My greenhouse plans aren't finalised so I'm not sure how much I need to raise from this build. In the meantime I got it ridable with what was to hand.
Thumbies are a pleasure to use, the brakes work a treat. Could use a longer stem.
Lots of places I could lose weight, tubes are 250g each, zero flex on the brakes probably even without the boosters so they could go, nearly 600g pedals, over 300g saddle.
As it stands it weighs approx 9.8kg/21.6 lbs.
