driven the bike to the "non cool" side.
As for the gear displays you suggest to take them off?

What about I-Link shifter cable housing and a Berk saddle/post combo. That is all that I can think of right now and I agree that you should ditch the shifter viewing pods.

I like it. A loony investment for a Bad Boy (IMHO), but isn't that what WW is all about?

Maybe it seems strange, but the bicycle which as a stock bad boy was already very fast for a city bike, is now competitive with many road bikes regarding speed and acceleration. Of course it is also very unique, something that you gain only by customizing a product.
As for the gear displays if i take them off how will the shifters stand on the flatbar?And how much weight am i going to lose?Is ti worth it?
For the shifting cables i thought of power cortz, what do you think?

This is mega, I love it. Do y commute on this or just like riding flat bars?
I'm doing similar to an orange gringo frame set but I drew the line at carbon tub rims!

I bet she flies through traffic and that surely makes her a badboy?

I'm running about 40 km 3-4 days of the wheek, but i bet i can do much more as it has become a very comfortable and fast ride.
