Looks like a good build! I've not seen cranks in that size before (if you don't mind me saying so).
yes, but how much does it weigh?

got my bike built, however it came with some issues with the planetx not being able to modulate properly. It has been returned and was temporarily replaced with a SRAM apex caliper for the moment. Took the bike out last saturday and went out on a FRB on sunday with a local mate for 58km. Have not the time to weigh it in for the LBS was busy , shall update it when i can

Look very nice, you can loose some more weight if cut the fork a bit more, should be sub 7 KGS.

thanks Thanh, the fork is cut, however i havent been to the fitters to get the true height i need, at this moment its comfortable for long rides.

What i think it might hit sub 7kg is this
-headset cap & expander
-cables & housing
-the brakes calipers that were initially thought for the build
-tubes & tyres

best i could think of at this moment, if there is any else please do let me know :beerchug:

Very nice build, Have you cut the excess seatpost? how are you getting on with those Exusar pedals? Do they take look cleats?

What about some BB30 cranks? Could probably shave 200g there...
I write the weightweenies blog, hope you like it :)
