the most exciting topic ...it felt deserted since the Pro topic was gone, but now YEAA :shock:
it's no wonder this technology is from german engineers -it gave us AMG .Porsche..any plans to massmarket the DIY2-if hopefully Shimano won't find out and buys you out :wink: ...
btw-beside getting my updates from here-WW i i also read Tour magazine -yes is in german but it's the best -have you been contacted for a test ?

Some new stuff from germany. :wink:

The bar is a mortop from http://www.speedwareshop.de. Also available in UD. My one weighs 90 grams with coat. I think without coating 85g. So the stem only weighs 58g.

To the top ::

What's new with these carbon tinkerers? I followed this post religiously and then forgot completely about it. (sorry if repost)

This thread is absolutely amazing. The frame is soooo light.

By far the most impressive thread I've seen here!

Norbert could compete with Lightweight/AX Lightness/THM if he got into production.

Leichtbau-Anarchisten-parts are way better than THM, LW etc. :P
No, just kidding, we just love to build some own stuff, some of the parts got really nice over the time, others are not that fabulous to be sold. Everyone has its specials, and the way how to work is really different. Norberthdss some great and very unconventional ideas and just builds it to see if or how it works. Philipp (fuchspk) is about the same. I'm calculating and doing much engineering, but sometimes 'forget' to produce the stuff I thought of. And Sebastian (coparni) and Michael (charliemike) are somewhere in between, coparni with much emphasis on functionality (and only that :-D), charliemike with an obsession for great smooth and shiny finish. So there's always a lot of fun in the German HCBPLAS (handmade carbon bike parts Leichtbau-Anarchisten scene). :mrgreen:

Has any progress been made on this front? I first conceived of this capability 41 years ago, but did not have the engineering capability to execute it.

That Carbon axle for the Obermayer rearwheel, how much weight does it save over the stock alloy one? and how much does it cost? :)
