A few changes. A new tubular rim for the rear wheel. The wheel now weighs 362 grams. I took 5 grams off the front wheel, it is now 258 grams. I took 5 grams off the campy record F. derailleur, it is now 36 grams, it still works perfect. I took a few more grams off the crank, now 299 grams. I put a more aero fork on. It weighs 227 grams. I have done a good 500 K miles so far with the changes, everything is just great. Again, this is bike I have rode for 10 1/2 years, ave. 2 to 3 times per week all year long, over many bad roads.

prendrefeu, Thank you. people can make light bikes but I feel if one does make a very light bike get out and ride the dam thing. I ride this bike a lot, especially uphill. There are limits to everything but overall this bike is very reliable and it works for me.

Awesome. I wish it had a smoother-looking bar tape, but the final weight justifies it.
