I was already on the fence for a while, but you pushed me over.
As soon as they restock, I will pull the trigger.

I will probably carry over most parts from my Ultimate though.

Yes, it does look good. Attached a pic, though now it has a Dila and higher profile wheels.

Yours is stunning and nicely built. It has DM brakes, right? How do you feel about them? I am currently having one built with DM brakes, but I haven't ever tried them.
I ride my bike not only for trainings but also for commuting in the city and I haven't faced any problem yet. I'm satisfied with the response of brakes when I need them. Other than that, I experienced some long descents around Bergamo and the result was pretty satisfying again.

Very nice. I have this same bike in the team cream-colored paint job. Mech Force and Campy Neutrons. It boogies.
Sounds lovely!
Post some shots here! :)

Very Nice Congrats! :beer:

I have always like how Standert's bikes look both Alum & steel

I am a little surprised though by the weight especially as your looks like a smaller frame
Not that it has to be lighter & main thing is the ride but

Did you weigh the frame before building? Just curious
I see their spec states
Frame (size 54) 1435g, Fork 450g

Thanks
No, unfortunately not.
The size of the frame is 54.

My first plan was building it with the previous version of Sram Red mechanical groupset so it would be a lighter bike but then the red details on crankset annoyed me as I'd like to keep the attention on the frame itself. Thus I decided to build it with Sram Force eTap AXS.

I keep coming back to look at this. What's the ride like being an alloy frame?

I'm pretty satisfied.
I'm a hobby rider so I'm not racing or something but I've ridden many different bikes in last ten years, including every material.
I'd easily admit that this is one of the best aluminium frames I've ridden so far.
Its aggressive geometry makes you feel like pushing harder and harder, especially whilst you have your own rythm on the road.
I was afraid of feeling super uncomfortable -since I mostly ride my steel bikes- but the high-end carbon finishing kit and wheels didn't disappoint me! :)
Considering that the Standert Team actually ride the same frame, I'd say that the frame is even greater fit for the ones who rides competitively.
Also, Maurice Ballerstedt used to ride a Kreissäge :) https://www.instagram.com/p/B1bPjAMizaq/

I also have a Standert Kreissäge 2nd Cut in size 50 PC, 6.8kg on the dot with some room to improve. Coming from a carbon frame it's very similar in stiffness, however what I loved about this frame the most is that they tuned the geometry for shorter riders.

You mean the project compact thing, right?
Yes it's really making key difference both on performance and positioning.

Do you have a build list or a link to your build? For 6.8kg I am guessing its rim brake not disc.

It’s a smooth ride and a sharp steering and quick accelerating bike, racy geometry. Frame is very stiff but still compliant. I enjoy every time riding it.

Mine is a size 54 disc and I did my own build last June with mechanical Record 12 speed disc. For now I put the Fulcrum R3db wheels from my cx bike in and 28mm tubeless tires, looking out for a nice set of carbons. The Kreissäge is good competition for my Colnago C60 which has practically the same geo with a somewhat steeper headset angle, just a bit heavier but you hardly notice that here in NL.

In the process of sourcing some deeper handlebars, but this is pretty much how it looks.
It rides a lot like my old CAAD9 and SystemSix but a tad twitchier which is fine, because as I have added a bike or two over the years, for the Standert I really just wanted the lightness and simplicity of rim brakes and mech shifting for something I'd probably ride hard for a couple hours at best. Anything longer than that and I'm probably not on the roads and on my CX/gravel.

Nice with the classic pave tyres tough to find now. Not convinced on the blue saddle tho looks wise but sure your ass doesn't care about looks

Plain old Antares is best for my backside, and the "test" versions are cheap enough on eBay. If this was my best bike, it'd have a black saddle, but I've already cannibalized the DT Swiss Oxics that came with the bike for my Indy Fab, so this one is a bit of a mish mash. Which as you mentioned, matters not a bit once I start pedaling.
