So few new goodies have arrived.
New seatpost, climax one as recommended to me. After seeing it in person does seem to be of very high build quality. Has a really small titanium support which goes through the seatpost, it's also hollow don't know if that's a worry. Never seen a seatpost break on that part so should be okay. 3 Grams over claimed so not bad at all.
Climax 31.6 350mm Ti Hardware - 138G
Ward Ind. eggbeater Ti Spindles - 56G
Rest should be arriving and leaving r2 bikes soon, just waiting for a tune axle to come in stock, another week plus bit of shipping time. So stay tuned!
Some new stuff arrived today, will post pictures of weights soon,
Sram BB30 BB
Ti bolt kit for Ritchey c260 stem
Formula mix matcher for sram shifter
Formula calliper washers
Reason: no need to quote the above.
First up some spokes, CX-Ray Sapim - 310G (48 292mm, 16 292mm)
Dt Swiss alloy nipples 12mm - 18G (x64)
Tune Princess hub 15mm - 102G (Feels so light for what it is!!)
Tune Kong XD hub 12x142mm - 214G
American Classic Tubeless valves - 6G (Scale only increments in 2g's so think these are claimed weight of 5 as it was fluctuating between 4-6, need new scale!)
The entire wheelset - 1446G (Not the lightest but rims are the heavy bit here rated for all mountain use and 24mm internal width, so stiffness and extra tyre strength should make up for the extra 100 grams or so)
Updated picture with the new seatpost, I personally like the look of the graphics. Also shows the $410USD frame in all its glory. Probably think I am crazy putting all this gear on such a cheap frame.
Still going to be a little while before it's built as I need to purchase a spoke tension meter that can measure bladed spokes. That didn't occur to me until I received the spokes. Keep tuned.
So I recon once I make all those changes I am looking at sub 8 without pedals. Hopefully.
Now the only bad part is the seat post is a little too short by 3cm or so. Going to have to get a 400mm seatpost. Thinking about a syntace P6 hiflex carbon despite its weight (216grams or so) because the bike almost feels too stiff as it stands. Also have plans for a extralight -12 stem down the track and possibly the new shimano 9000 xtr brakes when they come out.
Must say I am very impressed with the build, and I'm confident in saying buying boutique and chinese can work. Will post pics soon.
I have a rigid build that I want to start to tune a bit more. Currently at 16.95 lbs / 7690 gram so if you have front suspension and sub 8kg that would be amazing. I could really go lighter on my post and saddle that is for sure.
AERO & LIGHT is RIGHT
Cervelo SLC 5960g/13.13 lbs
Took it for its first real run today. All went well, love the bike. Not a fan of the saddle though, so might opt for a bit of comfort. Bought a ritchey WCS carbon streem saddle off a friend in red today xD
And I also punctured the top of my thunder burt on it's first real ride. Maybe these tires are a little flimsy.

Looking good Nicholas, solid but reliable build I like it...
Is the pic from The Gap, or Daisy Hill / Cornubia?.. Good luck with the Burts around there, a little rocky IMO.
I noticed the QLD reg in the previous pic, good to see another Aussie on the boards.
