Built this one up again, haven't weighed it but it's been as low as 6.4kg in previous lives.

Other than the wheels which have a higher profile than what this frame would need IMHO your bike is a pure joy! One of the most beautiful modern steel frames.

How do you like the WTO’s?? Better than the Bora’s?

Ohhh yeah that's awesome! 8) Glad it's a keeper even if it's on and off - changed your mind from it being a 'old man's bike' ? :wink:

Very different as the WTO's are my only clinchers- running them tubeless with GP5K. They're good quality and feel fast but I might get rid of the graphics.

Is it just me, or did you get rid of the graphics on the rear derailleur? If so, are you able to share pics and maybe some advice on how you did it?
