Latest Family Addition....Bixe
Jun 12, 2003 8:47 PM
Look KG 486 with HSC 4 fork and FSA headset,
Dura Ace, Ksyrium SSC SL's with Michelin Pro Race tires,
Speedplay X/1, Deda Blackstick post and Fizik Aliante saddle,
Ritchey WCS stem and 3T Prima bar.

Forgive me the Arundel carbon cages; I had a weak moment.

It's a size 57 and weighs in at 17.0 lbs.

Not enough pavement has yet passed beneath it to provide a valid evaluation, but the initial impression is that the KG 486 retains much of the plush feel of the KG 381 while having a snappier rebound to road vibration. The road feel is enhanced without fatiguing the rider. if that makes any sense.
I just wanna run my hands over those curves, if that's ok.PdxMark

wow... an amazing bike. I think the weak moment started before the bottle cages.
Sure, I understand.Bixe

She's a beauty! And I think the bottle cages are more than appropriate.

Can I come over and play?! Really nice, but then again, I'm a little partial =) How about a nice FSA carbon crank to top her off?

I think I saw this bike today while I was climbing Mt Baldy Road in Southern California. As nice as it looks it the picture, it doesn't do it justice! I saw it about 6 hours ago and I'm still not over it; I'm still drooling. It is one of the nicest bikes I've ever seen!
