I have read a lot in this great forum, and I want to present my fall/winter/spring project for 2018/2019.

What I want: Campa 12 with Disc (-> why: owning a campa bike is on my lifetime todo list), and Disc because I like Disc and the brake performance of my current bike (Stevens Vuelta 2012) is not great.

Since I want to stay with Stevens, and the frame is rather affordable and I like the styling (not everybody sees that it is an expensive frame), the choice will be most definitely the Comet 2019. Unless, they change the looks from 2018 which I do not believe.

The other goal is to get a sub 7kg, so I am planning to buy Campa 12x Record, but will use the SR crank saving another 100g.

Handlebar is already bought, got a very good price on the 3T Ernova LTD Stealth handlebar.

Since this is my first custom bike project, I am happy for any pieces of advise.

That's alot of frame for the money.
It will probably turn out a nice build :D
I would ask, does it handle wider tires than 25mm?
I see the fork is 1 1/8 - 1 1/4. Usually forks are 1 1/2 when it's disc brake.
Bikes:

Ax Lightness Vial EVO Race (2018.12.21)

Paduano Racing Fidia (kind of shelved)
Open *UP* (2016.04.14)


Ex bike; Vial EVO D

They claim 28mm, I will stick to 25mm most probably anyway.

What just came to my attention: is it complicated/dangerous to dismount the hydraulic cable form the brake or the lever? The Ernova has integrated routing so this must be done.

Update: just found the official Campa Video, it seems easy with the correct tools.

Thanks.

So it is finished, weight will be slightly below 6,8kg including pedals and bottle cages :)
