This build is an exaggeration build. 55 tooth chainring, super deep wheel, oversize pulleys, ect. So why not go deeper with the Reynolds RZR92s? Deeper by 7mm and much lighter. The Edco set weighed a crazy 2,294 grams. The Reynolds weigh 1440 grams. So a savings of 854 grams!! The weight with the blingalicious Recon Cassette drops me to
5.95 kg or 13.11 lbs. I wanted to be under 13 lbs so I am a failure.

Interesting about the Edco and Reynolds wheels are the rim shapes. They are almost identical in that they taper to a very thin edge towards the spokes. The RZR92s are hard to set up because the rim is 28mm wide. The front Tririg brake barely clears. Now to get under 13 lbs and still be somewhat aero I can throw on the 890 gram Lew Pro VT-1 wheels using the Edco 10-11 cassette and lockring. 5.19 kg or 11.44 lbs. Oh, and I get the Swril Lip Generator with these wheels.

RyanH what's up dude :D Below are the different configurations. I would have to say that the overkill version will be with the RZR92 wheels.

Looks awesome, but is your wife going to be able to turn that massive chainring? :wink:

Aesthetically, the Edcos match the Textreme better, but those RZRs are so bonkers it's awesome.

@rlpaul - I agree the Edcos look nicer. It is nice to have a clincher option but I was shocked at the weight. I believe the Edco uses a spread tow 9K carbon which look good with the Textreme Felt.

@Romanmoser - thanks :thumbup: One thing I need to change is the Tririg front brake with the F decal. It is ugly in my opinion. I will redo it in all black.
