Answering your questions above the bike exceeds my expectations in all the matters, this is what I wanted for, a very well balanced performance bike which you can ride for countless hours. Very steady very responsive seems to be like even if i was not riding it will go straight in a descent without falling , unbelievable. It is inspiring a trust which I have never experienced before :up: .

As for the Weight came out at 7.800 kg exactly, but I have ordered a Darimo Seatpost(81 gr), a new pair of a climbing wheelset from Farsports(1035 gr) and Ciamillo Lekki 8 brakes(144 gr) and Aican Bungarus Bike Brake Housing Cable Kit
which will get the weight down to 7.12 hopefully. I was thinking about replacing also the QR with something more light currently i am using the DT Swiss RCS ti, but i found them to be very functional and well securing, I like something more lighter but i am afraid of losing the functionality over the weight loss. Reverting with updates.
Can you contribute to more liable suggestions to shed some weight without sacrificing safety and usability?

That seems like a fine weight all things considered & would not bother me at all to leave it at that.

After many years of riding & decades of logs I can say for myself it does not make very much difference if any at all for myself.
When I look back at my times over the years for various rides & looong climbs on bikes that weigh what yours does now & my lightest WW bike which were more like 6.1kg it is as I said...negligible. Then add in the fact that I have aged all those years & I would say it matter nothing at all in the long run.

As you said your bike is well balanced , responsive & inspires trust/confidence *that* is what matters :thumbup:

At the end of the day the beauty of cycling is in the cycling :beerchug:
A very good point there, have one on me :beerchug:

New pictures available
Also, I have changed the bow tie together with the screws in my pedals from steel to titanium from J&L along with the instalment of the mount from extralite.
Next step is changing the stock fork Expander, di2 Junction box to be installed in the handlebar, the chainring to be fitted from extralite and the saddle to put the Berk Lupina, oooph that's all
To be continued
