2018 team bike. It's a custom nakagawa I've shown before. Raced at top level here in Japan.
Great feeling to out climb, out sprint, break away and win on a lugged steel frame with 1" fork when everyone else is on full carbon aero machines ....

Lugged Columbus spirit/spirit for track tubes (stiff!) frame
Columbus max 1" fork (stiffer!)
Custom Steelman 120mm -8deg stem 31.8 (Ti bolt kit) still weighs 249g !!!!!
Deda Newton shallow 42 (will change to Deda presa)
King nts - (changed to record thread less)
Campy carbon top cap
2015+ super record groupset
Power 2 max campagnolo powermeter 170x53/39t
Wr compositi seat post
Bontrager serano rxl saddle
Speedplay zero pedals, Ti spindles etc...
Fizik tape
SRAM 1190 11-28 cassette
Record chain
Fulcrum racing speed 35xlr
Bolt on skewers
Schwalbe one pro 22 tires


Weighs 7660g as shown with p2m

With superleggero 120mm stem and regular Ti super record 5arm cranks is 7359

With my Columbus minimal custom finished its at 7010g

Pretty light for fully lugged steel frame / fork / stem which can lose weight again at the saddle/seatpost/brakes and still be fully functional.

I hope you like it !!

That fork

Sweet ride! I’ve set some of my best KOMs on a Tomassini Tecno, beauty.

amazing build....really like the white on seat tube and seat post.

Did u weigh the frame before building? 7010gm for lugged frame/carbon fork is very impressive weight considering u don't have a lot of WW parts (w/exception of seat post, pedals)...which I would estimate ur lugged Spirit frame is in the sub 1400 gr that possible?
