After a few days of waiting it's finally here. I'm just waiting for a braze on front derailleur and I should have this baby ready by Sunday. So excited! Ride on!
If this frame is good enough for Boonen and Bettini, then it's...way too much of a bike for me! ;D
Thanks for viewing! Save the planet, ride a bike!
Total weight so far is 14.74 lbs without the bartapes. Most parts came off of my Calfee. The following components are new with the frame: 2008 SWorks SL2 frameset with seatpost Easton EA90 stem and EC70 Wing bar (originally FSA cockpit, but I was too impatient ;D) Sram Force braze on front derailleur Sram PC-1090 chain Shimano Dura Ace 7800 casstte (12-25) Specialized Toupe saddle/bar tape (white) Specialized Rib Cage Pro H2O cages

Another great bike Pedro! Now I'm wondering how your garage looks like, with your current collection of bikes. Just curious, how do you store 'em all? A picture would be great, hehehe ;D
Hey thanks Michelle. My SS is in the shed with the Yeti 575 (well it used to be, I've since given that bike to my brother ;D); my SS CX bike is in the computer room; my fixie, Orbea Alma, SWorks Carbon Epic in my room; and the new SL2 is in the hallway. And frames all over the place ;D lol! I need to get organized!
Built and ready to go. Yesterday without tape and computer (magnet, bracket,sensor and etc), it weighed at 14.74 lbs--still illegal under UCI rule. Today with tape and computer bracket, magnet and sensor--w/o the computer itself), it weighed in at 14.96 lbs--still illegal under UCI rule. 15.03 lbs with everything--barely legal. The bike could weigh way less, but as it is, it's light enough. Save the planet, ride a bicycle!
Thanks for viewing. Ride on!

stealthwanderer: Ayan yung matagal ko na gusto itanong: 1 Hour ride, mabasa ng ulan o' mabasa ng pawis sa loob ng kapote. Baka kasi ako lang nageenjoy sa ulan kasi may paliguan pagdating sa trabaho, hahah.

anthrax76: sa ngayon, mag jacket lang ako kapag umuulan at mahangin. kasi masakit sa balat ang matulin na ulan tsaka malakas makababa ng core temperature ang wind chill.
Aug 10, 2019 22:17:32 GMT 8
anthrax76: pero kung normal na ulan, 'di naman mahangin, hanggang mabasa na lang ako ng ulan okey lang. although i minimize kung gano katagal ako exposed. anything more than an hour, medyo delikado.

konablack: gamit ko two-piece raincoat, dehins lang sya ideal kung may backpack ka

oniechan: altered poncho..dahil ng backpack..bawas ng haba sa likod at sa side..mas malamig compared sa 2-pc na raincoat....
Aug 13, 2019 11:27:45 GMT 8
anthrax76: yung poncho, ginagamit ko lang sa climb or kapag naglalakad. feeling ko saranggola ako kapag naka bike eh, ha ha.

anthrax76: ang weird kagabi, padyak ako pero kahit may headwind at crosswind, swabe lang. parang tailwind yung pakiramdam.

lefty: Na experience nyo na sir yung pagbaba mo ng mabilis sa tulay biglang may malakas na crosswind tapos umangat yung front wheel? Nangyari na sa kin once pagbaba ko ng Southpeak. Mga March yun last year, mahangin talaga around that time last year.
Aug 24, 2019 8:50:45 GMT 8
lefty: Umangat ng konti na parang tinulak ng konti pa-side. Buti na control ko at di ako sumemplang. Nangyayari ba talaga ito normally? First time ko naka-experience nun.
Aug 24, 2019 8:56:30 GMT 8
anthrax76: hmm...never pa naman umangat yung harap na gulong ko. i get pushed downwind pero never pa umangat.

stealthwanderer: Hello! Meron bang pumapasok around Greenhills? If so, saan kayo nagpapark ng bike?
Aug 27, 2019 17:54:27 GMT 8
anthrax76: @cf!!! uy kumusta na?
Aug 28, 2019 0:01:25 GMT 8
anthrax76: stealthwanderer, dati may parking ang bikes dun from firefly brigade, sa parking sa harap. pero ginawa na yata yun so dehins ko alam kung saan nalipat. try ko magtanong minsan kapag napasyal ako.
