Calling All COLNAGO DREAM OWNERS!!!!!!!!!!Dreamer
Feb 21, 2002 9:42 AM

I've placed an order on this frame LX10 if I'm not mistaken. The Blue color. Just curious what are your setups and total bike weight.

Mine would be :
Ultegra grouppo
ITM Millenium handlebar, ITM BIG ONE stem and seatpost
Shimano R535 wheelset
Selle San Marco(titanium rails) saddle
Michelin Axial Pro tires
Speedplay X pedals.

What would the weight be? 18lbs? Was wondering which wheelset is better, the Mavic Cosmic or Shimano R535? I'm taking into consideration the reliability, easy to true, weight. Thanks!

i have a mxl frame but i think they are pretty close to the same...i have mavic open pro wheels, michelin axial pro tires, campy chorus 10 spd, look pedals...and the force carbon fork...the bike weighs 18 1/2 lbs...the bike rides like it is a lot lighter if that makes sense....ride safe...
Complete MXL weighs 18.5?ColnagoFE

MXL is way heavier than the Dream. Do you have a really small frame? I ride a 62cm which is a touch over 20 lbs complete. I find it hard to believe that a similat setup could be much under 19lbs even in a small size.

I have a Dream Plus, color scheme 00F. It weighs just under 17 pounds. It is right on the boarder. It is a 52cm frame with Mavic Ksyrium wheels, Continental 3000 tires, Flash fork, Easton EC 90 bars, Campy Record 9 speed shifters, Colnago tape, Deda Magic stem ti bolts, Chris King headset, Record brakes, Record BB, FSA Pro Carbon Cranks, Campy 9 chain, Shimano Dura Ace 9 speed cassette(yes it works), Record front and rear derailleurs, record carbon seat post, flite saddle. Hope I didn't leave anything out.

I think that it would go under 18 lbs. Have you read the biketest at the Cycle Sport magazine (March 02)? Your setup is similar to their test bike.

Same here, around 18.5. You can go lower but you'll see the price go up.

Right around 17# with the Mavic Cosmos wheelset I use for everyday. We have 4 sets of Cosmos, one of which I race and ride cyclo-cross on. Don't care much for deep-dish rims for everyday riding here in Boulder; there's just too much wind. The Rolfs on my old Trek about got me killed on a gusty canyon descent.

49cm Dream Plus LX14 (yellow)
Force ti-reinforced carbon steerer fork (shaves quite a bit of weight)
Record 10 grouppo except for Mavic M-10 brakes (lighter)
USE Alien carbon seatpost with SLR saddle
ITM Millenium bar & stem
Speedplay X-2 pedals
Elite cages

Axial Pros on the everyday wheels, Vittoria tubies on the Zipps.
