Here she is with the wheels off my TT bike
Very classy ride! I wish the DI2 specific RC with integral seat mast were available here in the US. Color me jealous now . . . :thumbsup:

Had this for awhile now - depending on which parts I use it goes between just under 11.5lbs to under 13lbs.
Cool! Looks like the crankset might be part of that magic. :thumbsup:

It deserves a larger picture! :idea:

It's really the wheels. They're sub 1000g. The vumaquad crank is light, but the carbon rings are somewhat misleading-- they save a whopping 20-25g over the stock rings.

That is light, even for carbon tubular rims! :thumbsup:

More wheel details would be welcome.

So it's not quite as light 11.5 lbs, but it's at 14 lbs 3 oz complete with powertap. I've been on it for a bit over a year and it's really the best riding road bike I've been on.

I know it's your bike, not mine, but I think white saddles look really nice. Ditto the tape, especially with your frame colors.

I'm kinda lusting after the new Red group myself. Probably "ain't gonna happen". :rolleyes:

Thanks for sharing a look at your machine! :thumbsup:

i really appreciate your very kind comments! i love the look of the white saddle and tape, but this bike has become my commuter and i'm thinking black will be easier to maintain, otherwise i'd keep them white.

Can't argue with the maintenance on the bar tape!

There was some white Scott tape that is not foam up on eBay about the time I ran out of patience cleaning. With a layer of the foam tape under it, just on the top of the bars, it is very comfy . . . and stays clean because it is not an open cell foam.



This stuff has no adhesive on the back, so it is a bit of a challenge to wrap, but is very durable and stays put once you get it in place. The trick is finding the stuff . . .

Here is the only link I could find by searching: Scott Bartape Road | LaGrandeRide.com

wow, so 2 layers of bar tape? i'll keep this in mind for when the time comes.

ive also got a zipp 101 wheelset on the way in grey. would have preferred black for that too, but perhaps the grey will match the grey graphics on the frame. will post a pic when they're on the bike

Nope! Just a short strip on the very top of the bar to provide a little give. It's probably so compressed by now that it has no effect, other than psychological. But, I just know it helps.

Wheels are edge/enve 1.45 rims built up around extralite hubs and sapim cx-ray spokes. They came in at 990g, November will be 3 years with them and they are still true.

Built by fairwheel bikes.
