OMG that is a huge frame! Love the XCR. The guy I bought my Pinella from (owns his own shop) finished building his wifes bike. Custom XCR drilled for Campy electric. Bike has full SR on it and it is tiny (she is like 5'4") so the bike weighs in at low 16's or so. Beautiful bike/frame for sure.

So I am now thinking that my future goal for the build is going to be 7000g or 15.4 lbs. It will take a little while mind you and some strategic planning but I think it can be done without having to build another set of wheels or buy an uber expensive crankset. We'll see.

Although not built as a Weight Weenie being our rough and tumble demonstrator bike we were happy with the 8.3 kgs on our KVA stainless, lugged build. The only carbon is that of the standard Chorus groupset and Fizik seatpost. We have someone looking at getting one of our frames and doing the whole Enve build thing with 1.25s, fork, stem, seatpost, bars so if that goes ahead I would really look forward to throwing that on the scales.

Hi there, the lugs are all from Darryl Llewellyn here in Australia. We used the non stainless lugs on the frame on this one but are available in stainless with the exception of the bb shell. Next bike is going to be all stainless lugs. All dropouts and the fork crown are stainless on this one.

Cheers
Keir
