good option, but giant geometry doesn't work very well for me, i'm looking at frame size with reach around 364-372, stack 515-530
Those are really short numbers. Can I ask how tall you are?
I'm 164 and I'm know what I want for new bike from my current bike.
at the moment I have canyon cf sl which have reach 378 ant stack 522, but i'm using stem 80mm and handelbar with reach 70.
For new bike I would like to have 90mm stem and most of light carom handelbars have reach around 75...

Seem to be a lot of De Rosa SK deals on at the moment, or Look 785 also
De Rosa SK is a nice bike, but frameset is quite havy...

Sounds like weight is particularly important to you, as is the budget, so IMO you'd be more likely to satisfy these criteria on a rim brake frame.Image

I already have rim brake:)
that's why I want go for new bike with disk brake, but I don't want a project which would cost around 4k Eu and bike would be 8kg...

My searches for a small 785 come up empty. Got a link?

A Colnago clx in a 45cm would work. Bike exchange still has some, but only a grey color left. The 105 complete bike is just under 2k. Sell off the parts for 300 or so.

I almost bought one, but disc brakes offer no advantage for a lightweight rider who never rides in the wet. Been riding mountain descents since 2003. Never lacked braking power.

Cheap and light with discs will be tough. I found a Willier Cento 10 with the stack and reach you want, but it won't make 7.5Kg with discs. https://www.merlincycles.com/wilier-cen ... 98987.html

The Giant TCR Advanced Pro might work. https://www.giant-bicycles.com/us/tcr-a ... c-frameset

I have a cheaply built Colnago C-RS with a frame and fork that weigh about the same as the Willier, but it's rim brake. It's got pricey Easton EC-90 bars, Zonda wheels, SMP Stratos saddle, FSA K-force post, Zipp aluminum stem and weighs 7.6Kg complete with speedplay pedals, carbon bottle cages and a really light computer. It weighs the same with Chorus 12 or SRAM Force. Chorus is a lot cheaper. Discs would make it more like 8Kg.

I'm 168cm, with a 73cm saddle height and use a 527mm stack and 383 reach with a 100mm stem, 80mm reach bars, no spacers and a -17 stem. Saddle to bar drop is about 10cm. If I used a -6 stem, I could go quite a bit shorter on stack.

Gotcha. Those reach and stack numbers are lower than most other companies XS so you might need to really look hard. An XS Cinelli Superstar has a reach of 373 and a stack of 509. The small has a reach of 398 and a stack of 522.

Ciclimatteo or whatever they’re called seem to have availability

Edit: Actually looks like it’s rim version

Fuji SL 1.1?

https://www.fujibikes.com/usa/bikes/roa ... -1-1-frame

That looks like a good deal and has the numbers he is looking for.

Also take a look at Edelrad. They usually have good discounts on top brand frames.

At 1.86m I can't help you with geometry unfortunately. Those numbers seem like a different planet to me.
Cervelo S3 - 7.35kg

The price is well within your budget at 1599EU

This isn't the most recent Addict RC Disc frame, but the old frame was still very good and can easily be built up to be less than 7.5KG. No integration means you can use whatever stem, seatpost, handlebar etc you want. I'm not sure about the campy compatibility though.

Edit: Maybe it won't work because the reach is a bit longer than you're looking for: 384mm for size 52.
Great Frameset
From which country do they shipping?
