Your unique Lightweight Standard Gen-3 "Black Edition Special" Carbon tubulars are awesome.
So much better than the usual stealth wheels with decals removed.
I haven't seen them anywhere else. Anybody else?

I have a set of the clincher version sat here ready to go on my Baum Corretto next month! ;)

This is such a beautiful bike - I'm guessing all that paint isn't cheap but when it looks this good who cares massive congratulations. I need to stay away from the Baum website as there is no way I can afford this right now.


Its still as awesome as ever! I did he Challenge ride at the Tour Downunder and I'd say I had 200 comments over 3 days and countless neck snaps when I left it sitting outside cafes, etc. It rides like a dream! The paint is all included in the deal... It costs extra for the custom logo, but the guys are really good to even let me have it...

Thanks! Its as close to perfect as I could have hoped! Keep an eye out for my next installment to our garage... ;) The relentless pursuit of perfection!

They say all Corretto frames are guaranteed under 1200g... I never checked... it was never a weightweenie thing, I posted it on here for all to admire... the 6.6kg as you see it is about as light as I need (I have 5.7kg bike at my other house that bends and flexes under me...) and Baum wanted to build a bulletproof bike for me to be able to crank out 1700w+ without breaking anything...

I stumbled across them ages ago and thought "thats exactly what I want..." still to this day I am yet to see another set that werent mine (the Gulf Baum wore mine for its excursion to the Worlds I'm pretty sure... :oops: )

I have heard of one other set - in clinchers... they must be yours Rich? I want the clinchers too! For my trip OS... not sure I want to ride tubs on a riding holiday...

I cant wait to see your bike completed... I hear its going to be pretty out there!! I look forward to seeing the saddle...

Thanks for the kind words... I cant speak high enough of the work the Baum guys did!

The way you go about the whole build is so much fun and I cant recommend their work high enough... they don't smooth out their welds and I had an automotive engineer looking at it at the TDU who said "those welds are a work of art, so delicate and precise... this frame builder is amongst the most precise I have ever seen - even more than robots!"

Could well be my clincher black editions you've heard about - they were a special order and arrived a little over a week ago. Sooooo nice! The Veloflex Corsa clincher tyres arrived for them today so I'll fit those tonight I reckon, and of course I had to put the cassette on in preparation! Can't wait for the frame to arrive to get them mounted, but I think I have at least another month to wait. :|

I spoke with Jared about the paint and the saddle for mine last night - have to say I'm getting pretty damn excited too! I have to call Darren this evening (I'm in the UK so my Thursday night is Baum's Friday morning) to finalise the BB format, and then I think it's good to go...

Beautiful bike - I really like the geometry and tube sizes as well as the paint job. Is that the Pearl White paint finish? - it looks almost light grey in the lighting

Yeah - there are quite a few sets doing the rounds in Adelaide where the Australian distributor is based - the black on black scheme was apparently requested for the Australian market initially - now available through a number of LW distributors/shops in Europe that I have come across as a standard option.

Carbon-sports offer it as a cost option on their wheels now - initially it was a special edition for tubulars only, but I requested it for my new clinchers and they were happy to oblige.

It does look amazing - my Corretto is getting ever nearer so seeing them on TKM001's in the Baum studio shots has got me VERY excited! :P

That's not my understanding... I was going to get them off Jedi-Sports first where they came up as limited editions, exclusive to them... but knowing how "exclusive" Lightweight are, I went through Baum and they organised them through Bespoke... They initially weren't sure of them or if they could get them, but they said yes and got them here as first in the country - as used on the Corretto Di2 bike on their site at the Worlds...

When I first ordered them, I kept looking at all the people with blacked out bikes on new Standard 3s, thinking "Surely someone on here would get them and have them on their bike before me!" alas, the Gulf bike was the first time I saw them on here...

I watched The-dude's projects expecting him to have a set, but he has only just got a set...
