I'm not sure about the size though. They always seem to go for long stems and shorter top tubes. I may not have measured everything correctly, but here it is.
don't be shocked if you get a phone call.terry b

I was trying to build the lightest one that I could actually ride (58cm, as in my size) and ruling out aluminum.

result was a record equipped CT1 with the only significant departure being cane creek brakes.

15.54lbs., about 4.5k I think.

funny thing was, one of their sales guys called me that day and asked me if I was really shopping (which I was.) sad thing - 2 month delay on CT1s. Had a nice visit on the phone.

by the time I got it tweaked just right...had to have Record carbon crank, CF bars, king hs, etc. Funny that the site doesn't seem to let you substitute different wheelsets. Do you get one with their quote?

I ride a 58cm - no "weigh" I can compete on weight with you guys who ride a 52cm.

But in the real world, my ride comes in just under 16lbs - so I beat you. HA!
