finally got my M4 after it had been searched for drugs and lost in some warehouse. I went for a 56cm and it fits great, very light and rides great so far.

What drivetrain did you finally settle on? Have you weighed it yet?

without the cassette it's about 20.5 pounds, so 21 lbs all up or thereabouts. I have a 42 BMX ring on my 105 cranks and I am getting a 13-26 9 speed cassette, everything else on it is Veloce in the drivetrain. If that's too small after the first few races this season, I'll go to a 28 or 29.

I have a 42 up front on my best bike as well. But why did you put on a front derailer, a full left shift/brake cmbo? Do you plan to put 2 rings up front at times?
I have the Rohloff chainguide. Not easy to set up, but it's light and strong. On the left no STI, just a Shimano aero lever. Saved me money, one right Dura-Ace plus a set of aero's is way cheaper than 2 Dura-Ace's.

I want to be able to put on a double without too much fuss and changing around of parts. Off-road or epic rides I would put on a different set of rings and then I'd need the derailleur and it is already set up.

Jan -- Where do you get single STI levers? I'd love to do that on more than one bike, but I haven't found anyplace that will sell just a single lever. Worse, it seems that everyone likes to crash on the right-hand side, since I only tend to see used singles for the left-hand lever.

Cheers!

Any LBS can order you single STI Levers. The are sold individually for replacement not just as pairs.

what did the frame weigh?

? I put it together in the shop before I took it home. I suppose it weighs 21 pounds less all the other parts, I'd say around 4.5 lbs for the frameset but that is a wild ass guess.
