Guys thanks indeed. :beerchug:

@M4K1 : Bar is a 3T Ergosum Ltd (no Chinese bar,real 3T :) ) 44cm with a blacked field behind the 3T stem faceplate.
1 x 3T in front is enough. :D

BTW have been informed today that Extralite will introduce a new seat post clamp and blacks of the Ultra Clamp are already out of stock.
Will look around and either buy a New Ultimate or a Carbon-Ti clamp. There are lighter carbon clamps on the market but I like their clean look
and a one part clamp without slots between upper and lower clamp part is easier to clean.

Huge fan too. It's a great looking bike and given the fact I never seem them on the road makes it rare as well. I want one now!

China :
Rims and spokes.Saddle.Water bottle cages.

USA:

Taiwan:
Hubs.Chain catcher.QR's.

Germany:
Tires and tubes.

Turkey:
Headset cap. Pulleys.

Final weight with 2 bottle cages and bike computer:

Give or take.
-2x bottle cages and bolts = 37gr.
-Bike comp,sensor and magnet = 94 gr.

-With some very light tubes I will loose 75gr.
Not super WW but for me it feels "light". :D

Looks awesome! Love the aesthetics of that frame.

Where did you buy the bottle cages?
