It's from @SQUICCHI on the forum here. I don't think he has a website. You can send him a DM

New Alpitude computer mount. It doesn't save much weight but it looks pretty.
The bike is down to 6.14kg now.Image

it will be interesting to see what is the final weight on your bike! every 2-3 weeks a few grams are reduced!

Maybe some more grams saved if I decide to buy the new SRAM red when it comes out next month

I recommend it. It's been great. I haven't noticed any stiffness issues.(I weigh 65kg)

i also like the avian canary. you will need to also buy the sl8 canary stem shim to match the stem and sl8 frame if you get it.

Top looking bike, nice work. How are you finding the MTB SRAM chain with the Red groupset, in particular the front shifting? I tried a variety of non flattop chains with my SRAM Red group (though not the chain you're using), and gave up in the end as front shifting was only reliable with the Red chain.

0 issues so far. The new transmission XX SL chain is dimensionally identical to the AXS road chains.

I'd be very careful with that brake rotor. I just broke one while bedding in brake pads.

That's crazy. Thanks for the heads-up. How did it break?

Less than 1km of use. Just doing some heavy braking to bed in some new pads I fitted with the rotor.
