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.

Ridden over 15k miles since purchase in 2007.

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.

Hi Bill
That should hold it! I found my old hanger still intact in a workbox, you can see in this pic how the epoxy bond has ripped away a few layers of carbon upon removal. It looks as though your epoxy glue or more likely a couple of outer carbon layers have given way, maybe the two rivets have corroded causing it to fail. If your repair gives up I would be inclinded to drill out those rivets fit slightly larger and re-glue. I doubt I will ever use mine again so if you need it to replace yours its here and your welcome to claim it for cost of postage, I'm in UK :thumbup:

Thanks. The rear of the hanger has a short length of staninless steel strapping bolted between the hanger and derailluer mounting plate. The other end of the twisted strap is held in place by the head of the long nut for the rear brake. As there is some tension on the strap when the nut was fully tightened, I don't expect anymore failure. The strap support makes the hanger more rigid than prior to failure.

Any tips for keeping your Madfiber wheels from delaminating?
