@R3awak3n
Thanks!
The world stripes on the fork and seat stays is identical to Paolo Bettini's Limited Edition VXRS from 2015.
Have to agree that the stripes may not go well with some people

´╝áCaballero,
Unfortunately not, I'm always stuck here in Tokyo lol!

Here are pics of the complete build-up, pictures taken via mobile.

6.2kg with LW Fernwegs, Campy SR crankset, AX Orion brakes
5.41kg with LW Obies, THM SE with Extralite chainrings 53/39, AX Orion brakes.

Personal target was to build a sub 5.5kg complete bike without resorting to a Cannondale Evo, Cervelo RCA or AX Lightness Vial evo frameset/fork.

Not the lightest, but overall pretty decent (I think) for a 11 year old frameset.

Cheers

Another absolute gem. Love the paint (and the stripes!) Dude, every time I think I'm over lusting after bikes, you post one of yours and damn you I'm lusting again. Your taste is impeccable. Enjoy!

@thegunner,
The VXRS is definitely a keeper, it's been with me thru thick and thin since 2006 with plenty of memories

@Climb01742,
Thanks!
A custom steel from a local builder is currently in progress
