i would also sand the fork and get rid of those decals/logos. i also preferred the frame without the trek-logo... a reynolds ouzo pro fork would also be a nice fit for this frame!

I will do it, but that will be one of my winter project.

Maybe i will also try to do the clear coat of the frame again, i will need a can of clear for the fork, and i'm not really satisfied of my first clear job. Some place are fine and shinny, but on other place you can see a lot of waves (i don't know how to describe that).

This is also interesting to see someone who liked more the no logo version. I really prefer the bike with the logo, but this may change with the time...

i may be to wrong but i think that it will be below 6.8kg,

For the moment the bike is at 7.02kg.

The new fork is 100g lighter, and the stem/quill on the bike is about 300gr for the moment. I have a ritchey WSC on the way at about 105gr.

I also got some other little things in progress, new pedal, red rear derailleur, but for the moment i got problem with it (see the subject on road discussion)http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=116790

Really like how the aluminium frame looks after stripping the paint and adding clear coat. Have been thinking of doing something similar to my frame. What kind of clear coat did you use?

Sweet project. I did this with an old 2001 5200 myself. Did you ever get the new fork on yet? That should be a huge upgrade.

Sorry for the delayed answer

Yes i finaly put the new fork on the bike.

I have also done some others update.

News Shimano dura ace wh-7850-c24-tu, around 1250gr
with some vittoria corsa evo CX tire

The fork was changed for the bianci one, the fork have been scrapped and i have redone the clear. I got a ritcheys WSC stem, for 1 1/8 steerer and 26mm handlebar, light and cheep, around 110gr.

The rear derailleur is now a sram red 10 speed, with a sram rival external cage at 157gr

The new weight is at 6.41kg or 14.15 pounds.
