New ride

This sexy bike is my new ride!!



Above is what will be waiting for me when I get back to La Crosse. The frame is 900 grams (<2 lbs) of both stiff and comfy carbon goodness. It is built up will full carbon campy record 10 spd including Campy record cranks. Zero gravity brakes (<200 grams). Bontrager handlebars. Ritchey stem. Thompson seat post and fly saddle.

I will be adding a pair of my newly acquired X/1 Titanium speedplay pedals, and perhaps if EPU convinces me, a pair of these these wheels.

In the end it should come in around 14.5 pound. A little more if I don't go with the crazy light wheels. My current sled comes in at 23 pounds so I will be dropping 8 pounds on my bike. Plus I should be down 5 pounds in body weight by the time I get back. That will be over 13 pounds of total vehicle weight I am dropping.

Are you serious about this or just some s@#t talking poser. Get the wheels. We also have a pair of record hubs so you could build a light as crap wheels also, but the bontragers would be the shit.
