Great looking bike! Good to have another FDJ (or any other Lapierre for that matter) rider on WW's. We are incredibly under represented.

14 lb? I'm jealous. Is this the new lighter model? I've spent a lot of money to get below 13.5 on my 2011 with Red, and then my powertap adds 2 lb.

Looks great. Have fun with it.

That's what the scale said at the shop! The carbon tubulars have a lot to do with that.

The bike is 50/50 Sram Force and Red with titanium speedplays, 3T team carbon bars, and a Selle Kit Carbino saddle

I would have thought that the weight was closer to 14.5, but it is definitely believable. Mine (non-ISP) came in at just under 14.5 with Dura-Ace pedals, heavy cages, alloy bar, clinchers, etc. Some of my parts are lighter than his, but I bet that is offset by the ISP frame and tubulars. My frame also came in over 1000g, which I have to assume is pretty high for this bike.

Either way, it is definitely in the 14 lb. range, and that is awesome for a bike sporting a full Force group that was clearly designed to race and not spend time on a scale.

I guess I do spend too much time looking at scales, and both the bike and body weight never seem to move enough. :D

Still a great, good looking bike.
