840 gram Frame

Updated Bontrager XXX seatpost and stem and a better picture. I think this has to be one of the lightest frames on the market right now. The Med is claimed to be 840 grams and mine is an XS. Next upgrades will be Bontrager carbon cranks and Zipps, but I'm not sure which ones. Now with over 2K on thi

Nothing wrong with the Ksyriums on your rig! I've got a set of Zipp 404 clinchers (which I won!). They are excellent and the bearings are better than the Ksyriums - only problem is that they get bounced around in a crosswind. Maybe consider the 303s. If you want ultra light go for tubulars - I didn't want the extra expense and hassles of tubulars.

Nice photo and nice bike - although must admit that I'm not a fan of the T-Mobile colours. Too pink for an old guy like me. Might get away with it riding in Italy!

Thanks for the input. I wish the t-mobile color was blue personally. Great frame for the price though. You're right about aero wheels, I'm only 130lbs and I have enough trouble with these spokes on windy days as it is. I'm just looking for something a little lighter. Maybe considering American Classics 350's. Does anyone know what they're like for an everyday wheel?

AC-350's are a great wheelset. I've had mine for a year now, bought them used and trued them once. Judging from the size of your frame, you're not a big rider ;). I'm about 5'11" and 170lbs, and the wheels have held up well under all conditions (CT roads can be iffy at times). Good luck.
