Originally bought as frame and a few bits, sourced most of the build via classifieds etc.
Real Design Ultrasphere Wheels were a great find, they come in at 1365g the pair.

Only a phone pic and its from the wrong side, but bike looked great in the sun during a cake stop!

    Frame is carbon, basic Cayo expert with Ultegra groupset comes in at 8.18kg.

    Cayo weighed on digital scales and for comparison my Trek cross bike is 20.5lbs and mtb 24.5lbs :)

    As others have said it's carbon, but it's also a really small frame. Despite some of the heavier bits like the Shimano stuff, there's an awful lot of lightweight/ww kit on their. Those wheels are pretty damn light too for clinchers.

    Quite an interesting build actually.
