Looking good, and still dropping weight. Excellent.
Seeing that your saddle is pushed right forward a straight post would be good.
Darimo for instance. I have been talking to him about making me a straight post and if enough of us Urgestalt owners want one he will make a mould.
We could save about 110g easy, but as it's just me atm it's a no deal, unless I pay for the mould. ImageImage

Thank you! :)

Yeah, I can't get the saddle any further forward. :/ A straight seatpost would certainly fix that and it would also be good with a lighter clamping system. I like the looks of Darimo's loop system, and it would surely work on almost any tube profile, including the Urgestalt's oval shape.

Yes it certainly would. I have a Darimo loop post on the newer Urgestalt frame, its awesome. Now I do already have a straight post from Lightweight on my older model Urgestalt but they are so bloody heavy, well the clamping mechanism is anyway.
A Darimo post would certainly look good and drop a load of weight.
I have another Darimo post and stem coming for this new build so a post would finish the build off.
If you are interested send Alexia a message, maybe a few more and we could get one.

I have emailed Darimo and reported my interest in a seatpost for our Urgestalts. Let's hope they make one. :)

That's awesome. I'll speak to Alexia and get an update. I'm thinking Damia will want a few more orders though as the mould is €1000.

If a Darimo seapost could drop the weight down 110 grams, then my frame with hardware (frame + fork + derailleur hanger + headset + seatpost + seatclamp + bottom bracket) would go down from 1673 grams to 1563 grams, which would be almost identical (1568 grams) to my paintstripped Cervélo R3. - At this point I would gladly change over my better comnponents fitted on the Cervélo to the Urgestalt. :)

Probably could save a little more weight, I was being conservative. Our posts are about 135g the clamp about 67g.
I'm assuming the Darimo post will be around 80-90g.
Good idea changing over the components. Would be good to see how light you can get the Urgestalt.

Everyone is right, the frame looks tits with the Meilenstein. It’s a great looking build!

If you are ever looking for a clavicula SE (175mm) crankset mated to carbon Ti chainrings 53x39, I have one sitting in the closet that would lighten your build considerably

Yes your crank would look awesome on his build, and if I remember rightly your chainrings have been sanded to look like a matt finish. I admired them when you first posted them.

Yep had cicli corsa paint them matte clearcoat to match the claviculas. I'm afraid if i dont sell it, I will order a sarto frameset to match.

Well I would not advertise them for sale then and get the Sarto. Image
