Hi guys, I just completed my 2011 Velocite Magnus bike project. It weigh 15.2LBS without any fancy carbon wheels. The Campy Shamals Two-Way-Fit wheels are pretty nice too. The bike consist of a mixture of Shimano Durace, FSA SLK, Velocite carbon parts, with a Selle Italia 125g saddle and Speedplay Frog titanium pedals. I love the raw look of the high modulus carbon fiber frame without any fancy cover wraps.

Also attached is my 2009 Wilier Cento Uno in the European yellow color. It is also a 15LBS bike. Great colors, reminds me of a blooming wild flower. It is a real chic magnet.

Both bikes are a joy to ride, stiff and snappy as purebred race bikes should. For longer distances, I would probably take the Cento Uno, but for shorter rides and competitive sessions among friends, no doubt I would ride the aggressive Magnus. Enjoy the bike bling... :thumbup:
