    Frame Advice

    I have been reading these forums forever and searching for advice on a frame solution for my current lightweight single-speed build. I am looking for a 1kg frame in order to replace the Nashbar Nekkid (1.6kg) frame in my current build. Anyone have any advice on such a frame?

    Below is my current build (Currently 15.4lbs/7kg)

    Part Brand Grams

    Brakes Sram Apex 305
    Seat Post KCNC TI Pro Lite 140
    Handlebar Ravx Pace Haven 260
    Seat Selle Flite Gel Flow 225
    Stem Ravx Pace XRD 100
    Handlebar Tape SRAM Supercork 30
    Pedals Wellgo(WR-1) 218
    Brake Lever Cane Creek 80
    Chain Kmc(xl10) 200
    Headset Cane Creek 88

    You do realise that a 1Kg frame is mad light don't you? You will have to pay a large sum of cash to get this sort of frame and it won't affect your ride whatsoever for something like 500gr.

    If 1kg is not feasible...what about 1.1Kg? or 1.2kg?

    yeah, but we got to say she lasted longer than the driver! She at least hits 3 bumpers before she is knocked out.

    Supposedly the felt footprint has a 1082g carbon frame...according to the specs. If this is possible...I am sure there is a frame out there that I can purchase for a reasonable amount.

    Yeah, and the complete bike weighs 18.71 lbs.

    Is your 15 lb bike really too heavy? Just ride the damn thing.

    So if I've got an opportunity to get a "might be" langster frame with carbon fork for $70. Think it's worth it?
    It's not brake less, it's brake free.
