I also posted this in the BIKES forum, but being a sub-12lb everyday bike, I figured it was worthy here as well.

I can't remember what the lowest weight I had on this bike was, but I thought this was pretty impressive. I think it was around 11.65 lbs. This version is 11.99 - .025 for the strap it's hanging from for an 11.965 lb weight, including the garmin 500 and speed/cadence sensor.

The difference between this version and the old version is this is setup involves a shimano 7900 11-27 cassette and edge 1.45 wheels (extralite hubs) instead of the stronglight 11-25 cassette and reynolds cirro sv wheels I had on for a light setup-- what you see here is the "everyday" setup I use. The cassette and wheel weight difference accounts for somewhere around 70-100g more weight. There have been some other changes-- mini i-links, edge 2.0 fork replaced by a 1.0 fork, 1 cm shorter extralite stem, fsa headset replaced by kcnc morion. I'll be cutting down the fork a bit more so that will drop a spacer or two and some steerer tube for a bit more weight savings (evolution of my position on the bike).

I'm in my 4th year of riding this frame-- still love it.

Current build:

Frame: 2006 scott cr1 sl
Fork: edge 1.0
headset: kcnc morion (extralite ultrastar expander)
wheelset: edge 1.45 w/ extralite hubs, challenge criterium tires, m2racer (non-qr) skewers
crankset: lightning 170mm compact w/ 50t stronglight ct2, 34t extralite octaramp, extralite chainring bolts
pedals: time iclic titan
chain: kmc x10sl
cassette: dura ace 7900 11-27 (should probably switch to 11-25)
cables/housing: brake- i-links w/ power cordz, gears- mini i-links
brakes: kcnc cb1 w/ swissstop yellow pads
seatpost: xx-light sp31 w/ lotz seatpost clamp
saddle: MLD 130mm
front derailleur: campy chorus (tuned)
rear derailleur: sram red (tuned)
stem: extralite ul3 90mm
handlebars: schmolke tlo white carbon (thanks madcow)
shifters: sram red w/ btp clamps EDIT: I forgot I have 3 sets of btp carbon hoods- that should account for 20-30g of weight savings (I think the hudz weigh about 60g, so could be even more savings).
bottle cages: emporelli dolomiti (love these)

Aren't you legally required to put a string and a weight on there so the bike does not float up and get tangled into powerlines?:D

I think my crankset weighs more than your bike!!! (but my knees love my triple)

Nice. How do you like the iLink/mini-iLink cables? They're very popular in the mtb ww world, but I was curious about their popularity in the road world. Do you have the iLinks going all the way to the shift/brake levers, or do they stop at the handlebar tape?

I like them- they work just fine- less of a PITA than the Nokons were. Mine run under the bar tape to the shifters.

Good to hear the iLinks are working well. How do you like the KCNC brakes with the SRAM levers? How's modulation and stopping power?

I've had no issues. I posted on weightweenies about how I was descending around 45mph and a car pulled out in front of me doing about 20-- I hit the brakes- low and behold, I was able to stop, no issues. I weight about 150-155lbs, and the kcnc's work just fine for me.

Make sure your scale is accurate. I had one of those scales at work. Found out my bike wasn't as light as I thought it was. It was over 1/2 off when compared to the Park Tool scale.


But nontheless, nice bike.

yeah, cross checked it with a friend's scale and compared some lighter stuff with my gram scale. If anything, this weight is higher than it should be, but not by much. :)
