Hey Crawf -

What frame is the FM098 based on?
Looks a lot like cross between a Fuji SST and a Specialized Venge!
Looks nice!

Hacked original battery mount waiting to be fed down the downtube, that'll be fun.

Indeed looks nice. Glad we're agreeing on something (except I thought you don't like this type of stuff..but ok)

I said I don't trust companies that copy others designs .. its called counterfeiting... I didn't say it doesn't look nice.

I want that bike :shock:

EDIT: do you have to have Di2 with that frame?
i.e. could I throw on Ultegra?
Does it run a standard shimano BB and crank?
quick calcs tell me that I wouldn't get change out of $2k (using existing wheels)....

No, There are Di2 and non-Di2 versions of the frame, although the Di2 frames are still compatible with non-Di2 for some reason. You can also get different BB versions, so standard Shimano is fine.

Have just completed my fm098 running campy super record on a Di2 compatible frame. Only difference is that the Di2 frame here is;
- no rear D inner cable routing sleave with no cable stops
- a hole for the internal wiring
That's it AFAIK

It is a bit tricky routing the rear d cable, but not too bad.

Btw by my calcs with ultegra, this frame, carbon wheels and everything else on the bike you could do it for under 2.5k

so why that vs a azurri with di2 for the same $

one of the reasons I didn't go that route. Went SR and for a little over 3k. Couldn't find that set-up in that price range.

was at my friendly LBS yesterday and his recommendation was to buy a CE bike with the bits you want, transplant and sell the frame. he reckons it works out cheaperer

Looks bad ass.

Hi

This may have been answered, would you be able to tell me the weight of the frame + fork? I'm interested in buying this frame :D

http://www.velobuild.com/36-fm098-dengf ... t&type=raw

1162g for the frame, 436g for the fork, so quite heavy compared to the others (FM028/FM066)

Yep allot... very overkill, but I had the hubs waiting and wanting rims, If you have Alchemy hubs you gotta use them! - 28/32h.

any recent pics of the bike ;)

How has it been, any issues? I'm considering buying a frame as a project training bike.

Nope no issues, well none that I haven't caused, i.e. stripping bolts :)
If you're after a stiffer more crit style bike then chose this, or something slightly more relaxed say for climbing then go the FM028.
I notice the stiffness in the bracket when sprinting compared to the FM028, it just propels that little bit more.

ah cheers for the photos, the bike looks amazing :D I would want something similar with maybe a red stripe on the inside of the fork :P

so i got quoted on velobuild around $520 for a small frame, seem right to you? and another $500 for 38mm carbon clinchers
