Kinesis T2 Singlespeed Project (Aiming for sub 18lbs)

Postby Kinetic-UK » Sun Jan 30, 2011 4:34 am

Hi all, making myself a Kinesis T2 budget build, so far I have:

Image
Easton Flat Bars,Wellgo 964 Pedals,SRAM Singlespeed Chain

Image
DMR Simple Tension Seeker.

Image
Tektro Brake Levers and Cove Seat Clamp.

Image

Image
Kinesis 7075 Aluminium Trainer Fork (600'ish grams)

Image
Sportourer Comfort Seat.




Here is my build plan:

Someone who owns a T2 on Roadbike review.com siad their weighs 21lbs so mine with out none of the below should weigh in at 17-19lbs (I hope!)

And at 21lb including a rack, mudguards, a triple chainset, 2 bottle cages and heavy Michelin Axial Carbon tyres, it's light enough for most users.



I will keep the thread updated with my build and get my shop to weigh it when it's built....aplologies in advance but I do not have scales at home so can't weight the part's to see how much they weigh :(
