Who cares! It's a tt/tri rig and the badass factor way out weighs the gram penalty.

I'm not saying the Wright is a big deal, or denying how awesome it looks. But I really want to know the weight, I'm guessing over a pound for frame and bars...

I did take the weight before and will take it after as well. The Martini Shiv was about 1.5 lbs for paint on frame, fork, and bars.

Was it chrome dipped? I'm not aware of any other effective methods for chrome plating anything but metal.

No it's a speciality chrome paint. You see it used pretty often in motorsport helmets...

To my novice eyes looks like either a cosmichrome or spectra chrome job.
