For the past 5 years I've been riding a Neilpryde Bura SL. That ended on April 4, when a tree branch took me out - into the front wheel, snapped the fork and destroyed the down tube (and separated my shoulder). I was starting to look for a new frame before that, this just sped up the timeline. I'm hoping to have it built up this weekend, when I have more than an hour at a clip to spend on it.

Just a couple of quick clips - looks like frame weight is under 700 g, fork is 322 g uncut (both lighter than my NP). Had some concerns about the frame's weight limit but after doing some research and reaching out to a good amount of people (and getting a great price), I decided to go for it.

More to come...

This is gonna be good! Are you recycling your salvageable components?

@4ibanez - Yes. That's everything. The front wheel will be rebuilt. As I disassembled I was weighing parts. Only thing that will change is the crankset. Clavicula classic to SE.

Looking good. It just dawned on me your accident was on my birthday.

Let’s see that build!

I was actually a little disappointed with the weight. This is with cable guides for internal routing in, rear derailleur hanger and plastic cable guide under the BB. I'm figuring without the internal stuff it comes in around 695 g, and I've noticed this scale comes in a bit heavier than my smaller, more precise scale, and the scales the USPS uses, so it may already be under 700 g.

I already have a student in the engineering class at the high school where I teach working up plugs for the derailleur cable holes for 3D printing (I'll be using etap). The ones supplied are metal, I want to see if I can lose a gram or two there for free.

Build is complete. 5169 g with the list. Does not include my Fly6 tailight camera nor the saddle bag. I managed to get a 31.5 mile ride in on it. First impressions are good, but I need more miles. Even better was getting out to ride after a little more than 2 weeks off the bike and my shoulder not being an issue.

I have a feeling I'm forgetting something on that list (besides the aforementioned). 11.4 lbs seems awfully light with clinchers. If you see it please let me know...

Here's the build list:

Nice, but you need a final all-in weight, total bike as ridden on the scale. That will tell you if you’ve forgotten anything in your list or not. Glad to hear you’re back on the road and the shoulder is recovering nicely.

Pedals. I forgot the pedals. Mavic Zxellium Ti - 162g for the pair, so 5339g.

Might have forgotten the seatpost clamp - I have to order a new one. The one from my old frame (10.5 g) won't fit and Wilier cheaped out with a heavy, 18 g one. That's 18 after I replaced the bolt with a ti one.

The difference in weight is definitely that mine isn't an etap frame. I can't complain about that when considering the price I paid.

Eh, when I look at some of the bikes posted with no saddle bag, no pump, no spare tube, no computer, tools, etc, I call BS. My last bike I didn't include the weight of the saddle bag/tailight either and I thought that one was getting closer to 13 lbs.

I also ride with clinchers as I often ride solo and do long distances, especially in the summer. It's more convenient. Right now I have my farsport/extralite wheels on there as the front wheel of my FSE/Carbon-Ti set is waiting to be rebuilt, that will also add about 40-50 g to the mix. I'm still shocked the bike stayed under 12 lbs. I guess going from the clavicula classic to the se helped, as well as the frame dropping over 50g, even the fork dropped 10 + grams.

I'm going to enjoy riding this one.
