I wouldn't try extralite hubs because i've not heard the best comments about them from people using them. You should bear in mind that i'm using disk brakes so maybe (??) it would be too risky to use so little spokes(i'm using 32 spoke wheels now).I'm 1.85m and i weigh 83 kg so i guess you agree i'm not a light rider .As for the tires i'm willing to try lighter tires (veloflex extreme are 450 grams per pair) but my main priority is reliability.
Tune prince/princess are quite tempting though.
And yes, it's the character I meant. It is no part of your Boy in particular, just when viewed as a whole this no longer looks like a Bad Boy to me. I think it's weeniesm gone too far. The fork, the beautiful delicate stem, the silver chainrings, golden nuts ... don't belong...for me.
It is obvious a lot of thought and care went into your build. Are you happy with it? That's the most important about it. When you look at it, you should think: AWESOME! You should be driven to park it somewhere and just observe its good looks from different angles. If it does that for you, then you did right.
I just couldn't resist commenting 'cause I feel so strongly about Bad Boys and there aren't many to see. I feel that when Bad Boy looks and light weight clash, the former should prevail... That said, my current road bike is 5.8 kg, so...
I wish I could explain myself better, English language is not my strong suit.
Again thank you very much for your answer!
A stock bad boy is a nice piece of design, but it will always be a cafe racer bike. It doesn't need the weenie parts to be cool.
Big points for originality though!
Just a question, if you're weenie enough to go with schmolke parts, why do you leave on those awfull gear index displays?

And you can call me Macktastik Honey Pete Kicks, thank you.
As for the gear displays if i take them off how will the shifters stand on the flatbar?And how much weight am i going to lose?Is ti worth it?
For the shifting cables i thought of power cortz, what do you think?
I'm doing similar to an orange gringo frame set but I drew the line at carbon tub rims!
I bet she flies through traffic and that surely makes her a badboy?
