Sorry for the iphone photo, but after my Ellsworth Scandium frame died (never going back) I swapped all my race build onto my old 2001 CAAD4 r800. She weighs in at 16 lbs with pedals with the power tap wheelset :). Just put her through the paces at the Spy Belgian Waffle Ride. You could hardly tell she's that old. Still puts down the wattage! Need to throw on the climbing wheels and see how low she goes.
