Well, here it is. It´s a bit of a bastard with a mixed group set with Shimano, Campa, SRAM and FSA, but it works perfectly.

I have ridden it for a app. 180km since weddensday and it is very racy. Light, stiff and a lot harder than my Titanium Argon. Me like a lot.

I´m using a Centaur cassette and chain. All for the purpose of getting closer to the UCI limit.... I have removed all the aluminium and titanium bolts, too. Still it weighs 6,66 with training wheels on. I haven´t weighed it with the Bora´s, but it should be about 6,3kg´s without trying.

Now I just hope no one will weigh it on sunday for the first race of the season. :shock: :evil: If they do, a set of Bora´s will probably be on the "for sale" section, and a set of Cosmic Carbones will have to take it´s place....

Or if you're really desperate, send them to me and I'll swap you for a set of 10spd converted old-style Shamals. :wink: That should put any weight concerns to rest.

Very nice Thomas!

I hope you don't have to sell your Boras! Those wheels are just perfect, and looks even more perfect on your new Scott.

Does the Addict have another geometry than the CR1 now where you have swiched back to Scott?

Can't wait to see it in real :D

Hej Thomas,

looks amazing - you always build nice bikes. Hope that you will enjoy it and don't have to sell the wheels. Should be easy to put on some weight without sacrificing performance of your bike.

Thanks guys. Any ideas on making the bike heavier? I have some lead bullets? for an air gun I can put in a plastic bag and put in the seat tube....

I will not have an other seat than my beloved SLR, and the bars are some heavy Deda Newtons. All aluminium and titanium bolts are removed.

Stupid rule..... I hate 6.8.
