5.69 kilogram! Oh, that is so ridiculous, outrageously light, lean and unheard of agility I suppose. The geometry shows you can also move this machine as well. I can only wish I have one.

You can get the seat and post from a Dutch guy called Werner. Just type in GRace in google, or search the threads on weightweenies.com There are a few seat and post separates that can come close in weight, but mega expensive--not that this one was otherwise!
cheers,

Thanks, gandini! Project bike will be done in Feb. 2006. Might not be able to order in time, but will consider it as a future upgrade. :)

I am not sure if I need your permission. I use this TCR as a screen saver on my Mac. I simply love the windswept front end and a straight fork over these less-spoke aero wheels. This is NOT a touring bike, is it ? :)

pakonbike: You can surely use my photo as a wallpaper. If you PM me I will actually send you a larger image, just tell me what screen resolution you are using. I will send you a 1-1 pixel image. I have the older bike with Cinelli RAM bars and stem, and can send you the newer bike with more conventional bars/stem and Grace seat/post eitherway.
