5912g motivation a.k.a complete Ridley Helium

Missing two endcaps for the brake wires and will change the silver ones on gearwires for red. But except that it’s finished just like it should be. The plan was to build a classy bike with no special weightweenieparts. It didn’t went all perfect but I’m the one who I am 😉 So today my Engage Gavial brakes got their b-t-p brake shoes mounted:

182g for a pair of brakes instead of old Super Record at 286g. Will be even lighter when I’m changing brake pads from yellow Swiss Stop to Reynolds that seemed really good 🙂

The things on the bike that helps me prove I’m not just building light is my 256g Deda Newton shallow handlebar, that I changed to Rotor Q-Rings and have just a Chorus 12-25 cassette 😉

So now just waiting for my wound to heal so I can ride again, never wanted to ride a bike like now

new rims: AX-Lightness SRT CC

What can I say, living the dream sometimes. Is there any brand cooler than AX-Lightness in cyclingparts? Found a pair of rims on my place at work today from a friend. 229g and 231g it says on them, 463g is shown here:

 

Nice compare to the XTR965 rim we had at work today, was 428g for one rim.

Got stickers for them too, never used, haven’t decided if I’m gonna put them on or not. And for hubs, always dreamt about Tune Cannonball SL and Prince with it’s carbon fibre flanges but they come at a huge cost. Like 680€ for a pair and 281g, Kong and Cannonball is around 430€ and 297g. What do you say? Will build it up with Sapim Superspoke.
