Have not got the chance to weigh the whole bike. But i think it will be around 5.7kg. With Fulcrum Speed 40c clinchers.

The painted xs frame weighs 696 grams with hanger, without bottle cage bolts and seat clamp. And 274 grams for the cut fork.

wow, thats one of the nicest izalco maxs i have ever seen! not only the paintjob, although porportions, and the clean lines.

further-ciamillo micro sl, extralite stem, bontrager cage (or chinese copy?)-very smart choice of parts!

which bar is it? 3t superergo?

Good eyes on the bottle cage. yep, its chinese copy then sanded off the bontrager brand. It's cheap and it's light :D The bars are the old ec90SLX3. cut around 1cm at the ends. I really want to try the superergos and its perfect for this build but couldnt justify the price.

Thanks to this forum, i got a lot of tips on this build, the measurements and including which size to get. Most specially what compression ring to use for the STS cap :D And lucky to get one brand new on sale at a bike shop in singapore

I just ordered an old 2018-2019 Izalco Max di2 frame at Bike24, Color red, size 56 at only 1350€.
Will build it with CA Super Record eps 12v and Bora wheels.
I just wanted a very light bike.
I allreayd have an Sworks Tarmac sl6 disc and Venge.
Curious how the 'old' Izalco Max will compare in terms of stiffness...???

Love your builds! Here is mine, far from WW bike, but does the job perfect. I need to change wheels for something lighter at least. Those are around 1700 g.

Just received the frame.
800gr including derailleur hanger and 4 bottle cage screws.
Looking good to although you notice it's an "old fashioned" "round-tubing" "idonotcareaboutaero" type offrame.
A bit dissapointing it the rather large (heavy?) seatpostcollar and the heavier alloy headset topcaps...
Build will be:

Campagnolo Super Record EPS 12v
Deda Superleggera seatpost
Deda Zero100 alloy handlebar and stem
Selle Italia SLR kit carbonio flow
Rotor Aldhu crank with direct-mount 50-34 q-rings
C-bear bb
Wheels Campagnolo Bora WTO 33 clincher or Bora Ultra 35 clincher...in doubt...

Auch, thanks. That's bit off the budget. I'm looking for something cheaper.
I'm thinking about this:
https://ciclicorsa.com/shop/pmp-bike-sb ... -seatpost/ I can have it for around 100 euro. Real weight 185 g / 27,2mm / 400 mm. So not bad for the money and if I'am able to remove logos it could look very similar to yours!

Or do you have others recommendation to budget zero seatpost? 27,2mm (100 - 150 eur).. as black as possible or just some simple graphic

Btw. do you have more photos of your Izalco? Would love to see them!
