worked on it in "dribs and drabs", but finally finished it and took it for a long ride today:

Funny, even though I have newer and more "modern" bikes, this one is still my lightest and fastest bike. Frame will be 40 next June!

19, actually, without pedals and add-ons (although, with seatbag and bolt-ons, it's probably 24 lbs). The carbon seatpost and Campy Strada tubular rims save a good bit of weight. The 710 frame is really noodly, too. Probably as light as anything in it's size.

Considering 'upgrading' my bonded aluminum Kinesis fork to a straight carbon fork, but with a 1" steerer, my choices are kind of limited. If anybody has any suggestions...

19lbs - nice. Yeah modern wheels and cassette will shave some weight. Average weight on my 80's bikes is 21-22 lbs.

My only experience with a Kinesis aluminum fork was not pleasant (cyclocross bike). I have a 1" Profile BRC fork that was on my 57 cm C40 for a few years until I went back to a steel fork. There are options out there in 1" - Profile, EMS made a fork for Kestrel, Columbus Carve.
