Hello again :)
Yes one year later but i still have my Bike - it was just not used so much the last year. Some trainings and some vacations but nothing big.
And then the Winter was here again....
But last week i could go out on the Streets with the Bike for the first time this Year and had a great ride :)

after a loong loong break of not being in the workshop i started with my rear derailleur
now i´ve got the cageplates and pulleys and some parts around thesse.

cageplates+pulleys+spacers+one pulleybolt weighs in at 8,8g together (every part on that picture without the big part on the top)
will see how the complete derailleur will come out but it will be really light :D

I had some more Time in the Workshop today.
Made the new Chainguard ready. The Goal was to get the new one lighter, better looking and the fitment a bit better.
The new one weighs 3,4g and saves 7,4g to the old one


still in progress...

weighs 3,4g to be more exact

I love the do-it-yourself philosophy.
Much respect!
the problem? could be the nut behind the handlebars.

oh sorry to hear! hope you'll be on the mend again soon.

yes I was curious about how you fixed it to the frame, I thought maybe you had somehow bolted it on

Made an List of the Bike how it looks like right now
But like always - there are many parts i will do my work on soon.

- FSA Headset (rebuild - Corparni Aheadcap) = 52g

- Coparni Prototype Stem (-8degree - 100mm) = 64g

- Schmolke TLO Bar (400mm - Ergo - 144g) + Fuchs Brakelevers (70g - "one piece" with the Bar) = 214g

- BTP Shifter (tuned - nylon parts) = 3g

- Velox Tressorex Cotton Bartape (just from the Levers to the stem - sewn in place) = 17g

- Lightweight Ventoux Backwheel (tuned with DT190 parts) = 588g

- Fuchs Skewers = 32g

- Vittoria Corsa Evo CS Tires = ca 500g ( did not have them on the Scale as these are just until Dugast Silk comes on the Bike)

- Fuchs Rear Derailleur (mixed with Fuchs-parts and tuned Tiso parts + Extralite Pulleys) = 98g

Made two more parts for the derailleur. It is the "Backplate" and "Frontplate"
They weigh 4g together, the Backplate (the Y-like) will even hold the spring and the wire (in the same way like the THM Brakes hold the Power Cordz wire)
Around 25g will the derailleur be i guess

the new parts
