built up this frameset yesterday.

amazingly light with Ksyrium 06 wheelset - clincher.
weigh in at 15.3lbs :eek: (i hope the scale is right though)

possibly a sub 16lbs bike with the Cosmic Carbone SL

Congrats on the new bike. Looks like a real rocket sled. One by one, we take over the world!

I'm full of envy, though I'd probably remove the wheel stickers as I think the busy red/white graphics of the frame doesn't match well with the busy yellow stuff that mavic thought would look really cool, good wheel but esthetics similar to the campy wheels would have done the frame more justice. Still envious...damn it.

first ride today

i sent the Cosmic Carbone SL for customized decals.. :)

will add new pic soon.

btw, rode the VXR today..
it's a real smooth ride, even Ksyrium SL inflated to 120psi. comparing to my other steel frame, the VXR is even smoother than the EOM 16.5 steel!

stiffness wise, the VXR is as stiff as my previous Merckx GX2 carbon frameset.

my only issue is the front end is a tad to 'responsive' as compared to my other rides.

my two cents worth..

cheers
