|just for fun, for you weight weenies out there how light is your bike? what components, wheels and...|
Nov 29, 2001 9:59 AM
|Last time I tipped the scales, it was 16.5lbs. Wheels are really the only thing holding me back.
Not a whole lot really exotic- Litespeed Vortex, Campy Record, carbon bar, 'The Stem'. Next up, as permitted by cash flow: Zipp 303 ZM wheels, Record carbon crank, AX Lightness saddle...
|17.1 lbs ALL IN!!!||CrazyMan|
Nov 29, 2001 11:37 AM
Ritchey Pro Stem
Buanchi Levitation Wheels
Deda 215 bar
Flite TT saddle
Record Components with chorus cassette
Weighs a shade over 17 with everything.
Could shave half a pound with nicr wheels.
|don't dp the 303's||tcr01|

|Go for the 404's, trust me, this will be the fastest wheel you ever ride. The deeper section will benefit you more than the weight. The 303 is damn light but still isn't the wheel the 404 is.|
|I want LIGHT...||TJeanloz|

|I'm a greedy bastard, I don't care about fast, I want LIGHT. I already have a 909 wheelset (404 front, disc rear); so I suppose I could get the matching 404 rear. But have you seen the new 303 tubular?|

|The superlight 303 are 3000$ ! LOL
I'm sure they got a 90% profit marge on those
Nov 30, 2001 10:01 AM
|I still want them.|
|for $3000, why not ADA? 970gm/pair||nm|

|Zipps @ 960g, and I don't speak dutch.
But if the Euro continues to fall...Me and Cees might be talking.
|And ADA's don't have those trick bearings, do they?||DMoore|

|No but you could upgrade them..||gimondi|

|Have my Zipp 2002 price sheet here, you can buy those ceramic bearings as an upgrade for.....
But that does include all six cartridges ;-)

|I reconfigured my special "climbing" bike. No it's not a road raceable bike, but you asked:
Bianchi EV2, early 2000 (that matters), 55cm
AC (Bianchi) all carbon fork
Velomax Ascent Pros (Lew carbon rims)
ITM Millenium 110mm stem (with Ti bolts) (could knock off 30 grams or so with The Stem, for $200)
Easton carbon bars
STI right/rear brake lever/shifter
Cane Creek front brake
no rear brake or left lever/shifter
38 tooth front ring (no large), Al bolts
no front derailleur (or cable, of course)
Dura Ace bottom bracket
DA crank, 172.5mm (with SRP Ti bolts)
DA rear derailleur (wtih SRP Al main pivot bolt, Al pulley bolts, and Ti cable bolt)
DA 12-27 cassette
(chain shortened due to no large chainring)
USE Alien carbon seatpost
Selle Italia SLR saddle
Tufo 207g tubulars
Zipp carbon bottle cage
Look PP206 pedals (could be lighter still with Speedplay X/1 pedals)
I get on this bike after riding the all Record C40, and it makes the C40 feel like a truck. It accellerates instantly, and really does climb faster. Four or five pounds really does make a difference. I'll use this bike in this form for the long climbs of next year's 508. Not useful for much else, but perfectly suited for climbing.

|but to me you are a visionary.
by the way: know of any feedback on tufo sealant or rim strips?

|16.25-16.5 lbs depending on the shop I bring it to, and the amount of dirt on her. She is a small giant tcr team with full ultegra, ultegra/open pro wheels, with some deda stuff, an easton carbon seatpost, fizik pave saddle, and some heavy look pedals.|

It's still going much faster then my previous Peugot bike (23lbs) !

|My Giant ONCE replica is 16# and my LOOK KG281 is 16.5# Both could probably lose 1/2 pound with some serious money. I think a 16# bike is just about the lightest that makes sense from a $/weight point of view.
I think the Giant is ever so slightly quicker up a mountain.... all things being equal. The difference is way smaller than my day-to-day variations though.
