Hi Bencolem,

Benotti bikes (Benobikes) own AX Lightness company. You have the option of AX or Benotti logos on your frame.

Cheers,
Lig.

Looks great. White bar tape? Or maybe black bartape with white plugs? I love the white accents. I wouldn't peel any of your decals off.

White bar tape.... hmmm, that would be an overkill imo. But there are more qualified members in the field of bike aesthetics :)
White spacer it was a good move, like it.

Sweet build!
Agree with 1415chris, white bartape would be too much.
Sorry if i missed it but what is the saddle and what does it weigh?

Cheers Chaps.....

I am still pondering on the tape.... no deal really I might try white as it can easily be changed...

Regicycle - saddle is an AX Lightness Leaf and weighs around 76g and I find it very comfy as it flexes (but of course saddles are an individual thing...). I have these on all 3 of my bikes and 1 in a box ready for my 4th bike soon to arrive!!

I reckon tomorrow or Monday will be white tape day :D

Cheers,
Lig.

Hi Derek - I think the angle of the photo makes it look a bigger drop than it is - Saddle height is the same as my LOOK, bar height is about 7mm lower so might have to add another 5mm spacer under the stem, but will see after I have had it on the road..

White bar tape added and white stripes on the seatpost to mark seatpost height (for when it gets packed up for European adventures)!!

I think i will most likely change to black tape, but I like it for a change to my other black bike.....for now....

Cheers,
Lig.

I really like how you've marked up the seatpost height with the two white strips. That's probably the neatest height marking I've seen, might have to steal that idea you know

Thanks Derek, yeah I do this on all my bikes usually with black so it blends in... looks a lot better than a sharpie mark :) .
Its just Auto stripes, you get them off eBay for about £1 for 30 meters!!

Cheers,
Lig.
