The weight seems a bit heavy . I would have thought it would weigh less .

What Artray said, I thought it would be under six with that build, Enve's included.

Awesome bike nonetheless!

coopercook - yes, had internal rear brake - didn't know at first that complete housing ran all the way thru - so, went thru 2 sets of housing with that mistake.
also, am getting black bottle cages instead - will post new pic soon.

a few posts about weight not being lower - don't know what to say - the clinchers run nearly 1,400 g - so maybe that's were most of it is. other than that, would be pretty hard pressed for any significant weight reductions.

unless any suggestions ???

Hell, screw it man. If you're happy with the bike and they way it is then leave it. Maybe lighter pedals or cables or something but it's still pretty awesome. I for one love it. Maybe not the white seatpost etc, but hey have that individual touch for contrast.

Nice job! :thumbup:
