Yes too bad AX was stopping to make brakes and parts for them.
Was hard to get my AX3000 Brakes for my bike.

How is the Ghisallo looking now? still 3,76kg?

Fuchspk - I haven't had a chance to ride the bike yet. It will not be at 3.76kg because I decided not to use the Clavicula SE crankset. Once I finish the bike I will post a full build list with weights. I have been distracted lately with work and have drifted away from cycling the last couple months :scared:

@craciunptr - For the Magnesium wheelset I was ready to go....but I ordered the wrong spoke lengths from China which was a costly mistake. I had to eat the cost and put this project to the side. I still have not ridden the bike!!! I want to finish these wheels so I am going to build them first using cheap steel spokes so I can get the lengths correct. Then I will order some Pillar Xtra-Lite Titanium Spokes for the second time. I also needed a replacement spring for the rear Ax Lightness brakes. After trying multiple vendors overseas for months who could not source me the part (R2-bike, Starbike, Hibike, Bike-Online), I simply sent an email to Ax Lightness and got a quick response from Nils who sent me both a carbon spring and a steel spring. I should have done that from the start!!!!!

I want the wheels to be "All Metal" so I removed the black anodizing from the Extralite rear hub and the M5 front hub as originally planned. I have always wanted an all silver wheelset.

I removed the Berk decal on the seatpost and all the Litespeed decals. This would look nice with an all metal magnesium wheelset with gumwalls. Notice the excess Powercordz on the rear caliper. I finally got some replacement springs so I can get this build rolling again.

I just love the Tune ZFS skewers. They are the lightest you can get. All my bikes have no color. Maybe I should add some color to this build? Which accent colors should I use?

How about purple? It reminds me of the mid nineties. Everyone had purple anodized parts. I am going to shamelessly borrow RyanH's look on his Ti builds....The cleanest Ti builds on this forum. I probably won't use all these purple parts, but just in case I bought a whole bunch of stuff from Toronto Cycles.

I left the cassette lockring off because it was too much purple. Same thing with the barrel adjuster and the end cap. Maybe this is too much purple as well? I can always change it back after applying the decals.

Lol!!! I will if I ever finish it and get chance to ride it. I still need Cryptic to bond the stem and handlebar for me.

Now you can ride to local market and buy salad. I have Ghisallo around 5 kg but useless to ride normaly.

Why is it useless. I have had builds done between 5-6kg and they were not useless. We have people on this board below 5kg doing huge mileage with zero issues.

@craciunptr - I am not using the Clavicula SE so this current configuration went up around 50 grams or so. But I removed maybe 5 grams worth of decals. So it is around 3.8kg right now. Still shooting for an 820 gram Magnesium wheelset build which will also add an additional 60 grams.

@anquetil - Thank you for the kind words :thumbup: It really motivates me to take the time to share updates on this build.
