Where to start .....

I have an uncanny ability to build heavy bikes even from lightweight parts :oops:

As such I was still surprised when my DJab (Now sadly sold :( ) weighed 24+lbs.

Sooooo I saw that this frame had come up for sale and was in almost new condition. A deal was struck and I had 1083g frame .... surely a light build could be achieved ....... :o

I've built this with as little additional outlay as possible. I have used much of the build from the Djab, a splattering of ti bolts, carbon bits etc. I did have to source a new seatpost and I decided as its currently a 1x9 to go with a larger chainring.

Not ridden in anger yet as have been super busy but will be out on it soon .... fingers crossed.

I have a final bit of fettling to do then will weigh it out of interest. I would like it to be about 20lbs :?

:arrow: So pics .....

Mmmm Hot melt carbon :wink: :
