Compulsive bike builder
I will have to get updated pics of my tcr composite, which weighs in at 14.5 lbs. Lots of lighter bikes out there, I know!
I'm really curious...if this bike supposedly weighs 13.2 lbs, just what do you considermorrisond said:Here is my excel sheet. It is not fantasy, I'm just patiently waiting.
I weigh 220 lbs. so I couldn't go super light, but I'm pretty happy with 13.2 including pedals. Bike should be finished in two weeks.
Actually, silly me... I didn't realise that was your bike pictured there until only yesterday. I come from a forum where you sometimes have to jump on the thread instantly to take part in the discussion before it's over.morrisond said:Synchronicity, I'm only using the alloy cassette on my special carbon tubs, which I probably will only put a thousand or two miles on per year, if it only lasts a year, so be it. I use the ambrosio's pictured on the bike for my everyday wheels with a full steel Centaur Cassette. You might be right with the BTP clamps. I'm using Record Bottle cages, which work great with standard bottles.
This is my nice day bike, I will not ride it in the rain, I have C-dale Cyclocross Disc for the rain and when it's crappy out. I live in Toronto and would fret about even a cheap road bike being stolen if it was unattended, there is no way I would ever leave this bike alone. I take it out of my basement go for a ride and put a back, plus it's fully insured. In terms of cost I actually consider it cheap compared to my previous obsessions of cars and snowmobiles. I used to modify my snowmobiles and one blow up used to cost me 25% of the total cost of this bike(and when modifying I used to break it a few times every winter). To each their own.
