Just about to start a new build after my Supersix evo hm disc was written off last week when I was hit by a car. Both me and the bike didn't come off too well
Decided I wanted to simplify things with this build so I've gone with a Bowman frame, and mechanicial/rim brake groupset. Had to keep the build within a relatively tight budget as unfortunately my supersix wasn't insured. I am hoping to recover the costs from the drivers insurance but these things take time.
Anyway the build list thus far:
Frame Bowman Palace r 54cm Ltd
Fork Bowman Palace R
Headset Bowman x Token
seatpost clamp Bowman
Seatpost Hope tech Carbon 27.2x350 May change to Fizik Cyrano 00
Seat Fizik Aliante R1
Stem Fizik Cyrano R1
Bar Fizik Cyrano R3 40cm May change to Fizik Cyrano R1
Bartape Fizik Endurance SL
bottle cages and hardware TBC likely to be King cages ti
Outer Cables TBC likely to be Jagwire
Inner Cables Jagwire stainless
Brakes Ultegra R8000
Front derailleur Ultegra R8000
Rear derailleur Ultegra R8000 SS
Crankset Ultegra R8000 170mm
Bottom Bracket Ultegra R8000
Chainrings Ultegra R8000 52/36
Shifters Ultegra R8000
Cassette Ultegra R8000 11-30
Wheels: Mavic Ksyrium Pro carbon SL
Tires Pirelli Velo 25
Pedals Ultegra R8000
Wahoo computer mount TBC Likely raceware
Picutres and weights to follow. Hoping for the low 7's for the final weight.
Before I ordred the frame I spoke with a guy who has a Palace r with Hunt aero wide's and veloflex 25's. I've also seen someone running Knights with GP4000's in 25, another with Reynolds 58's and GP4000's in 25, and another one Roval CLX64's with Specialized turbo's in 26. Clearence is tight, but it's there, main issue appears to be installing/removing wheel with tyre inflated which won't really be an issue for me. Guess I'll find out soon enough and I'll update the thread.
In terms of the build I think I've decided that i'll be changing the bars to Fizik Cyrano R1, and the seat post to Cyrano 00. Also tempted to change the tyres to Corsa's as I think the gum wall will really suit the build, however puntcture resitance isn't the best and I've heard really good things about the Pirelli's.
Yes, that's the one. Obviously not my intention to ruin your joy of the incoming frame, more a reflection of the exact reason I haven't pulled the trigger yet.
On the Pirelli's I can warmly recommend these. Coming for a long love of Conti GP4000's, the Pirelli tires have really impressed me. They run a fraction less wide than comparatively sized Conti's (which run very wide), but with the same latex innertubes the difference in smoothness and road-feel (if there is such a thing ) of the Pirelli's is very positive.
