I can be wrong, and have plenty of examples for that ;)

Lovely looking, really like there design. Seems quite weighty for that size which is a little dissapointing

weight per set of DT SWISS PRC 1400 SPLINE® 65 is claimed 1669 g without skewers ... on heavier side,
also inner tubes add something,
so already here is possible around 0,5 kg of weight cut,
plus something on pedals ...

everything is in purpose of aero so ... lightweight is not in first plan :mrgreen:

I thought it may have been the wheelset carrying the weight, nice build Though!

Have you been able to use it and if so how does it ride? Wheels stiff enough for the frame?
Also on the weight, what saddle do you have?

Loving this, but need to get half a kilo of it.

If doable I'd consider it as a main ride.

Stiff as "German panzer", for me, more than enough.

Why having tubes in tubeless tyres? it is a pretty heavy combination and you can easily save around 150g of rotational weight. With Time Pedals you can save 50g without necessity to buy the most expensive models with possibly flexy titanium spindles. Something on saddle, nicer bottle cages (chinese for 10 usd)... What is your plan with weight reduction? :)

hannawald - no plan with weight reduction :D
tubes because were already in, but you're so right ...
pedals will be Garmin Vector 3
saddle stays, it fits
bottle cages - we'll see

it's aero bike ... :thumbup:
