First post after lurking for quite a while. Sorry for the crappy cellphone pic.
2007 SystemSix Frame Size 58cm
I absolutely LOVE the stiffness of this frame. It's quite insane how much stiffer it feels than anything else I've ever ridden. Especially with the bb30 and the hollowgram cranks, the SystemSix allows me to transfer every bit of power I put into my pedals straight into forward motion. It's a little jarring over rough roads, but same can be said about a CAAD10 I tried out previously.Drivetrain:
Hollowgram SI Standard double crank
Dura Ace 7800 shifters and rear derailleur
Ultegra 6700 Front derailleur
2008 Easton EA90 SLX wheelset
SRAM Red 11-23 CassetteCockpit and Saddle:
Ritchey WCS Logic Bar
Ritchey WCS Stem -17 degree (I'm stuck with a white one, but it's not worth swapping out for me as I love the weight and stiffness)
Fake "Ritchey Superlogic Seatpost". It's a chinese replica, design is the same as a Bontrager carbon post, but the hardware is absolute garbage. I'm trying to find just the hardware for a bonty post, but I might as well find a WCS post in 30.8. It comes in at 160g though, so not too bad for the ~25 i paid.
Selle Italia SLR XP saddleMisc:
Yokozuna Reaction Cables
Ultegra 6700 brakeset (Considering finding 7800 to match the set or grabbing a set of the Planet X CNC brakes)
Forte Carbon Cages (definitely on the upgrade list as they cannot hold a bottle over rougher roads)
Speedplay Chromoly Zero pedals, untuned.
Continental GP4000S Clincher tires
Vredestein Latex Tubes (LOVE these. 53g each and ride so beautifully.)
Generic chinese titanium skewers, $25 for ~45g skewersTotal weight: 16 lbs
on the dot as reported by a parktools scale.
I'm thinking of building up a set of 38mm tubular rims to cx-rays on the BHS Rotaz hubs. 20/24 and some light tubbies and I might be able to save about 400 grams from the wheels.
Planet X brakes will drop me another ~115 grams if they come in under 215 grams.
Titanium bolts and hollowgram SISL hardware may drop me another 50 grams.
I'm considering a carbon saddle, but I'd like a more robust seatpost before I get one those. The clamping system on this Bontrager clone is really bad. Maybe either a Ritchey WCS seatpost or a Thomson Masterpiece if I am able to find one for cheap.
