Azmil’s stainless V3 endurance road

Azmil’s stainless V3 endurance road

Azmil asked me to build him a bike for covering long distances at a good pace. He opted for the V3 design with an Enve carbon seatmast, in this case with the rest of the frame being full stainless steel. The hoses and Di2 wires are fully integrated, hidden inside the Coefficient handlebar, Enve stem and fork, FSA headset and the frame itself, with a T47 BB shell providing the internal space required.

For carrying gear, Brian at Kaibab Customs created a full set of custom bikepacking bags. There are bosses for the framebag to bolt into the frame, and it has a dedicated lower pocket for the Apidura hydration bladder, along with general storage in the top compartment. The seatbag has a maximum 5L capacity.

The build features Shimano Dura-ace Di2 shifting, supplemented with an Absolute Black pulley cage and SRM carbon crank. Lightweight provide the wheels. The finish is a full polish with beadblasted logos and clearcoated carbon performed by Colorworks. Final weight without the bags is 17.2lbs.

  1. cool bike (as usual)!

    regarding the absolute-black-pulley-cage, i thought it’s a scam, having extra friction actually, because of that design, of those large bearings. but seeing you building this bike, with that pulley-cage, makes me think. what is your take (apart cool effect), lower or normal or higher friction?

    thank you!
    best regards 😉
