I like your build. The grey/silver accents on the frame look smart.

And thanks for posting the weight of that crank. I may get one as it will save me ~100g over my old style S900 setup.

Sorry, I overlooked this post on my phone. Thanks for the compliments and so far I'd definitely recommend the crank setup! At first I was dead set on replacing it with RED, but the more I thought about the versatility of it, then knowing the weight was within 20-30g, I decided against it... at least until I get the urge for NEW red.


I have a Hollowgram SL on the way that I can't use...

Are you getting "jeopardy theme music" in the back of your head waiting for carbon goodies like I am?


I am now, thanks :|


...don't taunt me with the hollowgram

nice bike, i really like the new felts.

fork-weights often are incorrect, the same with my isaac (claimed something like 330 gramm, real about 400!)

thats, why i am thinking about a 3t rigida team or ltd fork-in the hope, that this brands weight-information is proper.
sorry vor mai bed englisch!

The bike descends like a dream though and the front end inspires a lot of confidence. If that costs me 50g in the fork I'll take it. :)

of course, 50, or 100, or 300 gramm less wont make you faster. its just for settling ones mind, more a
question of taking pleasure in consumption than a sportive necessity. this hardly needs mentioning. :wink:

Agreed! I have to say that so far I'm having as much fun modifying and tweaking little bits as I have riding the bike... which is a potentially dangerous fascination.

Through some digging/reading last night I got a bit fascinated with the idea of a fork with better aero properties - which would also open the door to potentially get something lighter. The thing is though, this fork seems relatively "bladed" and is much flatter than the fork on my Tarmac, for example... then there's finding a fork that would match :|

My hope is that with some carbon wheels I'll get under the 6.8kg mark and hopefully that will slow my fascination with lightening for awhile... at least until I can replenish some funds :)

Antares Braided showed up today

And the bike isn't super clean - but it's not raining so I figured I'd take a few photos

How can your bike be so classy looking, but you still have your Christmas lights up? Those are like 2 polar opposites.

You'll have to bring that bike back into the shop when I'm out of zombie mode so I can check out the saddle.

Current weight?

I live in a duplex owned by the neighbors - the lights are theirs... I'm not pleased about it.

I'm about 172... oh, you mean the bike. I'll have to bring it into the shop when you're out of zombie mode to find out ;)

I'd like to wait until we have some carbon goodness to throw on it though because I know it's over 6.8kg right now and that just won't do!

Oh, and we need veloplugs.

What size are our holes?

I'll grab new bulk pricing on veloplugs between stages of consciousness and eating peoples hearts out.

Well your hole is giant from what I hear.

We need red plugs.



So opinion time; kill the wheel graphics or leave them?

The Rav X are 28g each IIRC and they were $40 shipped for the pair :wink:

Leave the "grffix". It's way more hardcore. I think the wheels would look a bit cheap if you peeled the stickers.

Change something on your MTB? Your F3 changes are half-way finished.
