For me it will never die . I've doing this for nearly 24 years and will never stop . I ride all kinds of bikes and I build electric bikes too (I learned how to build the controllers and motors) . For me light bikes will always hold a place in my heart and that will never change .

Interesting build, could you please share the parts list?
Have you laced the wheelset up to a special rim or simply missed a few 'spokes' from the build?

The brake system looks quite special. 1 brake lever actuates two brake calipers? :)

I'm going to be taking pics soon when the weather gets better and then do a parts list . I can tell you quickly it has Tune Prince and Princess hubs, Darimo bar and stem, Extralite BB and headset, THM Clavicula cranks, Gelu saddle (with custom graphics I designed) and Aerolite pedals with custom carbon sleeves . I also made the carbon chainring for the cranks, yoke clamps for the saddle and some other parts for it too .

The wheelset is specially laced by myself . To reinforce the eyelets I added carbon kevlar which only added a few grams .

Regarding the brakes it uses a Trialtech splitter to one lever . At the moment pressure is a little weak at the front but I just need to keep bleeding and adjusting and eventually will be equal but they do stop very well with the ceramic discs .
