Nice ride!
I might have to get a 9.9 next year to go with my Superfly FS!

I don't think so since your stem is pointing towards the stars. =D

Not any more, flat bars and inverted stem, had just taken the bar and stem off my Top Fuel while I waited for the new bars, seemed pointless to swap the stem for a couple of rides!

Not trimmed the steerer though!

PSM, please, have you replaced any other parts except tyres, chainrings, and seatpost + saddle (what is obvious from the picture)?
That final weight seems to me amazing, based on 10.6 kg stock weight. But I´m new to this forum, so I may be (and I quite likely am) wrong :-)

Grips, tubes and clamp...

I changed Another tube after this Picture was taken. -35 grams. So 9,8. :)

Did you weigh it out with downtube & chainstay protector, BB bearings, headset bearings, bottle boss bolts etc. removed? That stuff can add some (sometimes suprisingly much) weight...
BTW, this is probably the main reason, why they don´t list their bikes´ or frames´weight. Not only it varies between sizes, it can also vary to some extent between two identical models.

I´m deciding between 9.8 and 9.8 SL, the SL looks better IMHO, has better, or rather more durable fork, lighter wheelset (Which I would probably replace anyway, so that´s not a big issue) and about 300 g lighter frame, but I´m not really sure, if that´s worth that 1.800 € of price difference. Probably I´m not that much of a weight weenie :-), but anyway, what´s your opinion?

Frame weight is most lightly for an unpainted frame.

9.8 is the most bang for the buck. Internal wires will "tick" after awhile I think. 1300 gr is ok för the cheaper frame.

Internal cable routing isn´t really something I would miss anyway... I´m just tempted by that FOX fork and those 300 g of weight saving... But that price difference is just enormous. I could buy a set of top-notch carbon fiber wheels and sitll have a couple hundred € left, so I´ll probably act raitionally and stick with the non-SL version unless I got some super deal on that SL one.
