I think the bike is very nice but i love the story behind it. We all go through our own journey to acheive in our minds the best bike we can aspire too and ok, we dont all have the sort of money you have for this build but its the dream and you have totally lived out yours.

Congratulations!!

Love it. I remember the earlier threads on this one.

Just off to remove a wheel from my ti-full-rigid-singlespeed to get it close to 17lbs

Very impressive build.
Fantastic attention to detail in saving weight, but still looks fabulous. Even with a set of winter/mud tyres, it would be amazingly light.

Well done!

I was disappointed not to see the weight of the pre-ride poo. Every ounce counts... :lol:
