Inspired by the likes of 4Ibanez and Godzuki26 (and me always wanting a sub 5 kilo bike) I started my sub 5 kilo bike project about one year ago. It begun with an Olympia 849 frame and eTap, which then became a Evo Hi-Mod, which then dropped the eTap in favour of mechanical Red 22. The complete story is too long (i.e. boring) and saw a THM Clavicula, Corima 32mm S+ and EE calipers going through the build until it got to its end game.

This post will be slightly different in the sense it is an “un-build” post. I finished the bike, had 12 months of pictures, had never posted about. Took it apart over the weekend, weighed and photographed everything, will post here in reverse order. The only thing which doesn’t really work is the picture of the crumpled up bar tape sat on the scale.

The frame is currently on eBay (shameless plug: London pick-up only ending this Sunday, 13 May 2018). All the other nice bits and bobs, including a bunch of THM bottom brackets which were just installed but have no mileage, will go up for sale here on the sales thread.

Well, enough of the small talk. Without further ado, here is my sub-5 kilo project.

Image
So there it is: a red box with bike bits.

Image
Image
Super Six Evo Hi-Mod frame, size 58, no derailleur hanger nor cable guide, FSA BB installed weighing in at 77 grams with all the bits. I literally bought 4 different PF30 BBs, kept the lightest model (the one that could have the plastic bit in the middle removed) and returned the rest. Frame only sans the BB would be 776.6, respectable for a size 58 in my books.

Full disclosure: I was going to post pictures of all the following bits but oh my would that be boring. If someone wants any of these posted, just ask for them!
Derailleur hanger, 9.4 grams.
Cable guide, 4.2 grams.
Rear tub, Tufo Elite 160, 158.1 grams.

Image
Rear wheel, 20mm carbon tubular, bitex shimano hub, 579.3 grams.

Image
Omni TI hub, 11-25, shimano, 114.0 grams with lock ring.

Extralite steerer bung, 5.9 grams.
Headset compression ring, 3.3 grams.
FSA SL ACB 1 1/4 45x45 bottom headset bearing, 16.8 grams.
FSA SL ACB 1 1/8 45x45 bottom headset bearing, 13.7 grams.

Image
Uncut fork with crown race, 324.8.

Front tub, Tufo Elite 160, 160.0 grams.

Image
Front wheel, 20mm carbon tubular, bitex hub, 441.4 grams.

Tune rear Skyline skewer, 10.0 grams.
Tune front Skyline skewer, 8.2 grams.

Low profile FSA super six headset dust cover, 4.1 grams.
10mm Mt. Zoom spacer, 2.9 grams.

Image
Schmolke 42cm bars, 172.2 grams.

Image
Extralite Hyperstem, 110mm, 7 degress, 82.3 grams.

Image
Red 22 shifters, 286.1 grams.

Aican Bungarus rear shifter inner, 13.2 grams.
Rear shifter outer, a mix of Tune MTB old school brake cables with the outer pulled out and Aican bunagrus outers, 13.5 grams.
Front brake outer, regular shimano brake cable, 9.4 grams.
Front shifter outer, Aican Bungarus, 9.2 grams.
Aican Bungarus front shifter inner, 8.3 grams.
Rear brake outer, a mix of Tune MTB old school brake cables with the outer pulled out and Aican bunagrus outers, 8.2 grams.
Rear brake inner, forgot to photograph, but wrote it down: 14.4 grams.

Image
Tesa fabric tape. A lot easier to weigh when reversing the process! 15.8 grams.

Bar end plugs that come with Deda Traforato tape, 4.5 grams.

Image
Tesa tape installed!

Image
Red 22 rear derailleur, 143.0 grams.
SRAM chain catcher, 8.0 grams.

Image
Red 22 front derailleur, 75.1 grams.

Image
Red 22 BB30 exogram crankset, 170mm, with that grey plastic spacer thing, 355.4 grams.
4 praxis bolts and that weird long bolt from behing the crank arm, 10.5 grams.

Image
Extralite Octaramp 50-34 teeth, 96.4 grams.

Image
Corima pads, 12.6 grams.

Image
Planet X CNC calipers, pad holders and all nuts and bolts, 177.7 grams.

KMC X11SL chain cut for a 50-34, 11-28 system, 219.2 grams.
Mt. Zoom seatpost clamp, 6.2 grams.

Image
Saevid Alien saddle, 81.1 grams.

Image
Woodman Carbon seatpost, 27.2mm, cut down a bit, no setback, 103.8 grams

And all that bunch of pictures and weights equate to this (in terms of showroom weight, so no pedals or cages, and the fork never got cut so I don’t have the top spacers and top cap to balance that)

Image
4.650 kilos, showroom weight.

Adding a cage and pedals:

Image
Tune cage, 10.5 grams.
Cage bolts, 1.4 grams.
Plastic blips, 0.5 grams.



Image

Look Keo Max Ti pedals, 184.9 grams.

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
And that’s that, complete bike at 4.850 grams. The one caveat would be “You need to glue the tyres, dude”. A very valid one, so as for what I know that would make it roughly 4.890 grams.

If this was as boring to read as it was to type, my apologies :lol: :lol: :lol: ! It was a greatly entertaining project which guided the best portion of one year of bike bits shopping. Well, done and dusted now, over to the next project (whatever that may be)!

Here’s a screenshot of the excel table for this bike also:

That’s that, everyone. Hope this helps someone. Live long and prosper, Weight Weenies.

Don't know what's up with the pictures that aren't playing ball. Will check out what's going on later in the week when I upload a screenshot of this bike's spreadsheet.

Saw the frame on eBay and was intrigued when reading it was part of a sub5 build. Good work.

When other builds share same parts as mine, a warm reassuring feeling well up in my chest. What's the budget of this build, did you reuse some parts from the spares bin or manage to find a bunch of good deals? Recently, an acquaintance asked me if a ~5kg road bike can be built for about USD4000, the question keeps bugging me ever since.

You should've kept it all and rode the hell out of it!

Valid point, 4ibanez! Problem is I'm too much of a sucker for projects and there are a few other bikes around, including the new work horse I'm hitting with the weight weenie stick. I really should get a few other posts up for the other bikes...
