After the spring propel I turned to a more commuter friendly material. Titanium. Did some time with it for part time courier work before switching to another job.
Almost current except for switching to a sparkly maroon/dark red saddle and 7900 cassette.
1x rival RD
Narrow wide 56t STONE chainring
Rear hub is HED and front is white industries on a 80mm Chinese rim
6700 front brakes and 9000 rear
Small frame
I’ll reweigh it when I find my luggage scale

A shoe pedal solution is also in the works involving flypedals. Also sorry for the SRAM Shimano mashup. Shimano’s clutch derailleurs weren’t straightforward enough for my liking. Ultegra crank is a spare

Found my luggage scale. Weight as pictured is a portly 9.19kg.
Diet includes
7900 cassette
Titanium skewers

Considering but unbought
Carbon rail saddle
9000 crank arms
Front 9000 brake
Pedals when shoes are finished


A shamal front and renn 575 I have lying around would drop me to around 8.5kg but that’s for something else maybe. Any other suggestions without swapping wheels?

The rear disc wheel makes total sense - keeps your skirt from getting caught in the spokes. :P
