Absolutely IN LOVE with this bike! New MSL35 wheels on Carbon Ti hubs, Berk Lupina 150mm saddle and installed the THM Power Meter Crankset. Weighing in at 5,98kg

One more goodie on its way which should make her sub 5,89kg

Do you get the THM crankset to handle shifting without issues talking chainline and chain drops?
Thinking since THM has 2mm less width talking chainline compared to Srams crank!

Surprisingly, I've not had any chain drops so far. I was very nervous that the shifting performance would be compromised, however I will say that the shifting is just as crisp and precise as the Sram Red w/Praxis rings!

I can totally understand your nervousness damaging that premium crank!
But you've managed!
Nice to "hear"

Got some new custom wheels. Will take some photos and share soon. The builder sent the wrong freehub installed, so waiting for that to arrive.

On this wheel, he had installed Stans rim tape which is already pretty light. Through some research and conversations with friends who have done this, I bought and installed Powder coating tape. Super light, yet thick at the same time. Is meant for high temps and works well. I saved an additional 25g switching from Stans to this.

Hi Bianchi10. Beaut bike BTW! Just had a question about the powder coating tape coz I’m considering doing this myself. When you put the tape... did you wrap it just once or twice?

Tremendous build there Bianchi10. I run a couple of Tarmac SL7s myself and often wondered if I’d missed a trick not considering the Aethos. I wonder……..

When left on for a season, the adhesive stuck to the rim. Took what felt like an hour rubbing the glue off.
