    New Cinco

    So I just finished my wifes new Cinco about a week ago.

    I have a little tweaking to do. Probably go with lighter bars and some different grips.

    Tried to go with a reliable but somewhat light build for longer riding.

    ok, edited the pics as well.

    +1! What compnents are on it and do you know the finished weight? I am pretty sure I see some of that nice CK bling going on in the wheels and headset.

    Have not weighed it but hope to get it on a scale soon.

    I was hoping to keep it under 25lbs.

    The tires are the only thing on the bike that I would think would be considered a real lightweight item though.

    Probably will change the bars to carbon to drop a little weight as well as pick up a lighter cassette.

    Build list.

    16.5 Cinco Frame
    Moots Seatpost and Stem
    Sram XX brakes
    Sram X9 shifters
    Sram XO derailler
    Sram 990 Cassette
    Truvativ Noir Cranks
    Chris King Bottom Bracket - pink
    Chris King Headset - pink
    Chris King Hubs laced with silver DT revolutions to Stans 355 rims.
    Fox F120 RLC 15mm
    Maxxis Aspen 2.1 tires

    I had the stans rims stripped, polished, and clear-coated to match the polished rear end of the bike and match the silver spokes.

    Here is a pic of the wheels before they went on the bike.

    Classy build. The wheels look awesome! Dont stress too much about the weight. The build looks solid.

    Great job.

    Very nice build. While silver wheels aren't my thing I do hav e to say that they look really nice here. The funny thing is that the weight you are shooting for is what my 20" YBB is at. Of course I am a clyde that can be anywhere up to 240 kitted out for riding. Your wife is a very lucky lady.

    Nice Bike!

    I love the Cinco, identical frame to me!

    I agree with Zaskar though, the silver rims arent my cup of tea, but look great! All that CK gear is just show'n off! haha!

    Happy riding!
