Weighs less than 10 lbs? Maybe 10 KILOs?!

The reflectors are a nice detail- very aero!

What a useless bike- frame isn't "legal" and those god aweful wheels. Besides, you could build a Martec or BP with the exact same frame for a fraction of the price.

Not to mention it smells like a scam- "expatriot" ? Nice touch...
I thought it was either/or type question nmBrianNYC

Seller is clueless as to the market value of the bike!

Bike itself is Fugly!
Not worth the money!russw19

And the seller hasn't a clue... he/she states it as "less than 10 pounds" for the bike.... maybe less than 10 kilos, but those frames weren't exactly superlight... just moderately aero.

Fugley and rare?wspokes

I disagree with the rare part. We sold 3 of these model bicycles years ago when we were a Giant dealer. Not Rare. if so, we sold half the rare stock...haha. Ugly, yes. I can say that they were very nicely made and had a good deal of comfort and speed for an inexpensive TT bike set up.
Fugly. Love the headset reflector. nmIan

I have ridden one of these before, and the frame and wheels are 10 pounds. The wheels are tanks. This is five year old technology here. I don't think they even retailed for that much new in the 90's. The worst part was they set it up on road geometry, so the tri guys won't touch it since you can't get a forward position easily on aerobars. What a joke.
LOL...less than 10 pounds<-- maybe on the Moon! nm.russw19
