How much is it and how did they make it less than two pounds if it's ti? I like it that it doesn't have the goofy integrated headset like most of the rest of the 2002 Litespeeds.

According to CyclingNews the Vortex will be the standard for road stages and the Ghisallo will be for "selected riders", i.e., light climbers only.

The litespeed rep at the bike shop I work at said the everyday bike would be the Vortex and everyone would be getting a blade TT bike as well. He didn't mention the Ghisallo but it would make sense to showcase it for some of the climbers in the big Tours. I was a bit suprised riders like Tchmil wouldn't want something a bit more beefy like the Ultimate for Paris-Roubaix, etc., but then I've never ridden these bikes (and they probably haven't either) so maybe the Vortex can handle the cobbles!

Pro riders have been riding the Vortex in Europe for a number of years. It is probably one the most repainted bikes ever.
