Didn't realize this frame's weight was so low. Pretty impressive when you think about it.

Looks like my wallet will be lighter very soon....

Hello,

Is there an 24mm adapter with Ceramic bearings to place a new Shimano 9000 crankset?

Thank You.

Damn, I'm in the market for a new frameset and I found an r5 vwd in my size at half-off still... only problem is it's like $1500 over budget. God must love teasing me :cry:

@ bicicleta - Good point. Frameset kinda just out of budget and a real treat. Really looking forward to the build over the next couple of months.

Hi, finally this case is closed, my campy bbright-adaptors were 68g so weight of my 54 frame came to 764g which is what i expected.
BTW i had to change cranks to rotor 3d+ since that campy adaptors does not work. My advice is that do not try campy cranks with bbright!

After sorting out the crank problem the bike has been absolutely joy to drive. I have done about 3000 km with it and i'm extremly happy for it's performance..
