We absolutely love these Dogma builds. A few of these have been built up recently and we find the Dogma framesets build into amazing bikes capable of anything from a weekend excursion to a pro series race. We try to feature them here on our blog whenever possible, like this limited edition dogma build, so here you go!
This build is pretty special, featuring several rarely seen parts. One particular highlight is the Lightweight Meilenstein carbon clinchers which are impossibly, well, lightweight. 3T’s stealthy Integra LTD stem features a unique look and is crazy stiff, and thanks to Garmin you can replace the stock faceplate with a hopped up Garmin mount faceplate for the cleanest possible computer integration. More on that below…
Lightweight Meilenstein Clinchers
Weighing in at 1,100 grams, this wheelset weighs about as much as other folks’ rear wheel. One piece carbon construction allows for this insanely light setup. The carbon bladed spokes are permanently bonded to the clincher rims and run directly into the carbon hubs. This wheelset features 16 spokes up front and 20 in the rear for extra weight savings. The rear spokes are woven together with carbon and resin where they cross, enhancing stiffness and keeping the spokes from moving against each other.
Nothing about the Lightweight wheelset is replaceable or adjustable, save for the bearings and DT Swiss Star Ratchet freehub. It might sound a little scary, but these are the toughest wheels they produce. Capable of high speed descents, cobble stone segments in the pro peloton, or anything in between, all you need to concern yourself with (besides simply riding them) is replacing the cartridge bearings as needed and keeping your weight below 220lbs.
3T Carbon Cockpit
There is a lot going on in this cockpit. An 800 series Garmin head unit on the stem, five port Di2 junction box beneath the stem, and Shimano’s Di2 climbing shifter tucked beneath the handlebar. The Garmin mount integrates into the 3T Integra stem to help reduce the clutter. Attaching the junction box to the bottom of the stem via some fancy double-sided tape eliminated the need for the stock Shimano rubber strap you would normally see wrapping around the stem.
All things considered, this is a pretty well organized setup and includes only what’s necessary and aesthetically pleasing, right down to the painted-to-match zip ties. Details, details, details.
In the end, you can’t do too much else to top this one out. Sure, there are little boutique component manufacturers producing ridiculously light brakes, cranks, etc. In theory you could shave a few grams here and there, but to have no-nonsense performance and reliability in a 15.5lb package, including pedals, and retain the ride quality of a Dogma, who can complain?
Enjoy the rest of the pictures below and email us with any questions. We are more than happy to work with you on your next custom build whether it’s an enduro inspired mountain bike, a cyclocross steed, or a carbon crit bike.
