    Picked tape up from the LBS and they have some adapters in stock so it's all good!

    Looks good, enjoy.
    What's a duotrap? Sounds like it should be plumbing related.

    It's a little integrated ant+ sensor which replaces the clunky looking Garmin version which usually sits on the chain stay.

    Thats surprisingly heavy considering the parts its built with.... Is the frame particularly heavy with the suspension joint things? Obviously discs will add a bit but even so.... Nice bike though.

    Thinking about it I weighed it with the saddle bag on, that's 500 grams. Time for some upgrades I think!

    Collected the Bontrager saddle today, no quibble exchange guarantee if it's not perfect so worth a punt. I've never been 100% with the Fizick.

    Yellow valve caps are also gone.

    Looks nice!

    Still surprised it's over 9kg, my steel framed Fratello is not much more than that (with the Zondas on).

    I am if I'm honest, the back end felt weighty when building it. The hubs are MTB spec though, Hope pro 4 so might be heavier than your standard road hub.

    I'll get the scales out again tonight...

    I'd rather have a bike that rides well than get hung up over the weight. My Kinesis was about 9.5kg when I built it, may be a bit less now with better tyres, seat post and lighter brakes. But the weight of the bike is the least of my problems and certainly isn't what's holding me back.
    Do Hope make road disc hubs? I thought they were the same as the MTB ones. Admittedly I don't look too closely as I do fancy building a fancy set of wheels.

    That's my opinion too, if the engine was a sleek design then I'd be spitting feathers at every added gram.

    I'm not sure if they make road specific hubs but as I'm on through axles the Hope Pro 4 fitted the bill perfectly and as a MTB rider too I love the clicky clicky hub noise :)

    My Heckler is sat on a set of Pro 2's.
