    only took me 4 years lol.

    Would like a set of carbon wheels but at £1300 these might have to wait.

    The bike is so fast its untrue any way enjoy :)

    Unless you are racing a pro event, no one cares. That much of a lighter bike does not make a difference by much for an amateur ........

    That really is one of the best looking bikes I have ever seen. What are the specs on the parts.

    I've love to have a newer OCLV with the internal cable. Looks so much cleaner than mine. Nice bike man, I like.

    6.8kg is the legal limit, but unless you are pro, I doubt anyone cares.

    6.8kg = 14.96lbs (if the conversion is 2.2lbs to a kilo that is..?? When are
    you guys going to move into the present and use metric :p)

    Congrats, looks like a sweet ride. I just finished mine this past spring and got it to 17.9 pounds, including aero bars.

    Looks NICE! Is that one of the full carbon saddles? If so, does it hurt? :eek:

    The saddle is very nice,

    it has ti rails and flexes alot,

    only weighs 135 gramms

    the saddles with carbon rails are not very nice imo very harsh to ride.

    those handlebars look like they are shaped the old fashioned way....
    it would drive me crazy

    other than that, wow! amazing bike.
