    I have a custom made JADE bike. I sent in my measurements, told him the type of frame I want, told the color, the components, the decals, paint schemes (designs), everything was exactly how I wanted it. That is how they sell the JADE bikes. They have stock bikes, w/ stock colors as well.

    The JADE CX-4 is the one that I got, and I got a green prism paint (which changes color in different light situations) and awesome components.

    Great racing bike!!!

    Anyone else w/ custom bikes????

    You got yourself a sweet bike. Always better to ride a bike that is meant for you and only you. Not just some stock bike hanging in shop shop.

    The main difference between our bikes is that I went to the factory to get sized. You recieved a better factory paint job. Took my uncle at his bodyshop to correct this problem.
    Also have a prism clearcoat over top of my purple.......

    My roadbike, an old Simplex-equipped Peugeot tips the scales at 9,9kg and my commuter-bike a 10-speed Crescent is 18kg (has lots of stainless-steel equipment on it and a frame made from lead!?).

    Have the old school STI 8-spd. If I get into accident, might not be able to locate parts. Having problems just locating hoods. Wanted to switch over to 9-spd, but shall save some more and wait til 10-spd is out.

    Does anyone have Shimano's bike computer that tells you what gear you are in? If so how is it?

    My road bike is a 1999 Fuji Touring with a few changes (brooks conquest ATB saddle, dura ace stem and welgo cr-md clipless pedals) and with the factory rack weighs in at about 24 lbs.

    For runs to the drug store and rec center, I use a trek 200 which weighs closer to 28 lbs.

    Do those waterbottle cages save that much weight? If so how much. You know what else saves weight? Filling bottles with air instead of fluid.... :)
