Some people will believe anything they read. With a normal Litepseed weighing in at over 15 pounds, there is no way they can reduce the weight that much and still be rideable. Maybe they forgot to weigh the wheels.
I have now, but...mmquest

why is it so cool when someone builds a bike that is so light it is unrideable? If someone else wants to great, but you couldn't get me to ride with a welded crank in a million years.

PS - my neighbors kid has a sub-10# bike too. He's six and I bet his bike is about as useful to a large (i.e. grown) rider as this one. ;)
look at the set up!Qubeley

That is pretty light for an incomplete bike. I mean, old style brake with down tube shifter? no bar tape just to save weight? and what kind of pedal is that? Check out the rear break cable, sorry, can't make right turn on this bike, cable cut too short. Don't even want to get started with that POS crank, I bet they put a 46 big ring just to save weight too.
Why would any idiot build a bike that everyone know isn't gonna perform? Everybody know it is just a litespeed with bunch of retarded components..
PS: I am not a stem police, but Sir, we have a situation here..
Ditch those spacers, the lightest bike in the world just got lighter!
Is it just me or would a H2O bottle fall through the cage?! n/mmmquest

Cool pedals and seat thingy though...fbg111

Maybe I'll add those pedals to my short list of Speedplay's and Coombe Pro's. That seat adjustment looks pretty cool too, especially for peeps who do both road riding and triathlons.
Sub-11# bike for the sub-90# rider? (nm)DeRanger
