All coments/ sugestions welcome
forget about the Negmass cranks unless you want to be a test dummy. go with fsa superlites on a frm or AC BB. stay away from ti chains, you can do just as good with the new campy 04 chain with hollow pins. if you want good looking brakes and are willing to wait months for them go with carbon if not go with cat claws, they work good and are just as light.
other than that i would say go campy - but if you like dura ace, then go for it.
Fork: Time Stiff, Post: Moots (nothing else)!
By the time the bike gets here I would like to drop 10-12kg off my 193cm (6'3") frame. So hopefully Stefan Schmolke and Axle at AX Lightness can build me parts that suit.
Moots and IF make Very nice stuff and I would consider the seatpost (Baring the weight penalty), but I have never a Ti frame and the Carbons are lighter - although they may be prettier than the composites (esp the Calfee). Scandium frames are lighter, but dont last as long.
Unfortunatly the FSA superlights dont yet come in 180mm
Keep the sugestions coming...
As a rider who loves a high quality steel frame I am hoping to have a project bike in this area (thinking a Sachs / Llewellyn/ Bohemian with DA 25th Anniversary / Shimano 100th Anniversary).
