Regarding Light bikes, how about an 11 lb road bike?(10 posts)

Regarding Light bikes, how about an 11 lb road bike?JD

I am working on a lightweight webpage, and a friend of mine is trying to build the world's lightest bike, currently it's just under 12 lbs. Here's a pic. What do you guys think?

Oh and is it rideable? Yes, he rides it often...

Here is the link to the webpage, I have more pics of his bike along with a component list.

It appears that the claimed light weight wheelset is not what it is claimed.Those are not AC carbon wheels..those appear to be Velocity deep v rims and not the Zipp 280's.
This is the guy who had claimed he had a super light weight bike with a different frame..and when called out to prove what he had with a picture..he of course could not produce.I would not put to much stock into the accuracy of this rig.
What say you?
hey, at least the site has a shit-ton of annoying pop-ups. nmraboboy

The owner of speedplay has a Bill Holland custom Ti bike built at less than 11 lbs. I have seen a story on the web about the bike but cant find it now. It is built up as a show bike for the trade shows but is ridable. I know he is allways changing the bike when lighterer parts come out.

I think its a ever evolving project for the people at speedplay. Anytime a new and lighter part is found it is put on the bike. A spare no expense bike.
