I started this thread in the wrong forum so have just moved it :oops:
I always wanted to build a superlight rigid klein and funds where never available.........until now.So far I have ;
Klein attitude framset in linear blue(medium 1404grams)
carbon rigid fork (558 grams)
manitou mars carbon cl (1170grams)
Spinergy rev x (1780grams pair)
Hope ti skewers(69 grams)
Maxis semi slick 1,5 tyres(780 grams pair)
mmmmicrotech full carbon stem (99grams with ti bolts) :shock:
fsa carbon riser(157 grams)
Chris king no threadset(117grams)
Nokon union jack cables (76 grams)
Xtr m970 front mech(126grams)
Xtr m970 rear mech(199grams)
Dura ace 7700 9 speed in titanium(saves me 102 grams over the xtr!!)
Xtr m960 9 speed shifters(218 grams)
Hope ceramic bb(109grams)
F.s.a red white and blue hollow chromo(192grams)(58gms lighter than fizik gobi ! so I swapped it)
Hope bolt seat clamp(19 grams)
Ritchey carbon pro seatpost (187 grams trimmed and with ti bolts)
xtr m959 titanium axle spd
Fsa team issue carbon chainset(575 grams)
KCNC vs (180gms)Avid black op research levers (?)
kmc ti gold 9sl chain (176grams now! a saving of nearly 80grams due to dura ace cassette)
Ritchey true grips (60 grams)
And all bolts will be titanium or aluminium.
This should be v.light I was hoping for under 17,5 lbs but realistically under 19lbs should be easy. :D
I think I could get under 17.5lbs if I really try and put myself in the poorhouse :lol: :lol: :lol:

You can loose more weight. Buy ControlTech ti bolt race skewers 29 grams, And Exustar E-PM28Ti MTB Pedals are not only lighter but better built than Crank bros pedals

£44.95 lovely skewer. But very delicate. Don't over tighten. I lost an ounce compared to my old hex skewers.
Once your a weight weenie then it's time to re-mortgage. :oops: :lol:

The Exuster pedal are excellent like spd but lighter 8)
