Absolutely nothing :lol:
... Well maybe one or two areas, its proven a great test bed for ideas.
It would be nice to start a fresh and build a frame from scratch one day!

66.jpg
My "stock" 66


Weight as shown approx. 10 kilos with a 11-30 cassette and a long cage derailleur

However, the following are included:
Futura X computer and forward mirror 53g
Solar storm headlight 80g
Seatpost tailight (cheapo Chinese headlight w/ a red lens fitted) 84 g
Tire inflator w/ 2 cartridges 141g
Insulated bottle bag w/ 2 tire patches 50g
Cygolite hotshot 30 tail light 44g
2 18650 batteries, case & leather cover 141g
nitrile glove stuffed in bottom of seatpost 5g


Plus Futura wireless sending unit & spoke magnet (not easy to remove), a mirror in left handle bar end, reflectors on rear of cage pedals.

over 0.6 k of added weight.

I like toe clips & straps so I can wear light weight shoes I can walk comfortably in in case of a breakdown.

My body weight. 57.7k
Bike + rider with gear less than 70 Kilos :D

Ridden over 15k miles since purchase in 2007.

Weight 9.254k

This is a fantastic bike/mod/thread! Probably the most interesting build I've seen on here. Chapeaux!

Well I have started a Scott Addict WW build and some of this Di2 groupset needs to be included on the new frame. So what todo with this frameset? Hang it on a wall or sell... :noidea: as yet.

Realistically, you're never going to get out what you put into that frame (money and time). I would hang it up in your garage, until such time as you can put it back together, and ride it.
