Hey Guys, Inspired by Hoven's thread i present you my Condor model 2013 build with the heavier (stiffer) Dedacciai tubing.

It weighs 8,1kg's as shown, I have had a light Allez before LINK which weighed 6,2kg's but i find with the Condor aesthetics matter alot and i race crits with it so i like the solid parts.

Frame: Super Acciaio, North of 1900grams.
Seatpost: Thomson Elite, 290grams.
Seat: Fizik Arione braided.
Stem: Thomson X2 110mm 10°
Bar: Pro Vibe 40cm
Brakes: Ultegra 6700
Crankset: Sworks
Chainrings: Stronglight CT2
Shifters: Ultegra 6700.
Wheels:27mm Wide tubulare wheels 86/56
Tires: Vittoria Evo Corsa SC

It rides very nice can recommend to anyone except hillclimb TT'ers because of the Weight
Altough with my light wheels and parts transferred from the allez it weighed 6,9 so thats not to bad especially with ultegra shifters.
Any input is welcome i always like to improve.

It looks great! (Although personally i would choose other tape on the bar.)
You can (should) save at least 100g with a kcnc seatpost, and another 100g with planetx brakes
Great bike,

Yeah, the bike begs for campy. Also, I prefer the pink bar tape because of Rapha.

Great bike,


Yea i know, A Masterpiece will be the next upgrade which alone will save 130grams and then maybe A Thomson bar for a another 80grams, i have Planetx brakes laying around but i like the confidence i get from the Shimano calipers.
And indeed Campy Sr would be very nice but apart from looks i am not really a Campy guy.
Thx for the reply's. Need to take some better pics though.

This bike is sweet and I like the Rapha-like white and pink touches. Agree Campag and it would be perfect, but each to their own.

I've got a alu Condor and the ride and fit is just wonderful, so I can believe this is.

Gorgeous bike - I was actually at Condor yesterday in London and fell in love with just about every rig I saw. Excellent choice, I'd love to have one some day. Enjoy!

And keep that pink tape - looks great.

Yeah, when you see this frame in person, you realize how sweet it really is (not that your pics aren't sweet, they are!)
