I'll bite.
I am no fan of predominantly black bikes, but damn if that ride does not look excellent.
And at 7.1 kg you have nothing to complain about - it looks fast standing still.
Tell us more about the wheels.

I like the bike and everything grungy in the back.

Really like that overall, but that seatpost looks quite odd.

Trying to get the bike at 6.8 with not that much big changes. Scale stops at 6.9 with old Cole Shuriken 38t. (1585gr w screwers) and Vittoria corsa elite 23mm.


And the 60mm wheels. got the rims second hand, believe they are old Hed rims. Laced with el cheapo Novatech light hubs (works fine for me) and sapim laser spokes.

Should not be too hard to get it down to your wish weight.

I know. But i've heard they are not that smooth..

I'm still searching for some fine tubulars with acceptable weight.
On the shortlist;
Vittoria corsa Elite 23mm/23mm f-r
Challenge Mirage 22mm/24mm f-r
Or latex: corsa evo cx 2 23mm/23mm

I used to ride Veloflex Extreme's but to be honest the tufo's at 140psi (lowest recommended) are just as good, can't really tell the difference in the ride quality other than the weight.

I'm using the Tufo's on Reynolds RZR's and 46's with no problems, used to get more punctures from Continental Comps.

Have you ever ridden a monoblock? I'd be interested in the shift quality!
