I see what you mean, but no it hasn't. I rechecked it out this morning and it's just the photo angle. If it was covered in a clear coat and the epxoy a little smoother it wouldn't look that way. But I'm pleased with how it rides and Weeracers efforts on it

Thanks Derek, I've done 5000km+ on mine no issues
I guess there's worse hobbies than making a bike light? Right?

Wow. Thanks! Wasn't sure what sort of reaction the bike would get from some of the elder statespeople on the board who have seen all manner of awesomeness over the years, so that comment is greatly appreciated! :D

I have plans for the new year for it. The obvious weight saving is the crank area. It's a heavyish crankset. Ideally I'd like something that will work with BB86 without too much mucking around with adaptors. THM M3 is out of my reach financially and no one brings them into New Zealand. If I bought it myself the customs charges would be fairly big. The idea of a non branded Lightning is appealing. But also I'm thinking of the 2013 Campag SR or Record 52/36 combination.

Or I could save up and wait for a Wert crankset once available - along with a stem - that could be the ultimate for me, and then I'd be pretty happy!!!

A little easier to get to such an impressive weight given the size of the bike!
Nice build
(I think it's just me, but for some reason small bikes just don't do it for me...guess I can't imagine myself riding them!)

I small so bike fit is important. I'm only 5'6 and weigh 69kg so it's a perfect match for me.

Also liking this.. How are those pedals holding up?

Suddenly got a bit interested in building a pair like that.

I just had them rejigged a bit by theremery, replaced the spacers between the plates with carbon filler - which added a bit of additional weight, maybe a couple of grams per side. Thinking of replacing the aluminium bearing housing with delrin or something else as I actually ripped a chunk out of one of them the other day clipping out!

In the process of a small refit out on this so once done will post pictures. Bike is current 5.62kg hoping to drop it down 300gm with refit

Great post. I've always wanted a sub 14b bike. Sure, I know lots of guys around here have those - but it's more about fun, and I love numbers. So I've ordered every single part, and they will slowly start arriving tomorrow, and for the next month.

Your post makes me determined to weigh every single part as it arrives, and document it. Once it's done I'll give it the final weigh in - and if it comes in on target, great! If it's too heavy, then I'll be combing through this forum, and your post - for more inspiration :)

Thanks for taking the time to post all the parts and weights when you did....
