Light Weight Frame

edited August 2016 in Your road bikes
I'm looking at building a light weight climbing bike, I have a set of of Campagnolo Neutrons lve never used and I've recently acquired from a mate (very cheap) a full 2015 Chorus group set. I'm looking at a Deda carbon finishing kit now both Wiggle & CRC have good reductions on them but I'm not sure on a frame !

With all the reductions on 2016 frames about to start I thought I see if any one had seen anything I may have missed ?

    Some Deda Nerissimo frames on Ebay for reasonable money.
    And you probably should have posted this in buying advice :!: :wink:

    Look at my bit of purple thread. you can start with a really cheap frame of ebay stip the paint and pick your components carefully to get a 6kg bike or under. I could get mine down to under 6kg quite easily. the frame is 1484g.

    i would buy a chinese carbon frame cheaper than the deda and light. Many of these are down to 900g or so or lighter.

    You dont have to spend alot to get a light bike and there are lighter wheels than the neutrons although if you have them you might as well use them.

    Wouldn't qualify in the budget category but Paul Milnes has 3 Genesis Zero framesets on offer for just over £1k (S, M and L sizes)

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genesis-Zero- ... 6db0531986

    If you buy direct I'm sure you can negotiate a discount to reflect the absence of Ebay fees and/or get then to fit BB, seat clamp and other goodies

    Full spec details are here

    I've dealt with Paul Milnes in the past (bought 3 framesets from them over recent years) and can't fault them

    Kit im running isnt super light an I've managed a 7.5Kg build. Frame is a Hongfu SL066, Pretty sure if you nose online you could find the SL version which is lighter.
