That's very classy in a timeless and understated way

Something for my alloy Cyfac to aspire to both in terms of weight and looks.

Thanks everyone for your compliments.

It's just fun to ride. I could have gone lighter with some more carbon or ultra-light alloy but I think it would defeat the purpose. Plus I like knowing the bike is one of the few over UCI weight at the road races I compete in - gives me extra motivation to beat them all :D

Now all I need is a straight post and a chop on the fork steerer then it should be pretty good.

OH and a MASSIVE +1 for the Panaracer tubulars. Raced them on a road circuit with a 10km gravel climb and they didn't skip a beat. They roll beautifully and grip in all conditions I've ridden them.

They were a bit of a punt but I couldn't be happier and well worth a look IMO

As someone else asked, do you know the frame weight?

I did weigh most parts to list here but I've misplaced them. I believe the frame was around 1400g and the fork 350g
