This review suggests a weight of 1270g for the 58 / XL frame and 490g for the fork.

Nice Wilier, how do you like those wheels?


I loved them. They look great, ride great, and my brain at least tells me they got some pull in the draft. However... I'm already thinking about something else, lighter. Perhaps making the jump into a full carbon tubular, or trying a full carbon clincher. I'm just not sure it will be worth the upgrade. I'd say I jumped on the aero bandwagon too soon without a lot of research.

Reason she's heavy is those wheels. Stick the SR on this with lighter wheels, perhaps Cosmic 40c?


It seems people on WW don't like those wheels. They look stellar, but are only a bit lighter then my current ones and really... it seems like the same wheel except with some carbon over the braking surface to make it look like a full carbon wheel. Worth the upgrade..?


On a side note, I think I am taking a totally different route and picking up a china frame. These things seem too good to pass up. We'll see how it works out!

I will always have this bike as it sits now, but with Fulcrum Racing 3's. WHEN (it'll happen eventually right?) the China frame breaks, all the good stuff will go on this guy. I just really want to try a light and stiff frame.... :noidea:

A very simple maneuver you can do to get it looking slightly more "pro" for exactly $0 would be to align the wheels are tires. Shops will always have the presta valve hole in the wheel aligned with the tire insignia (functionally it allows for more easily looking for the source of flats).
