Hello, been meaning to post this for some time now and finally got around to it. This was my first carbon road bike and bought it new in 2012. I have some 8,000 kms on it and have enjoyed it thoroughly. I don't know the original weight but I have over the years upgraded components as money allowed. I have replaced the seatpost, stem, and handlebars with RItchey components. I upgraded the SRAM Force crank to a Cannondale SISL2 with Spider Rings and upgraded the front der to SRAM Red as well as SRAM Red cassette. Most recently, I invested in a pair of Reynolds Attacks. Current weight is 7.23 kilos. Not bad since none of my parts are exotic. This will become my winter/trainer bike, now that I am in the process of building up a Bianchi Specialissima.

Good to see one of those pretty Katusha Focus bikes. The red white and blue realy work on that frame. You have done some real nice upgrades, have you ever considered rotating your bars down? From what I can see in the piture, bars and shifters aren't meant to work with each other like that. Please have a look at this vid: https://youtu.be/ecBsZ9B5iyg
