Hi all,

Just wondering what's the weight of the Colnago Dream(46cm) + Ultegra groupset + Shimano R535 wheelset + Selle San Marco saddle + Easton seatpost + ITM stem and handlebar + Hutchinson tires. Will be be about 19lb?? Thanks.

It depends on if you bought the Flash or Force forks. I had a Dream with a Flash fork and it has to be one of the heaviest carbon forks.

My wife has a 2000 model year Dream, which I believe is the same size as yours. Her's has Campy Record, sew-up wheels and Look pedals and officially weighs in at 16.7 pounds. If you add about a pound and a half for the Ultegra equipment and clincher rims, you'll probably end up at a little over 18. Being a 2000 model, her's, by the way, is Altec 2+, not Airplane tubing, but I've heard conflicting opinions on whether Airplane is in fact lighter than the older tubeset. In any case, the machine jumps. Enjoy.

I'd guess the built bike would be between 17.5-18#. No way 19# unless you put a couple of full water bottles on it. ;-)

I'm curious..... how does that small Colnago frame fit your wife? The small Colnago frames has such LOOOOONG "effective" TT's it seems like they really wouldn't fit a women very well. Keep in mind the seat tube angle is rather extreeeeem on the small Colnagos which effectively lengthens the TT. I'm willing to bet that your wife has a fairly short stem on her bike. ????
