Only downside is it looks a bit "wanky" where the crownrace fits and meet the HT.

As the frame uses an integrated headset the area where the crown race sits is a little proud. Doesn't flow :(

That said who cares its fapping light!


I had the same problem. A Chris King solved the problem.

So quick update:

As it stands in the pics its tad under 18lb.

Fork and a wheel change have been the biggest contributors.

Pics (whilst rubbish) make the fork look better than it is. Its wonderfully finished but as mentioned above the HT/Crown interface isn't great!

Just picked up one of these too (110g saving over the Flite!):

Image

Sub 17lbs then I'll stop :twisted:

Upgrades to come ......

Polished M952 cranks & Ultegra BB - should shave off a few grams :facepalm:

Just had a quick scan back through the thread, and didn't notice details of the new wheels?

Nice build BTW. Trimming the steerer will save a few gramme or two :wink:

Regards
