|Pitt83: What's your Look KG 461 weight? How's the comfort and climbing ability? What wheels do you have on it. (Thanks for the pic, but I couldn't tell.
Magnum: What bike did you decide upon? i followed your quest, but I don't think you ever posted the decision.

|Weight = 16.5lbs w/o water
Comfort / climbing ability: Excellent. Could also be due to proper sizing. Main feature which I hadn't counted on was the exact tracking. Would make an excellent crit bike.
Wheels: Velocity Aeroheads laced to Ultegra w/ 14ga straights. Colorado Cyclist for $200 / pair. Excellent choice for clydesdales. My MTB ones are truly indestructable.
You'd probably like the 461. I thought it was a great value for a CF frame w/o going above $2500 build.
Lendog bought one too; search for his posts or perhaps he's now just "Len"?

|Thanks so much! I would never dream of having a bike that light, especially with Velocity wheels. I'm definitely gonna test ride one soon. Good riding to you.|

|That's awesome! I figured at my weight that there was no way that a cf would be able to handle me for any serious length of time. Glad to hear that it is possible. BTW, saw the pic in the other thread. Sweet ride.|

Thanks for your interest! I haven't found a bike i'm in love with just yet. I'm just mind boggled at the moment. I want to get the best bike I can afford - one that will last several years, then after I've dropped some major lbs. and I'm still in love with cycling i will buy my dream bike at the time, whatever it might be.
hit me back if you have any other suggestions!
