Question for Pitt83 and Magnum!!!jptaylorsg

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.

Hey man,

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!
