The new fleet
#1
After a lot of headaches and patience I finally have the new fleet together!  I'm over the moon with them and am gutted that I'll have to wait until after Christmas to ride them.  But such is life and in the meantime I can look at them longingly while I pedal on the turbo trainer  Big Grin

Whyte E120
SID RCT3 120mm / 15mm forks
FSA K-Force Light chainset (double)
Hope Pro 3 / Stans ZTR 355 wheels
Formula RX brakeset, 160mm rotors
XT drivetrain
Easton Monkeylite carbon bars
Controltech carbon seatpost (yes, still stuck)!

Current build is sub 26lb with heavy tyres /tubes but summer race setup will come in at a shade over 24.5lbs.  This has become know to Tasha as her bike over the last year or so which I used as an excuse to spend more money on it!

Meta 55 carbon
Float RL 150mm / 15mm forks
Truativ Stylo chainset with chain device and bash
Hope Pro 2 / Stans ZTR 355 wheels
Formula RX brakeset, 180mm rotors
XT / SLX drivetrain
FSA Gravity 710mm bars
Joplin 4 dropper post (thanks Buzz)

Weighs in at 28.5lb which I’m very happy with considering it is a more rugged build than bikes I’ve owned previously.  Feels lovely just riding it outside the house so I absolutely cannot wait to ride it properly!!

Very very jealous of the Meta dude! Looks lovely, I love the green on black. Goof weight too. Good luck with the painful wait until you can ride it properly Wink

Nice. I would do a similar thread but the rate I change bikes it would be pointless

Very nice indeed. Out of interest is thats a measured weight of the Whyte or a add up of the components etc  Undecided

I would say 26 is probably about right looking at the spec and comparing it to my similar travel thing which I have weighed properly
