Long time listener, first time caller...

Bought the frame on ebay, and since it didn't have a name, I decided to call it Moloko Plus (Clockwork Orange fans know what I'm talking about)

Final weight: 6.24 kg
Eventually plan to upgrade groupset, buy weenie brakes, maybe lighter fork, more tuning, etc. for a sub 6 kg build.

I normally find Black Widows kinda boring. But, that is a classy bike and I really like it. Nice job, great attention to details.

Those wheels look very sharp with the Vittoria tires. Oh, and fellow old tyme Flite lover here. Very nice bike!

Oh yeah, and Moloko Plus clearly is the best recovery drink anyone could ask for. Cool name. Saw that movie via my older brother when I was pretty young. Still blows my mind many years later.

a nice proof of that the 6.8kg WL is a bit outdated.. :) "only" Centaur components with a 1kilo frame and 350 g fork, 25mm tubbies and deep wheels, yet still well under the limit.

Congratulations, very wisely chosen kit. :)

This is a really nice bike, great proportion!

Couldn't find this frame anywhere in ebay or any other chinese vendors. Mind sharing where you bought it from?

p/s The humor in Clockwork Orange is too dry I don't consider it as humor at all..

@gravity, the frame is from Flyxii. It is the FR322 model. I got mine on ebay for ~450 shipped.

I have actually put record/super record on the bike now and the thread is in need of an update. Someday I'll get around to it.
