Muy pretty bike. Too bad about the green tires though. Tires are meant to be black. In fact, colored tires are one of the first signs of the impending apocalypse.

Definitely a good bike - but you forgot to include the 3 most interesting pieces of information in your list:

- weight of the frame
- weight of the fork
- weight of the full bike.

About tires did anyone know that colored tires are a herder compound in colors on identical tires? Somone told me this at my velodrome. It's a wood indoor track and somone slid down. He said the guy wasn't fast enough for hard colored tires. Dunno if it's true. Anyone know?????????

Nice saddle- just tell me how that feels after 50 or 60 miles- I've looked at the all carbons, just dont know that my butt can take it!
I did a 4 hr ride yesterday on it. I gotta tell ya, it looks like it would be torture, but it's not! I would describe the feel as "firm", no pain though. No worse than riding a standard SLR or even an SLR XP. Because the carbon shell is thinner, you get more flex. My Aliante is a lazyboy compared to this and even that saddle is uncomfortable for some people. Also, I ride Bergamo winter stuff and they have a relatively thick chamois which gives you plenty of cushion.

If you ride any of the "minimalist" saddles-SLR, Aspide, etc. you can easily ride one of these.

The only thing that scares me is having the bike tip over at the coffee shop and "CRACK!", there goes the saddle!

Can't help you on the frame and fork. I wasn't a weight weenie when I bought it! The bike weighs 17.3 lbs with the Fulcrums and 16.1 lbs with the Hyperons including bottle cages and Keo ti pedals.
