Finally got the new frame built up, frame is a size large 57cm and weighed in at 3lbs. I will repost after I weigh the complete bike for all who want to know. This replaced my Litespeed Arenberg and boy what a difference. It is smooth and very responsive. It just wants to go and go fast. Nice smooth ride, and very stiff bottom bracket for no flex yet as I stated very smooth. All I can say is WOW!

I like that frame. Very understated and very cool.

But I'd go red tires / red bar tape. Match to the decals. My $0.02

What a sweet looking ride! How do you like the wheelset? I've gotta agree with pitt - the red tires and bar tape would really set the frame off nicely!

Post the final weight when you can - I'm very interested!

The best weight I could determine was 18lbs. I agree with the red tires I just have to wait until these wear out as they were on my old bike. I just got the new frame and transferred the parts over. I actually like the bar tape the way it is. I am picky and like the kind without double stick tape and there is not much to choose from out there. I like the off the front. I hope to change the wheelset to a lower weight pair but these have been nice so far.
