Hello every one. I have recently stopped racing and so my races bike have been retired.

http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum ... hp?id=4058
http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum ... hp?id=4057

I still have the professional, but hanging on the wall in office with some of my race jerseys. The frames weighted 1050gm*.

Main reason to post is to show off my latest project. Not really a 12lb super bike, but just got together and feel like sharing. (note...haven't ridden even down the block, its like 2 degrees F out and lots of snow.

You will notice in the new bike some of the same components from the fuji, crank, pedals and masterpiece seatpost.

Because I was letting the carbon fuji out to pasture, I wanted to start with the components, get my dream parts and then look for the lusty frame. So the scantante frame is just a cheap temporary ride till I decide what frame I really want. Hey still need a bike I can ride.

Here it is:

Frame: Scantante (performance) Carbon SS
Fork: Easton EC90 SL
Handle bar: Forte (performance) Carbon
Stem: Forte (performance) 26.0
Seatpost: Thompson Masterpeice setback 27.2
Cages: Serfas Carbon Cirque (22g w/o bolts)
Saddle: Selle Italia SLR gelflow
Pedals: speedplay zero cromo
crank: FSA team issue carbon
bb: fsa platinum pro
chain: wipperman 10S
Cassette: Shimano DA 11-23
Wheels: Ritchey protocol 2005 shimano hub
tires: kenda kaliente
brakes: Record 2006
shifters: Record Ergo QS 2007
front dir: Record QS 2007
rear dir: Record 2007 (using a "shiftmate" for now)
Houseing/cables: Campy stock

Total Weight: 16.55lbs (7505g)

Alas the Zipp 404's are gone or this build would be much lighter, like the wheels for now, but looking for the next set and then will get all record drive-train. Thinking a custom 350 build with cx-ray spokes.

Other plans are for the easton equipe pro 26.0 if i can find one. Failed miserably in december to track one down...that is I ended up with the forte bar, order mix up and then got the forte for a song and dance. Sucks because the campy ergos don't fit very well on them. meh

Thinking a fsa ti BB or the AM Classic BB. Like a lighter saddle, but really in love with this specific saddle. Might do nokon for brake houseing, but will probably wait to see if the carbon ones are heading to US soon first.

As far a frame, I really like a compact Ti. Looking at the Litespeed Gisallo and the Moots Compact SL. Contemplating the Douglas 6/4 compact as an affordable option, but not sure about the douglas name. (shouldn't complain I just build up a scantante)

*-My Scantante frame is 1450gms, with the zipps and the fuji pro my ride could have been 15.3 lbs...anyway not bad for a heavy frame and wheels. Got a good base that will certainly fill my dream frame.

sanding paint and have new crank on the way, as well as, a bunch of Ti bolts and KMC 10SL chain. Pretty excited to rid my ride of the scan-crap-te stickers.

will have back together in a fews weeks, should be close to 7.1 kg. Don't think I can get much lower till I totally replace the frame and wheels. Thinking a custom ti after all the ti talk lately, but looking at Prima Elan wheels.

I am kind of laughing looking at the older pictures, I never even road the bike down the block. :D :lol: :oops:

I have made some updates and refinished the frame. I stripped the paint and sanded the rear stays. Clear coated mate on stays to match the fork. I have several AL bikes I stripped and polished. I like the light-ish tint of the tarnishing al, plus easy to take care of, 15 min with buffer and shiny again, scratch...sand it out. Anyway, saved 45 gm...lot of work for 45 gm, more for esthetics (someone please say it looks 100 time better now)



Ok, here was the build.

Frame: Scantante (performance) Carbon SS, striped and clear coat to carbon stays.
Fork: Easton EC90 SL
Handle bar: Forte (performance) Carbon
Stem: Forte (performance) 26.0
Seatpost: Thompson Masterpeice setback 27.2
Cages: Serfas Carbon Cirque (30g w bolts)
Saddle: Selle Italia SLR gelflow
Pedals: speedplay zero cromo
crank and BB: Chorus 07
chain: KMC 10SL
Cassette: Shimano DA 11-23
Wheels: Ritchey protocol 2005 shimano hub
tires: maxis xenith
tubes: maxis ultralite
brakes: Record 2006
shifters: Record Ergo QS 2007
front dir: Record QS 2007
rear dir: Record 2007 (using a "shiftmate" for now)
Houseing/cables: Campy stock

Total Weight: 15.96lbs (7239g)




NOTE: In picture were taken after I freaked out about the junk handle bar and stem. Had a really bad ride, sad when your first ride sucks so much. Anyway when to shop and realized that the ritchey combo not only looks great, but clearly fits my riding style much better. Went back to my tried and true Ritchey, just makes me realize I the next upgrade is the bar and stem. Added about 120gm with current picture. I have a fitting lined up for the next few weeks so I am going to hold off on that purchase until then, which is also why the steer tube is still long.

Thought people would like the look of the carbon wheels, they are not as light as the Protocols with the maxis. Put, dare I say, real tires on the protocols and they are a smig higher.

Oh Ritchey how could I have forsaken you. Sub 16 was a quite the draw.

Have made some updates...

Recent updates:

Abrosio Crono f20, AM Classic, Sapim Lazer Lite Wheels - 1332gm
Selle Italia SLR Carbon, Ti rail - 114 gm
Tufo 210s - 205/206 gm
WCS AL bar and 4 axis stem

Build Total as Pictured: 7015gm (15.46lbs)

Plans:

ZeroG 07...sitting at local shop: -146gm
Omni Seat Clamp...took off somewhere at my shop and can't find: -5gm
Trim Steer tube and two less spacers: -3gm
Extralite comresson plug...also at shop: -10gm
Record Cassette...veloce on there now: -70gm

...will eventually get be just below UCI at aprox 6780gm (14.94lbs)

All I am trying to do is get below 15lbs...not bad for a $170 frame that weights 3 lbs. Oh, about the tufos, have them want to use them up...plan to try out new competition black chillies eventually...:shock:

Thanks for look'n

a CycleDynamics cassette, instead of the Record, will certainly cost less, last longer, and may even weigh less, too.

Well done! No wasted $ here, everything is well thought out and not completely excessive. Its nice to see another Iowan on here. Where in this great state did you get Extralite and 0G? The stuff you have got will transfer nicely to a new Ti frame.

Forgot they were on there actually till after I got the photos loaded on my computer. I was playing with stickers, was going to get some with my own logo, using that specialized sticker pack to figure out the best sizing.

Wellp, the ZeroG's are on there, saved about 95gm net to new weight of 6920gm. Didn't get as much off as I would have liked, the new brakes take a little more housing to reach...like 30mm. I also had to use the nut from my frame for the rear and a washer on the front for brake clearance.

Note to Zero Gravity Install:

-You need extra housing
-With 21mm wide rims, the cam-latch doesn't work so just leave down.
-Also with 21mm wide rims, the extra cable leaving the pinch bolt will hit the bolt below it for the brake pad, it then acts like a little spring keeping the main arm from opening all the way. Just bend it out a little bit.


...ok back to searching...need to find 120gm I don't need that much, probably should clean my bike.
