Yes Johnny rad, not legal , with future plans to get even more so!
Keeping my eyes open for a red exogram crankset, some lighter brakes,and maybe a lighter wheelset, but for now it's all about riding.
First impressions, comfortable, power transfers well, climbs well, tracks well, confidence inspiring stability.
I really do think this ALR is a hidden gem, and I think that a real world weight of 6.5kg is achievable
So I ended up with a wheelset built up using DCR Raceday hubs, 24 cx Ray spokes both wheels,front built with ryde pulse sprint rim , rear built with DCR own rim.
Total weight inc rim strips but without skewers = 1380g
They are a nice light but sturdy wheelset and a true as true could be, and suitable for my weight which can be 76kg in winter, and 72kg in summer
So my emonda ALR now tips the scales at 6.62 kg real world weight
They don't look unmatched you would have to look hard to spot the difference.
But they are a cracking wheel set, and keeping with 24 h front and rear they look very similar to the original bontrager wheels, so keeping the stealth idea, the bike looks like any other ALR , but is 2.2 kg lighter.
Are you sub 6.5kg, yet?
Plans for the crank?
Keeping my eyes open for a red exogram gxp crankset which would loose another lump off it.
But I don't think I'd get to sub 6.5kg with it.
Pretty happy with the weight savings on this project so that might be it for this , which is my first attempt to be honest.
But during the build up I kept weighing it and at 5.7 kg I got the feeling that a future project would have to be around that sort of weight.
So roll on the next projects.
