Hi Weightweenies!

Just finished(almost) my first WW project, based on a TREK Supercaliber 9.9. Hope u will like it!

Factory default:

- Supercaliber frame
- FOX 32 SC fork and IsoStrut shock
- Bontrager XXX wheels

Apart from the ones above every other part on the bike has been changed (axles,bolts,seatpost,saddle, rim tape, valves, clamp, centerlock adapter, brake discs etc etc....)

the most important upgraded parts:

- bar: Gemini Propus
- brakes: Trickstuff Piccola
- rear derailleur controller: Zirbel
- powermeter: Quarq XX1 Eagle

About 300 - 350gr could be easily shaved off(on wheels and fork) but that will be just for the 2021 season. Well not sure about the fork tho..really like the look of the Kashima gold :)

Very nice, thank you for sharing! How long did you have to wait for the trickstuff brakes?

Garbaruk cassette.
This build dreamy, a Gemini cockpit and trickstuff piccolla set are the next things I'd do to my own build, this is perfect.

Unless you live somewhere super flat, a BikeYoke Divine SL would do wonders for that bike.
