Brand new build. Santa Cruz Stigmata @ 16.98lbs / 7.7kg. It's a great-riding bike.

Image

Santa Cruz Stigmata CC in 54cm
Shimano R685 Mechanical Hydro to R785 brakes
Dura Ace 9000 F/R Derailleurs
Ultegra 11/32 Cassette
ENVE post, stem, bars, and Garmin mount
ENVE M50 wheels built on DT Swiss 180 Ceramic Centerlock Hubs
IceTech Rotors - 160mm front / 140mm rear
Vittoria Open Pave 27mm (running on the road right now)
Shimano XTR Race pedals
Fi:zik Tundra 00 Saddle
Campagnolo CX11 36/46 Crankset
Lizard Skin 2.5mm tape

Easy weight loss:
Cut the post (it's LONG)
Cut the headtube

Expensive Weightloss:
Go tubular for CX wheels
Go Di2 (I prefer it anyway)
Lighter pedals (XTR == ~300g)
Life's too short to ride clinchers.

Current:
Parlee Z-Zero ISP
Santa Cruz Stigmata CC

Past:
Ridley X-Fire Disc

I agree. Though, it does allow a quick comparison on how the tcx frames have changed. :)

@elmar schrauth- nice bike, mate! I'm curious if you weighed the frame + fork before you built it up, as well as the weight of that wheelset. I would like to hear your opinions on the Tune hubs and how much upkeep they require...

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

Thanks Stormur.
How about BH RX team disc 2014:
-how much the frameset+fork's weight?
-is it capable to use 700x38c?

Frame is 1100g for L ( 56cm TT ) , fork 480g ( if memory serves well ). Somewhere I found 950g for size S... but not my measurement.

On front : no issues , rear... I don't think so. Max I rode was 35mm measured and space around was like on limit of "reasonable" to clear dirt.

Note : BH RX "dual" ( disc/canti : 2 dropouts ) has.. "weird" geometry. I bought Wilier because M was to small , L was to big for me. Frame has quite long reach with low head tube. @ my age and riding style : to racy, to agressive. Caad/ Supersix type of geometry if i have to compare to something. But on road some "detorietation" from perfect geo can be compensated, in CX surface will tell you immediately that something went wrong ;)

That was "minus". Pluses : extremely good build quality & accuracy. Same I found on Pina and Neilpryde only. No decals : everything is painted. Visible CF : nothing hidden : you can see layup of fiber ( big plus for me ) - and it's not "decorative". Easy cable routing ( cables, not housing ! ) . Last, not least : frame is real monocoque : molded in 1 piece, same fork ( they use some fancy tech for compression from inside layup ) .

Thanks for the detailed information.

So the right cyclo frame for ww is the BH rx team. Except for the addict cx 10 which is said to be lighter but I don't see the real weight post yet.
But for convinience IMHO the frame should have TA wheel for easier tire change. So it goes to addict cx 10 or Ridley X-Trail.

As for the wheel is it ok to use ZTR 29 Race Gold (1300ish) 135mm?

I recall seeing an alternative version of the TRP Hy/Rd recently but i didn't bookmark the link. They were lighter, cheaper and I believe that the reviews said they didn't have some of the set up complications that the Hy/Rd suffers from.
