Hi,

A friend gave me this frame on the right time, I had enough pedaling around the city on fixed gear bike. I don't use my car often and most of my life I commute by bike. I love it now when I can change some gears during the ride and the weight issue, my fixed bike was chromo 13.5 kg bike, this one is only 7 kg..

The spec:

Frame: 2008 CAAD 8 54
Fork: Cannondale Premium full carbon
Stem: FSA OS115 size 110
Bar: Ritche WSC aluminum
Shift: Shimano XT 10s
Brake lev: Shimano V-Brake (think it's Acera)
Brakes: Ciamillo titanium
Front wheel: old Dura Ace 7801
Rear wheel: Bont' X-light
Rear Der: Shimano 105
Crank: Dura Ace 7900 with 39 ring
Cog: Dura Ace 12X25
Seat post: ?? carbon
Seat: Fizik

Weight: 7kg

I can shave some weight, dont see why, but I can do that easy
