Hello everyone,

Im a long time time ghostfag of the forum, Ive decided to register in order to instroduce myself & share my (1st) bike building project.
Main ideas are to motivate myself, share my successes, struggles, find some support, collect any advice etc...

Im a 30yo road cyclist from Paris area. I especially love riding uphill & enjoy long distance rides as well.

So, my project is to build a light climbing bike, without sacrificing a certain comfort & ease of use. I discovered the brand Winspace through the well-know hyper wheel and decided to try one of their frame model, the SLC 2.0 (Super Light Climber).

Hereby picture of the frame, it is a raw carbon finish with a flower pattern I find really elegant & poetic, I hope you'll like it as well !

Tks for your interest ! Don't hesitate if you have any quesion, I'll be happy to help you even though I won't be able to review the bike itself until its fully built. Which will take a certain time because I'll be in holidays in a few days.
This model is simply called SLC (for super light climber) model 2.0. This one is indeed a rim brake version, direct-mount rim brake to be more specific. You can find all bike infos such as geometry etc.. on winspace website.

Regarding the weight of the frame itself, I mesured it at 880grams for mine, which is a size 55 (520 in Winspace system).

Im starting the building easily the next two days until my departure in holidays, starting with the installation of the BB I got from Hambini. I chose a 24mm size in order to keep compatibility with Shimano equipments, even though I will probably go for a rotor crankset.

Looks good!

Can't wait to see it all built up.

Winspace are really getting some serious traction this year as a market leader in high end product that's priced fairly.

Hey geoffrois, did you get this fully built? Just wondered what your impressions of the frame were as I'm looking to order one. Also, how's the paint scheme in real life? Torn between this and the plain black.

Hi dear, cant answer for the frame it self as I still didnt ride it, I only heard good feedback though. Regarding paint scheme I really like it personnaly, as well as the raw carbon effect which gives the frame a very unique furry or cloudy look. I attach close up pics to give you an idea. Hope it helps.

So... Its been a while, really sorry about that.
I didn't want to rush at all but I could have posted some updates for sure.
Anyway,I still plan to have the bike ready for this spring,
Here's how it looks atm, I still have to fix fork & front brake, add the chain, adjust derailleurs & brakes settings, set protective & handlebar tapes, adjust it to my measurements etc...
