The site is in german, but click on the das-bike link and then click on the various components. It really is pretty amazing how light this bike is.

|friction shifting and no bar tape. At least they included pedals in the weight of the bike, unlike those at the Vegas show.

|The weight list has Speedplay pedals as 120g, and Speedplay's own website says it's 150g, 25% more than the claimed weight. So 9lbs may not be accurate.
Also, the bike looks ugly, especially the bars/brake levers. And ergo/sti shifting should be the default for high end bikes these days. I mean if you get rid of derailleurs, multi cogs, tires (well bikes used to not have these things, right?) you'd end up with a much lighter bike.

|You would think that the bike Mfg. would start incorporing more components together to make a bike lighter and stronger. For instance. Why not make the crank arm and pedal axle as one piece. We could have slip on our Look covers that would either have a Jesus clip or some other locking device that was light. I'm sure there are other places but why not? CATAPULT|| |
