What do you guys think???
I will post some pics of my other bits soon (Colnago M10 / Cervelo S5VWD)
1) Changed the brake pads to Lightweight SwissStop; and
2) Changed the top headset assembly from the stock Cane Creek AER to Cane Creek 110 - same size. The AER is REALLY awful - either too stiff or very loose (never right). Spoke with the guys at Cervelo and they recommended this change - even though not technically an upgrade since the AER is lighter and more expensive - the bottom is the same on both the AER and the 110. The fake bearing on the AER just doesn't really work - a little too cute. Steering is 100% better now - normal.
That said - bike is 12lbs 3oz - gained about 20 grams with the new top headset assembly.
Now building my next bike - a BMC IMPEC (white/black) - this one will be a touring bike - built for MAX comfort - should end up a bit shy of 16lbs. Will post pics when done.
I switched the computer mount to a K-Egde, and the AER headset to a Cane Creek 110. Both of those changes cost me a few grams of weight gain - however, I changed the seatpost to a Schmolke TLO and that ws my final attempt at shaving weight. I may try Vittoria EVO CX tires next, which should bring the total weight down to about 11lbs 14-15oz. I would like the bike to be sub 12lbs when it is totally done.
Ride feels feather light - obviousy - and super stiff and responsive. I was getting a very annoying creak on each pedal stroke and greased where the crank attached to the axle. The THM M3's have a strange (easy) mounting system, and the left crank slips on to a grooved section at the end of the axle - I dont think the crank will slide off due to the grease becuase the recommended torque is pretty high for carbon. Its on there incredible tight and no more noise.
I have taken a few pictures of the finished bike with some close-ups below.
I'm alomost finished with my IMPEC and will post my aero bike soon as well.
