Thought I had kept you waiting long enough :)

As a lot of you know I have been playing around with various builds on this superb frame for a while now but I think I am nearly there..

The main goal of this bike for me was to get the total weigh sub 18lb with the logic fork , and with suspension forks a shade under 20lb , which I am very close too.. Ever item on the bike has been weighed and changed if needed for decreased weight , even down to the springs in the brakes..

To date, this has to be one of the best handling and sharpest bikes I have ever owned..

There will be very few changes on this now , , well apart from the brakes/levers/shifters and the BB :lol: :lol: , really pleased, as I can concentrate on other builds that are getting neglected :(

The paint is the next major thing , which will be addressed when I can get all the replacement decals, with a view to preserving this beautiful piece of craftsmanship..

Thanks Tom :) ,, the wait was worth it,,..

And again thanks to Bas and Dr S for making this dream become a reality.. :)



Purist's will want to look away now though.. :lol: :lol: :lol: ..Do I care...............NOPE......

More in a bit.. just thought I would tease you a little... :lol: :lol:

I do have a AX lightness seat and seatpost combo, but the seatpost is the wrong size, and TBH they are destined for the next project.. ;)

I like the seat though, and think the White works well.. :)

The AX Lightness is uber cool 8) Trying for a sub 17lb build on a new Scott Scale RC so I'm going for the Speedneedle(its got an integrated seatmast like my Spark)
The Ritchey looks fabulous by the way,hopefully will see it in the metal again later in the year :D
