My 16 lb Colnago just grew a wart on her nose.

I went to the Cyclocross World Party last night.....the new Cannondale team bikes weighed in at a bit over 14 lbs.

Lust........

So ya think commissars are going to be measuring tires and weighing bicycles next Wednesday?
Me neither.....
But I would like to be a fly on the wall watching them figure out 80%

Well they better add some weight somewhere because the UCI minimum is 6.8k (14.99lbs)
Hence the change in rules to allow disc brakes. A lot more useful in cross than the aero frames/wheels, powermeters, etc. you see on road bikes to get them up to the minimum weight.

No, seriously. Regardless of how much of an advantage they represent for CX, you'd have to be pretty thick headed to opt for a 6.8k canti equipped bike with lead weights over an otherwise identical disc equipped bike that also weighed 6.8k. You really think this hasn't crossed the minds of pro racers/team directors?

That's pretty rad that they've made bikes so light that they're actually having to ADD heavy parts to get it up to race weight.

This guy gets it!
My first cross bike...a glue and screw 1990ish Guerciotti was around 21 lbs ( and flexy)
My custom steel 2000 Stevens/SpinArts is 18lbs....and a feather for the time.
My C50 is 16 lbs....

Now any Joe with a wallet can buy a bike that the Pro's can't race.
We live in interesting times!

If your Colnago has a wart, what does my Yeti at 19lbs have??? Elephantitus???

I could not even imagine where to shave off 5 lbs of my bike, i might be able to get 2 maybe 3 going weight weeny and super lite wheels.

I just bought a steel cross bike so I have an excuse for riding so slow.
