Beautiful build, Fuchs! Wonderful work on all the custom bits, and the overall look is fantastic.

got out the order for an fiberlyte chainring (thought of making one myself, maybe later but right i think it will be much better if i just buy one)
And i even got out the order for the xx-light buttom bracket....so next week or so, the bike should be at an low 4,6kg :)

the last days, i made some test parts for the rear deralieur but there was nothing to show. get some more stuff for it today and next week, i have some days off from work, so maybe i ´ll have the time to build some parts...
was stripping the paint from the new zipp cranks and i´m almost done with this. right now they are at 301g but i think they will be under 299g when i´m finished with the paint.
i even got my new bottom bracket today. it looks quite light but will it work for ever?

i took the paint off the zipp arms but this time it was no fun at all...will do some more jobb on them later in winter. but the most weight is away and the cranks are down at 296g
i still wait for the fiberlyte ring to get the crankset under 480g but right now with the ct2 ring it is at 505g. and with this, the bike comes in at 4666g and should be around 30g less with the new ring :) (will get it in a week or so)

Wow. That's really impressive!
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

That is impressive since my Zipp Vuma's are 534 with two rings and BB. Are you only going to run one ring or two?

are your vumas that light? completly with everything? thought they had more than that....
i will just use one ring and will have around 475-480g in that way with the fiberlyte ring. with 2 fiberlyte rings it should be just over 500g i think.
later some time, i will buy an nora crankset and should save ca 50-70g with them. but until then, i have to save some money :(

Actually 533g but when I switched out the chainring bolts to allow the use of the Fibre-Lyte rings I gained a gram.

Cool. I love the Zipp300 cranks and think they are great when running standard sizing.

Bike looks great out there Fuchs! :D

Bet you could save a gram on 2 on the cranks by ditching the bolt spacers and shortening the chainring bolts :wink:
