after long hours and countless experiments i have managed to create what i think is the cheapest per gram bike in the world:))
here are the specs:
focus cayo frame - 60 pounds
full carbon fork - 40 pounds
neco caron headset - 17 pounds
extralite the post - 15 pounds
kcnc seat collar - 10
sram force modded cranks - 30 pounds
stronglight 42 t chainring - 7 pounds
nest titanium pedals - 28 pounds
china 97 g stem - 20 pounds
easton cnt bars - 10 pounds
selle italia slr saddle - 20 pounds
ultremo r 1 tires - 30 pounds
ultra comp tubes 14 pounds
american classic front wheel - 30 pounds
american classic sprint rear rim with neon trials hub - 100 pounds
gussset half link chain - 30 pounds
460 pounds spent.
i think that is the rundown
i did cut down the riser bars
i want to go lighter so i will take the clear coat off and sand the beauty layer off as well as remove any mounts. maybe drill the bb as well. and advice is welcome.
I really want to lighten my single speed up, but I currently like how rugged it is and that I don't care to lock it up anywhere.
If I spent money on it I'd be concerned about it getting nicked!
Most normal bicycles have the "pedal-back" rear brake (Works only with intact chain), if chain brakes (or comes of), -the front brake can still stop You (save You).
-Good luck, riding in public with the missing brake/freewheel set-up.
Btw, You sure know where to get the components at low prices ! £60 for the frame...wow, and SRAM cranks £30(incl. BB ?) -I wish I could find these kinda bargains.. -Are they third-hand, or repaired items ?
-And the goal is easy reached.
The standard Torker cx Unicycle 2012 (no photo), is just 4.0Kg and costs £85 total.
-Now the minimalistic limits are : I pedal, I move, -and I stop... -Cycling !.......
