Few days of pause from my second build..
Some of them skiing days, some of them post skiing Back Pain problems (hope it wont happend again as many years ago when i had herniated disk, result from MTB ing...)
Today i done a good clean to C60 Frameset (still cant believe it how much sand was everywhere), and do some weight measuring..
Before i continue, let's share some battle scares from 20500 km i have on this frameset....
Unfortunately, when i build it back in 2016, i installed, but let adjusting of FD to someone else (and Colnago chain catcher)... Result, dropped chain, and damaged paint in BB area. I used nail polish to cover it, so this is now battle scar (no structure paint, just scratched paint):
Lesson learned, so after that i take care about adjusting, and definetely ill put other chain catcher after discussion we had on that. Colnago chain catcher wil be just temporary.
NonCutted fork weight:
Cutted part of the stereer:
And comparation of cutted parts of stereer (longer is C60, shorter is from CAAD12 fork):
Seem that CAAD12 fork is a bit lighter (around 10 gm)
Now time for frame weight (bearings installed in headset, BB Cups pressed in the Frame, No Bottle Cage Bolts, No Cable Guide, but deral. hanger included, and No Seatpost collar):
And using different scale (one with Seatpost collar, one without):
And just to be able to compare to CAAD12 weight, weight of BB Cups (i have spare that i measured):
Bottle Cage bolts:
So CAAD12 frame was 1064 gm, but with Seatpost collar, Bottle Cage bolts, and deral hanger. The headset bearings and small headset cap was 53 gm so in total 1117 gm
C60 frame is 1194 gm+ headset spacers 2 gm - BB cups 38 gm+seatpost collar 25 gm = 1183 gm
So difference between C60 and CAAD12 is 66 gm
Interesting that BB30A cups are 60 gm, while BB86 version is 38, so 22 gm difference between them
Top Cap + bolt:
Tune Spacers (2 mm, 5 mm, 10mm, 15mm):
Lets continue with bottle cages (62 gm):
Those are heavy and if i compare to Aliexpress Carbon Cages i put on CAAD12 (18 gm per cage, 36 gm both), there is 26 gm weight difference (at least i know i can save 26 gm for cheap).
And Cable guide including some liners:
BTW, does cable guide have some orientation? (since is not simetrical).. Which side goes front, which rear?
