My Dream Plus will arrive about a month time. Since I'm very small sized, I am getting the 46cm frame(the smallest frame) and build it up with Ultegra parts, Shimano R535 wheelset, ITM Big One stem, Millennium handlebar and seatpost, Selle San Marco Era and Speedplay X pedals. How much do U think it will weigh? 18lb? 19lb? Most of the website quote the Dream Plus weight at 1670g or 3.68lb with Flash fork. I don't know what size is this. Maybe my 46cm frame will weigh less than that... :). Btw, any opinion/comment on this frame, ride quality...etc??? Thanks in advance.

Yup, sounds about right.Barnyard

The descending qualities are fantastic. The only time I really noticed the stiffness was when hitting holes, railroad tracks, etc. If you cared about the weight so much, then why not go with Dura Ace? The crankset is noiceably lighter and stiffer. The retail on your bike should be close to $3000 and if you cared about the weight why not go with a dura ace equipped carbon bike?

So, my frame is gonna be stiff? If this good or bad? Don't much about this though. My bike will be equipped with Flash. Put Ultegra cause this is the groupset that I can afford... :). Maybe will upgrade to Dura-ace later.
