FS: BH Ultralight 56cm/M - 12lb roadbike with pedals

I just built this up a few weeks ago as a weight weenie project that came out better than I thought. Goal was 13.5lbs fully built but this built up to 12.8lbs with pedals and no boutique parts.

- Size is M - 56cm
- SRAM Red 22
- FSA KForce light carbon crankset
- SRAM Red 11sp chain
- SRAM Red brakeset
- Easton EC90 SLX wheelset
- Continental 700cx19 tires
- 110mm Deda Superleggero stem
- 42cm Easton EC90 carbon drop bars
- Selle San Marco Aspide Superleggera saddle
- Deda Carbon seatpost

$2800

That is impressive. 12.8 and not a single dura ace component on that list. How does it ride?

I thought a Deda stem only worked with Deda bars?

Who told you that?


Weighing in on the Ultralight -- I had one a couple years ago, and it was friggin' awesome. If I didn't already have a Bura SL, there's no way I would've sold it -- the BH has a super solid, intuitive ride, and climbs and descends as well as anything I've ever ridden. I put both the Ultralight and the Bura SL up for sale, and let the universe decide which I would keep. The BH sold.
Somebody should buy this sweet baby right now.

Red 22 mechanical is the weight weenie group
Dura Ace is too heavy

Deda measure differently for marketing 31.7 to 31.8 there is no difference and Deda works with everything else

Very cool.

Just think how light it will be when you trim the rear derailleur cable!

What's the interesting-looking gray bike behind the Ultralight?

That's a Schwinn 4 one one. A kick around type of bike. Front integrated basket holds one 6 pack. Great for runs to the liquor store!!!

I'll let you know soon as I still haven't had a chance to get it out for a ride. Picking it up moving around is wild though as it really is featherweight compared to the other rigs (19lb steel Battaglin, 17lb carbon BH G6, 18lb titanium Litespeed, 18lb aluminum Wilier)

LOL I figured someone would catch that -- so yeah I'll have to update to <12.79lb road bike> once I trim the FD, RD and brake cables or shoot will it be a wash once add the end caps.

Hey thanks -- now I need to get this out for a ride. We don't have many climbs or descents here in Southern NJ so the 2% grade on my routes are all that I'll experience.

I also have BH G6 pro https://photos.app.goo.gl/8jtv9EsnXmJonRFg8 that I built years ago and has ride characteristics you described with your UL.

Come on now, you live in a town with High Hill Road in it; they don’t get any bigger!
