Hi, everybody.

At first, thanks for this forum and for all members who share ideas about bike building :)
There are already so many black and light bikes, but i want achive esteticaly and riding satisfaction in priority of weight for example.

This pic is starting point(just for overal proportion of the bike with 30mm height rims and 28mm tyres).

More pics with weight etc at this album https://photos.app.goo.gl/dSfveFdQey36qk8e7

To be continued.

Vik61, thanks :)

I'm already has aero race bike viewtopic.php?f=3&t=152220&p=1646573#p1646573 and 60mm, 36mm wheelsets :)
This bike(Aethos) for riding in mountains, i think 30mm wheels much better for this purpose.
Btw, Farsports has very nice Black Friday deals, i ordered Feder 30 wheels with Extralite hubs.

Can you confirm that the gelu carbon fixing system will work with the alpinist seatpost? I'm considering the same.

Looking forward to seeing how this build turns out. I'm doing something similar with a blue 56cm Aethos Expert - not with the end goal of being super-weight weenie - and I'm appreciating some of your parts choices. I might go in a similar direction, especially on the wheels.

Why chinese powermeter? I think Quarq is much more accurate and fit Red cranks well

I found this hanger. Looks like Sigeyi TH1 but many times cheaper. Does anybody try it?
