    I like but better phots are needed. That coming from a guy that takes worse.

    Nice build, I'm looking forwards to some better photos. I don't like bold graphics on a bike, but it always seems to work with Cinelli.

    That seems light considering the components - have you weighed it or just added them up ?
    Used to lust after Cinelli's of that era - better photo's please.

    Looks very nice, but i'm a little sceptical about the 'actual' weight.

    Skewers - weight of 1 or both?
    Cables and outers?

    I reckon thats more like a 7.2 - 7.5 kg bike.

    Weighed it many times. Just weighed myself on the digital bathroom scales 67.9kg and then with the bike 74.7kg = 6.8kg, but only accurate to nearest 100g.

    However my local bike shop are going to weigh it for me on their proper bike scales so will post a picture of the weight afterwards to verify!

    Skewers 42g for the pair, no bottle cages as official manufacturer bike weights.

    Sorry about the picture quality - had problems with the up-loadable sizes!

    OK worked out how to resize the photos - so here's 3 which appears to be the maximum you can post. Rear of bike to come!

    Here's the rear - pictures taken chez moi in the Massif des Bauges, near Annecy and the route for stage 20 of the 2013 Tour de France.
  • Looks nice! I like some if the finishing touches like the red skewers. Great for adding some colour.

    Thanks Matt
    A pleasure to build over the last five years and a pleasure to ride in the mountains. Biggest pleasure though is that it only cost me 590€ to build taking into account buying parts on ebay UK and reselling the old parts here on ebay France where the prices are much higher.

    OK everyone, at long last I took my Cinelli to Culture Velo in Annecy and had it weighed on professional bike scales. Comes in at 6.84kg including pedals which equates to 6.66 kg bike shop, no pedals weight. Frankly chuffed to bits that I was only out by 40g on my estimate. Now just need to add 1.5kg of addition stuff and water, plus 65kg of me and ready to get riding!!

    That's lighter than my cervelo R3 with full super record/ 0g Ti brakes and 1350g wheels was. Bizarre.

    A full kilo less than my mates Cannondale super six Di2 that cost 4000€ - not bad for for a 590€ build :D
