Just acquired a frame from ebay and getting set to build it up. The frame is a repainted Olmo Superlight with Columbus Genius frame - 57cm seat tube and 56 cm top tube. I am 6ft with about a 31.5" inseam - 165lbish.
Here's a few pics of the frame:
My goal is to build a comfortable bike for long distance riding with adequate ability to go up steep hills. I am choosing components with light weight and aesthetically matching the frame as priority but want to keep about $1k usd budget but know I will go over.
Here's what I am planning so far. Let me know whether there are compatibility issues and whether some other part will work better in place of what I have planned.
Shifter - Shimano 6700 - Already purchased on ebay as of yesteday $270 shipped - 445grams
Crank - Shimano 7950 - Plan to find one on ebay for $450 shipped when available - 635 grams plus BB 90 grams - 725 grams
FD - Shimano 7800 - Plan to find one on ebay for about $40 shipped when available - 67 grams
RD - Shimano 7900 - Plan to find one on ebay for about $120 shipped when available - 166 grams
Brakes - Modolo Speedy - I got some spares which I think will look good on the bike but don't know whether I have compatibility or performance issues here -guessing 300 grams
Chain - Shimano 7900 - About $55 shipped via Amazon - 252 grams
Quill adapter - Deda Elementi - $16 shipped from PBK - 147 grams
Steer adapter - Thompson 1" -1'1-8" shim - $6 via Amazon - insignificant
Stem - Deda Zero Servizio Corse 110mm -8 degree - ebay for about $65 shipped - 107 grams
Handlebar - not sure either Deda or 3T - Want to stay under 250 grams and $100ish - Probably have to avoid carbon because I will install a Profile Design aero bar that is on my other bike right now - 250 grams
Pedal - Look Keo Cromo Blade 12nm - $190ish via ebay - 230 grams
Bar wrap - Deda carbon - $22ish - weight insignificant
Wheels, Cassette and tires - Ultegra 6700 wheel set, 7800 12-27 with Hutchinson Atom tubeless - spare set - 960 grams
I add this up to $1400 and 7539 grams or 16.62 lbs. Total weight is inclusive of the frame, fork and headset which is 5.5lbs or 2450 grams. Not bad for steel frame though busting my budget a bit.
Thanks for your help!
