Cool BUT if you put Real tires on it(+260g), a usable cassette(+100g) and pedals it's over 11#'s.

Also note those chainrings will flex like crazy, really not a usable bike.

All of that an then not getting an internal battery to save weight and get rid of the zip tie and bottle mount bracket which looks so bad.

Awesome bike!

Absolutely nothing wrong with Recon cassettes, and those Extralite chainrings are fine. Tufo tyres do suck though. Surely some weight could be lost with a different seatpost though? Still I do like the look of the Extralite one.

Seatpost is facing the wrong way. Overall, pretty sweet.

I use those chainrings and they seem to work fine for me. I love the bike. Keep it up.

The cassette is working. Have a 11-25 on my CX. Not good shiftings on the smallest but works okey on the bigger rings. Tuned Red derailleur and KMC X10SL chain. Have been trying to kill it but it's been hard for my 62kg but soon it's dead after half a year ;)

+1 on internal battery, feels sad to have a so big, heavy and ugly on such a light bike

Ok I will try a Recon cassette, but if it sucks I'm going to be pissed! :)
