Unlike my previous post, this build is a no holds bar try at making an ultra-light bike. Although there could be other options for the frameset, I’ve decided to build upon a Scott Addict R1 frame, which weighs 790g. While the AX Alpha could be used in such a build, it’s not yet available and the frame itself is almost double the price of the Addict. The same goes for the Spin Gato. The Guru Photon usually weighs more than the Addict, depending on the size, from the reports that I’ve seen. It’s also a lot more expensive than the Addict R1.
Jason from Fairwheel Bikes put together this comprehensive review of 28 different hubs. I’m currently reading it right now and I always enjoy Jason’s thoughts on components.
As mentioned before, I’ve become a Velocite dealer. They don’t just make great frames, they also make some great, lightweight components. Some of these are extremely light. I’ve posted weights for some of these.
Here are some new photos that I took of the Velocite Millennium. Now before you comment on my riding position, I’d just like to mention that I had some back problems last month. That’s why the handlebars are a bit high. They’ll come down in a few weeks and I’ll have it cut down further, dropping a few more grams.
I’ve started working with a new European supplier. This means that I’ve got some great new prices on a bunch of new cycling gear, from frames, wheels to component groups.
