Build getting closer to final. Currently 7005g with pedals, missing bar tape, bottle cages, and Wahoo mount, which should come to 100-150g (guessing).

Planning to save about 110g with Ashima rotors and Carbon-Ti big chain ring. Chain ring bolts will be silver Carbon Ti for vanity :-). 7000g goal still seems doable!!

Thanks! Drop isn't actually that massive - the perspective makes it look bigger. About 13cm. Can't wait to try it out - we just got a bucket load of snow, so it'll have to wait.

Sick bike, but damn looks like you took those pics with a Sanyo flip phone :)

:lol: - yes, my phone has accumulated moisture over time from being in jersey pockets, etc. Need to change my phone soon and take proper photos.

Very pretty bike!

If you want to shave off another 70g, you might try an OMNI Racer cassette. All titanium.

To anyone else into this frame geometry, look into Diamondback's Haanjo 59 and Blue's Prosecco (L).

looks good, so simple and reserved, without any embellishment. :thumbup:

Thanks for the tip. What's the shift quality and durability like?

Already a discussion on this one: viewtopic.php?t=150284

If you're fine with the durability of Dura Ace cassettes (also mostly titanium), you'll be fine with the OR. I can't speak to shift quality, but various comments suggest it's also Shimano-caliber.

Nice choice on the Carbon Ti chainring IMO. Going to look crazy on there.

Killer bike btw. Nice and understated.

Also how tall are you?!

Next update: CarbonTi big chain ring and Ashima rotors bring us into the right territory.

Missing a Wahoo out front mount and milk in the tires, so will have to scrape a few more grams.

Having big issues with the CarbonTi big chain ring in combination with a small SRAM chain ring. Shifting is lousy, was fine with SRAM chain rings. I'm wondering if the teeth "synchronisation" between the small SRAM and big CarbonTi is bad. Anybody with experience out there?

Thanks

Finally some better pictures. 7070g ready to roll, with Wahoo holder. Took the beast for a first spin, but still have some teething problems - Quarq doesn't work and I need to fix something with the BB installation. Only a matter of weeks now till I finally get to ride it properly.
