what issues did the Sram Red front derailleur have?
I have two of the previous R3's, a 2008 in white & a 2010 in black, red & white. They are possibly the best all round bikes I've used. Seeing yours is making me think about a new one already!
New brakes (Ciamillo Negative G - NERD Limited edition), I decided to upgrade the planet X CNC to these mainly because I like the look, they are slightly heavier but I'm sure they will perform a lot better. An Extralite fork expander as the one with the bike was a bonded in type and quite heavy. I've also treated myself to a Giro Ionos as the helmet I had was quite old and looking a little out of date.
Extralite expander 7g

New Helmet vs Old
jaeyson77 - The frame is a 54.
I'm hoping to build the bike this weekend (if all goes well) - full pictures to follow (using the DSLR rather than the current poor Iphone ones)
3D+ Chainset 621g
Some pictures of the bike 'dry' assembled to give me an idea of the finished look....
Some small changes as well I have a new saddle Selle Italia SLR Carbonio (129g) Veloflex Corsa tyres and Latex inner tubes (this combination has taken the wheels and tyre weight to 2050g just over 150g saving from the set-up on the wheels.
I'm also waiting for my titanium spindles to turn up for the speedplay pedals.
About the scale shot, is that without bearings and spacers?
