that looks stunning , lot of work tho
got the weight's written down ,in the garage
will submit them later

the zaskar was 1640 grams or so but i have light forks and an aheadset
for it
the franck roman dale is a wee bit heavier and the forks are 100 grams
or so heavier and 1" threaded

need to get the other frames weighed will do that in a bit
i also have some peperonis coming so they will be lighter still i hope
so 1 1/8" headset wins in the stack up of stuff

Whats Autosol and where do you get it :D

When I get the CB its Nitromors for the hideous pink then polish. Dont think I'll drill anything on the frame but will try and keep weight down :wink:
