Moots Vamoots RSL ~ Feb 15

My Moots Vamoots RSL road bike is due to arrive and be built up around Feb 15 by Palo Alto Bicycles, with the Psychlo X RSL to follow about a week later.

I am building my Moots Vamoots RSL as light as possible for the Everest Challenge, while remaining durable and without any performance glitches (e.g. shifting issues). A power meter and Shimano Di2 shifting are mandatory.

This drives certain choices—

The Cannondale Hollowgram crankset looks to save 1/2 pound or so versus a DuraAce crankset (that's a figure based on SRM specs, could be less), a figure to be confirmed when configured with an SRM spider.

The Hollowgram crankset has a key advantage on the Moots Vamoots RSL: no adapter is needed for the PressFit 30 bottom bracket, whereas a DuraAce crankset is not only heavier, but also requires an adapter.

The Ritchey parts save 10-20 grams each over other alternatives I’d consider, which can add up to a few ounces.

Along with bits and pieces such as aluminum bolts for the watter bottles and a few other titanium oddments saving 4-10 grams each, single layer bar tape (it all adds up), I am optimistic that the Vamoots RSL can approach the 14.5 pound mark, which would be remarkable for a titanium road bike.
