Do you think I shoul lop a bit off or send it back saying its a bit heavy. Its a xl frame ffs. It's not going to be light. The weight is as pictured too, i.e not bare.

I think us 190cm+ people on the forum should cop a break.

Our bikes are always going to come in heavier, especially spending the same kind of money.

We aren’t going to get the eye catching weights that some of the more average sized people are especially with an Ultegra build! Alas we do the best we can.

My complaining is now over 😆

Some progress today. Rear wheel built. Yes it's one of mine. 712g with an extralite hub. New brake track so I'll see if this is an improvement. Sapim CX ray spokes and the straight pull hub is 129g. The rim weighed 460g. It is 45mm deep and 26mm wide. Image

Love the frame, and as a taller bloke myself I can't wait to see how it turns out. Nice looking rim, too!

Internal width is 18.2mm. 250C tg temp resins in the brake track. I will have to see how it performs on a long decent. Steel mold are used and the logos are not transfers, it is part of the surface finish of the rim and is slightly recessed. I have not seen this on any other rim yet. The manufacturer does this for me. My other carbon rims have the same logo style. This pic better shows what I mean. Looks like my camera lens needs a clean.

Campagnolo chorus 12-27t cassette and lockring us 261g.

I think those rims look quite nice but the crossed spoke front is odd to me. Looking forward to the finished build.

its extralites lightest front hub and there spoke length chart was wrong. 272mm SP spokes are needed not the 274mm the chart suggested and I ordered. A bit late after the cut and rolled.

That looks awesome! Great choice of components. A lovely change from the constant cannondale evo builds of the past year.
