after a long wait and collecting parts over the last 12-18 months or so, i have finally built my carbon fibre bike.

based around an oem carbon frame for china, total spent $2148, weighs 7.8kg and rides beautifully. the frame, forks, seat post and handlebars all came from the same supplier in china.

a few specs:

shimano ultegra sl groupset
fulcrum racing 3 alloy wheels
schwalbe ultremo r1 tyres (will have to be changed to something more durable)
nokon red annodised brake cable (gear cable did not arrive!)
ritchey bio max saddle
prologo bar tape

my mate aaron helped me build the bike, he builds them and resells them for a hobby, so it was very helpful learning from him and watching someone that has plenty of experience building bikes.

can’t wait to put a few kilometres on the bike, hopefully the weather will be good on the weekend. pics below.
