Got this frame set recently as I've always liked the look the Carbon / Ti mixed bikes........

And as I recived her, once on display at Mellow Johnny's, the build sheet says she's a stock 54 with and ENVE 2.0 fork instead of the Seven 5e, I never really like the look of the curved Seven fork anyway. The beefy 1" stays are nice and shapley, all welds are very clean, no scratches to be found, its like she was never used ........

The 54 frame came in at 1178g with the Chris King head set, I latter removed the Chris King head set and it was 90g, so that puts the frame at 1088g ........

Enve 2.0 1 1/8" fork, it still could be trimed a bit and sanded or I could install my Enve 1.0 ?? (Enve 1.0 is 280g?)

One of the goals I had for this project was to lower the stack so I installed a Extralite UltraTop / UltraBottem Headset. The UltraTop dropped it about 10mm vs the CK, then I used a Deda Superleggero Stem 120 -8 stem that has a 34mm stack. The 2 together droped it about 16mm.

Yes they are relly nice and the carbon tubes are very interesting to watch as they change in the lighting

The frame came with this 7 seat post clamp that I dont really like the looks of it

Image

So I used this J&L clamp I had laying around

Berk Lupina Saddle - I have 2 of these now and love them

Unknow cheep ebay 27.2 seat post in 3K and clamp that I am using for now. I plan to change to 31.6 UD to match the rest of the tubes better (If my odd ball plan works that is)

Durring mock up, and the decided not to go with a -12 stem

Image

With the CK headset and taller stack -10 stem

And here is a rather crapy pix of how she sites right now at 6.32kg. I plan to ride some and get to know her, then decide if I want to throw more WW parts at it.

That frame is pretty close to perfection. Definitely give it a proper photo shoot!
