Done for today, I could do half of the fork and lost 7 grams... There‘s a lot more to come and Kudos to everyone who has done this on their own.

It's hard work getting paint off. Kudos to you!
What kind of vehicle takes a 5 bolt vented rotor that small?!

You're a precise observer ;) It's only a promotional merchandise, nothing to use.

Haha at the moment (off-season) too much. But in summer between 64 and 65kg :‘)

Finished the fork today, was an hour quicker for the second half ;)
Will do the high grit finish at the weekend and also start with the frame itself.

Weight dropped another 5 grams and it has still to be cut (unfortunately the clearcoat will increase the weight again :( )

you alternatively could use 303 aerospace protectant instead of clearcoat.

+1 for this. Keeps my naked carbon bike clean and protects against uv

Top- and headtube done. I cut myself in the hand at the beginning of the christmas holidays and can't resume the work until next week, unfortunately :(
But thanks for asking

Just goes to show if you don’t pay attention to the weight of each part, you can turn a sub 1kg frame/fork into a 7.58kg bike. That’s crazy.

I’m looking forward to seeing the frame and fork sanded, and the new build up
yup, it's like a plague. Since most people (not on WW) don't build up from a frameset and thus don't understand the weight of every single part. A conversion BB and a heavy expander plug erase the $2,000 extra spent for the fancy carbon :lol:


Love the Max and excited to see updates, I'm about to start a cayo disc build

Yesterday I bought the same bike, size 54. 7.800 grams including pedals. :shock: What a waste!

I'll take it apart soon, but I wanted to ride it a few times to be certain of the correct fit: stem length, Darimo seat post, etc.

I am really curious about the weight savings you'll get from sanding. Not sure if it is worth all the trouble.

Nice bike ;)
I think you would save even more grams by sanding it down. The heaviest part on my frame are the red parts, the black ones are only with clearcoat.
