Hello all, I have a new bicycle. Some of you who also check the classifieds here saw that I had an Izalco Max listed up. I WAS going to build that up, but I found this cool ass rare piece of history. I'm not sure how many of these were made, but probably not many? I bought the frameset and pretty much everything else was new. I honestly haven't ridden it yet but I'm about to head out soon. No crazy WW parts and I have an alloy frame down to around 6.3, not bad! Some of the weights are estimated because I lost my phone, but pretty they're pretty close to what I remember.

Nice looking bike!
Can the fork really be that light? EVNE specs says 350 grams full length.

If you calculate all those weights you get 6135,7g so something wrong. Atleast Enve 2.0 can't weight less than 200g, maybe 300g could be possible.

Such a bad-ass bike! Looks fantastic. Super short head tube.......paint looks great! Is that possibly a counterfeit Enve 2.0? I have seen one of those come through the shop that was outrageously light, but questionable if it could be safely ridden. That weight is very low for an Enve fork.

Whoops, 291g not 191g... No wonder you guys were going crazy over it. The uncut fork was 353g if anyone cares.

Ride review:

Holy shit this is by far the harshest frame I have ever been on. I have 24mm Turbo Cottons at 65/70 on 17mm internal rims and WOW. If I run over a grain of sand I could probably feel it. But... I sort of like that? I've never really had a frame this harsh and I sort of like the drastic difference between this and the super plush Stelbel. It is also very very stiff as a pedaling platform too, so its a fun ride. Me likey. I think my KCNC rear skewer shifted a little in a sprint, but by the time I stopped to fix it, it had corrected itself? I'm only ~57kg so thats sort of settling. Time will tell though, I have DT RWS skewers if needed.

Really great bike, as always!

Everytime I see such a build, I can't help but think that I'm doing something wrong with my 6.7kg bike on a 750gr frame...

This is such a rad build. My first race bike was one of these in red, super stiff. Funny enough I am back on an Allez Sprint now and it kind of reminds me of an ultra refined descendant.

How do you find the headset? Is it smooth or a little gritty feeling?

Sexy as F$&K. You need to also get the Zebra Skinsuit and Briko sunglasses.

I use AERII headsets on all my build as they save 20-30g. They are completely smooth.

I think I will go against being a pro kit wanker though...

I have a red one of these frames that will hang on my wall forever, maybe I'll pass it down to my soon one day. Sweet snag with the zebra paint job.
