Yeah, the Ridley is right at 19 lbs, and the Moots is right at 23 lbs. The Moots' weight is with three bottle cages, and a size 58 frame. The Brooks saddle weighs almost 400g more than the Specialized saddle I had planned to use, and the crankset is just the Ultegra, whereas the one on the Ridley is carbon. I also overbuilt the hell out of the wheels, running 32 spoke F/R, and I'm a pretty light bean pole @6'2" - 165 lbs. This was the one time where I went for rugged over light-weight, for reference my full suspension mountain bike is right at 25 lbs.

Cheers!

Still liking your Donnybrook a year later? 

How tall are you and what size is yours? I am on the border of a 54 medium and 56 large.  

Are you running a 160 mm rotor rear? Their site has a confusing phrase "Disc Brakes: ISO, post mount, or flat mount 140mm rear available" that I think means you can run a flat mount 140 or an other size ISO or post.

Close. It's a Toupe. A little flatter on top. I like Specialized saddles for the choice of width. The narrow ones work just right for me.

Gotcha. I have a Toupe on my road bike and gravel bike.

Thought it was a Romin, after reading about the raised tail being supposedly pretty good for steep hills.

Quickkarl, is the Sram 11-42 cassette a thing? I thought they came with a 11-36 and if you wanted to get up to a 42 tooth it would be 10-42 and would need the HD driver body to accomplish that. Would be nice if they do have an 11-42. Adam said he would send me a HD driver to convert if I wanted to, but think maybe the 11-36 would be low enough anyway for where I ride. Thanks

An awful photo of an awesome bike!  Just finished building this baby up for testing and I'm dying to get out on it this weekend!  SRAM Rival 1 brakes/shifter/derailleur, e*thirteen TRS+ cassette, SRAM XX1 crank. Running tubeless with 700x35 Panaracer Gravel Kings it's coming in right at 18lb.  Hoping to lose another half pound on the wheelset after I get the 500 test miles my boss wants on this one.  I don't need 28/28 spoke wheels, but we need test miles on this wheelset, so this is what I'm "stuck" with for the moment [wink]
