I've got the same wheels: novatec d771/d772sb, cx-ray spokes and hr930c. Weight: 1540gr. As expected.
What spokes do you have?

Are you riding races and put you your race number on your handlebar?

This is a hell of gear ratio indeed. Is your country as flat as Holland ? :)
>:( ... we have ... ehhhh ... okay, you're right!

Do you have own molds ? And do you have the rims on stock ?

Sad to hear you broke your 256SL. But very happy to see this one! Awesome design!

Did you swap the front and rear brake lever position from the right to left ?

Don't like the rear attachment of the wheels. Looks like a little flimsy.
But the weight is okay.

The forward face of the seatpost needs something to rest on or the seatpost will rock back and forth when sitting on the seat and pedaling which, in theory, could lead to cracking at the seat tube/top tube/seat stay junction area.
I agree. A layer of clear coat of paint will solve this issue (is my own experience). So, also not a big deal.

Don't forget, this is not an expensive brand, but a 'cheap' Chinese frame. You have to deal with this kind of small things.

I don't see any problem.
The inside of the head tube doesn't have to be smooth. The bearing cups should be smooth. If the headset bearing is to tighten, you can sand down a little bit of the horizontal part, not the slanted side.
When the seat tube isn't smooth, that's also not a problem. Especially when the seat post can slide in. The part that should be smooth is the inside of the seat tube where the clamp is placed. Only this part will hold you seat post on place en should made good contact (in combination of carbon paste).

So, I shouldn't worry to much. Build up your bike and have fun....

What's the total weight on this beast?

Looks fairly light.

I'd love to build up a sub-16lb gravel bike.

For the ones who care about this: it weights just over 7.4kg as it is on the pictures, and feels very light when holding it and riding it  :D

How many time/km have you keep the novatec ?
I think about 6000km.
Overall Novatec is okay. Maybe I had bad luck. At the end for me, it's was cheaper to buy it with DT Swiss 350 right away. But what happend with the 350 after 6000km ?

I bought the same wheel set three years ago from XMIPlay. In the time Peter was a co-worker there.
The actual weight was 1540gr. Still have the wheel set, but the Novatec didn't hold it. See somewhere in my topic. The hubs are now replaced with DT Swiss 350 hubs.
If I have to buy a new wheel set again, I certain go for this wheel set again, but with DT Swiss 350 hubs.
