Well, it is impressive, but it's a size 50, so (if accurate) difficult to attain otherwise. I guess that when the frame is quite heavy, downsizing brings a lot of weight savings..

Nice! The orange fade against the white is a nice touch. Do you have any side profile pictures?

Thank you for the notices.
The weight can seem very light but we tried to gather a maximum on all the parts.
Titanium visserie, centre pedal titanium, disk alu ceramic, etc.
For the color design that it does not please, but the depiction in reality allows to see the reflections of the pearly white

Wait, those are Al rotors with ceramic coating? Who's the maker and what pads are you using? How well does it brake?

87g 160mm rotor, 20g steel-backed pads
Not as light as I though, you can drop at least 50-60g with Ashima rotors and Al-backed pads if you decide to. But the looks are cool :thumbup:

Weight to verify in 66grs + 20grs centerlock adapter or 46grs of gained compared with the disk Dura-Ace.
Of more the braking is really very successful

This comment put me the doubt on the truthfulness of my weighing. Thus I redid that this with a park tool. result 7,260kg that this is more in agreement with the weight given by Trek to an equivalent model in size 56. It remains all the same very light

Well yes, with tubulars one could achieve (maybe) an UCI-illegal aero disc bike.. (Unless you have tubulars already but I don't think those wheels are for tubs)

You certainly can in a smaller size. All I did was swap wheels and cassette and my Madone (rim brakes) is under 6.8 with close to no effort put in.
