Awesome bike Alex and the new project likes a winner already!

Its great to see you carried out you ambition of building a near carbonless sub 6 kg bike.

I love the tomassini as well. Would i be right in saying that it probably weighs double that of your project bike?

cheers

Sweet! And quite a respectable set of build weights for a 1450gr frame! Have they been confirmed on a scale? My RSL is 1450 as well but I'm not sure I'm going to be able to get it down to 6.6kg :grin:

Real nice looking bike.

I have/had a similar colour scheme in mind for my fixed gear bike. I really like that pure white.. i had thought about a few red highlights also, but contemplating all white with black. (quite opposite from my bmc)

That's a very nice stable, but the white one really stands out for me. Enjoy.

Nice. Very, very, very nice.

What modifications did you do? I see carbon pulleys, but can't tell if the back plate is carbon. Anything else?

Beware they slap on what seems like a hectoliter of clear on those cages. Took me a good long evening's worth of sanding to get mine down to bare unidirectional.

May I ask where the bolts are from? I would love to obtain a similar set also in black.

Actually the red rd has a carbon back plate exworks. All screws changed to black anodized Al ( note the adjustment screw ). The pulleys actually are not made out of carbon, but a special hardened PA66 plastic (with hybrid ceramic bearings, al covers, 9.9g the set).

who makes those pulleys? they look very nice indeed!!
