Great bike! Another nice bike after long time here on WW forum :D

If I should buy new bike now, it surely would be either Bianchi XR4 or BMC SLR01.

Martin, I'll try pull my finger out and write a mini review of the SLR01. If the XR4 rides as described - basically like the XR2 but uber comfortable - then the rational choice is for the XR4 over the SLR01. The SLR01 is one of the best I've ridden, but the XR2 is just a little funner to ride. Especially in hard situations like the Chop or saturday Coluzzi

I weighed a 50cm matte celeste frame straight out of the box and it was 1.12 kg. Thats getting into Cipollini territory! Unfortunately I didnt get a chance to weight the forks or seatpost. But I may be getting a 53cm frame for myself at which point I'll provide weights

I just got my XR4. The matte Celeste 53cm frame is 1007g (105g lighter than the 50cm frame I weighed), the uncut fork is 390g, and the post is 210g. Thats a total of 1607g - ~50g for the big hunk of steerer I cut off). I'll post better photos once I get the brakes and finish the build. I expect the build to come in around 7.4kg.

Part of me wishes I went for the gloss finish. It would be soooo much easier to keep clean. I can just tell the matte finish is gonna suck up grit and be hard to polish off. But imo the matte finish does pop a bit more than the gloss.

I think I might scrub off the 3T logos to clash less with the FSA kit. I should get different bars because obviously the red clashes with celeste, but at the same time, the K-force nanos are light and more or less perfect as is...

Is that 1007g incl headset? Maybe the 50cm was headset incl in this one not? And is that 390g fork weight before or after cut? Quid fork expander? included in the weight or not?
