What rims / wheels are those ? The scales suggest that they are pretty weighty ?!

They're WWC-R-88-23C

But I'm 105kg, so a gram here and there...

Can anyone speak to ICANs quality? Is there any retailer that carries their rebadged frames?

Ahh ... really deep rims! For your body build, reliability is definitely a far more important concern indeed.

Is there an open-mold version of the 3T Exploro Speed?

Total Newb to custom builds. Put 5k miles on my Cannondale Synapse Carbon (endurance), and I'm tired of sitting up there like a sail. Looking into building with chinese carbon, but have a problem

Have been browsing Dengfu and Workswell, but looks like they dont much in size 60/61. Ive been riding the Synapse in size 61. Between Dengfu, workswell, and whats on Velobuild will the 60/61 and XL sizes generaly have the same fit? Looks like Workswell doesnt have anything in 60/61 and Dengfu has limited options

Just built up this little guy with some parts I had laying around (cranks, hubs, cassette, pedals, BB, saddle, etc. Should be well under 16lbs once I swap the 130g butyl tubes for latex, and the SS spindles to Ti. Image

Great Setup! I want to build a 1x road bike. I'd love to ask a few questions!?

Brand?
Model?
Price?
Delivery time and cost?
What tyre width are you using there?
What is the tyre clearance like?
What chainring/cassette combo have you got there?
What's the "stem lenght"?

I know it's a lot of questions... Sorry!
