Taking most of the weight weenie parts off the Stinner and putting them on this. The Stinner is gonna get its own face lift as more of a training bike.
Frame weight without hanger, headset, bb cable guide, seat post collar, or rear brake cable guide
Frame hardware weight
Planning on stripping the clear coat and decals and recoating with a thin clear coat.
No real goal weight yet but I'll try to keep this updated as I'm building it.
Thanks! It's been fun trying to get the Stinner under 6kg but I've gone about as far as I feel comfortable going which got it to 6.12kg. It's still gonna be a pretty slick build. Gonna build it with power so I can train more efficiently.
This build is gonna be the dedicated weight weenie build. With everything I did to the Stinner now going on the Bura SL, mid 5kg will be a breeze. Hopefully shooting for sub 5kg.

clear coat and logos off the frame, still have to smooth out all of the sanding.
Parts are trickling in. I didn't have to order much since a lot of the parts are being salvaged from the Stinner. Seatpost, collar, bb and stem are all that were ordered.
The Fibrelyte stuff was ordered for the Stinner but this project seems a more fitting home for them.
Weights are pretty spot on with what was claimed, although the THM bb came in 11g over claimed. Either way, so far it's turning out pretty good and I'm having a good time.
I mostly liked these for the tool keg since I only really ever ride with one bottle. I normally throw my spare in a cut up bottle in my second cage because I hate things under my saddle. It trips me out, I don't know why, but it does. I still had to cut the threaded part off the keg to fit a tubular in there but it fits nicely, even with the provided sleeve and makes it easier to remove given the sleeve has a pull tab.
Anyway, actual weight for the studs with bolts is 7g for a set. Easily shave that down with an aluminum bolt swap. The bottle isn't amazing but it also doesn't suck. I figure once i get my replacement cages, I'll leave the studs on the seat tube for the spare keg and if I ever really need two bottles on a ride, I can toss the Fabric on the studs.
First ride with mine, over an admittedly rough country Lane and the bottle was ejected, smashed on the tarmac. Two other members of our group told me the same thing had happened to them too.
I contacted Fabric by email and never got a reply......they will see no more of my business.
Hope you fare better....
