Hello Weight Weenies! I write to you from Spain, it is not my first participation but I admit that I am not very participative, the language as you will see is an impediment for me. But since I know you are lovers of low weight and photos, here I leave a wide repertoire.
My goal is to leave it sub5 something that I hope to achieve with a tubular change. I purchased the frame second sale, its previous owner gave it a good coat of paint, I left it back in its original state based on sanding, reducing the weight considerably.
Sorry for my bad english!!

Great job with the frame. Looks even better on those LWs! You should be able to lose 80g easily. Extralite rings will save 30-40g. Those tubs look like Contis - I may be wrong... Some Veloflex extreme tubs should make up the difference to get you sub 5kg.

I'm interested in the Darimo post. I've been in contact with them about getting one. What's the length and weight? How long did it take to arrive (or did you order from a distributor)? Edit: I see you come from Valencia - the same place as Darimo - that's lucky!

Yes, Damià (Darimo) and I are friends, excellent person, has a manufacturing delay of 1 month but if it is urgent you can look at the stock in R2bike, Dream bikes .. etc. my seatpost is 27.2 / 300 and weight 74g.
Thanks for the comments guys!

Great job on an Awesome looking bike, great weight saving by stripping the paint. As said above changing the chain rings and tyres will see your bike below 5kg. Did you make a build list with weights, would be nice to see. !!

Why on earth would someone want to paint one of these? Makes no sense. You could lose the 80gm easy peasy

Well, with such a nice bike your issues with the English language are easily forgotten! I’m sure that with the tips you can get on it here, you can easily build a sub 5 kilo bike.

Your english is mighty fine sir.

I love there's many different carbon weave on the frame. May look uneven and even messy but i just love it!

Hi DeiviX,

Very nice ride. I too have just bought a Vial Evo Ultra and will be building it up for Spring....

Can you tell me how do the Corima pads perform with the LW's? Have you used these for long and why do you not use the Swissstop LW pads?

Also - How do you find the Claviculas? Does they make any noise? Is it plenty stiff enough or is there slight movement of the rings? I dont know whether to buy a set OR save and go for the SE?

Thanks,
Lig.

I have not detected any noise or oscillation with Clavicula, nor noises nor oscillations.
If you do not have the classic Clavicula buy the SE version.
The Corima pad I put them for less weight but yesterday I went back to Swissstop because they slow down much better than Corima.

Thanks DeiviX,

Yeah - I would stick with the Swissstop LW specific pads... as for the Clavicula, I would of course prefer the SE, but I can get the Classic for half the price so I am tempted??!!

Enjoy your ride!!

Carajo, se me salieron las lagrimas y el riñón izquierdo me bajo un par de centímetros viendo esto. Simplemente maravillosa. Me encanta también la combinación de color aqua con todo los negro y carbon desnudo. Con llantas mas ligeras le quitas mucho peso ya que las Continental son pesadas, pero son mucho mas resistentes a pinchazos que la Mallorca de otras mas ligeras. Es la razón por la que todas mis bicis las tienen ahora en vez de las Vittoria y Veloflex que usaba antes.

Como se compara y responde la bici con otras que has usado y cuales son esas otras?

Disfrutala!!! :thumbup:

Translation for the rest of the forum:

Blah blah blah....Awesome bike. Get lighter tires blah blah blah blah.....How does it compare to others you've had? blah blah blah...... :mrgreen: :beerchug:
