So after riding my caad10 during last winter, I decided to buy a dedicated winter bike with fenders this year. I found a very good deal on ebay so I ended up with a Focus Paralane Ultegra bike. I did a few modifications, but currently it's mostly stock.

Weights 8.5kg (18.7 lbs) as shown, with fenders, pedals, garmin mount. Detailed specs below the picture. Given that I used quite heavy parts, I think it's a respectable weight. It can easily go down under 8kg with fenders, power meter and 25mm tires.

I only did a super short test ride and the most striking thing about this bike is the extremely tall headtube. It also felt like a little bit of a tank after my supersix, but in this case I think it's a good thing.

Image

Frameset: Focus Paralane Size S
Fenders: Stock Focus Fenders
Front / rear derailleurs: Shimano Ultegra 6800
Brakes: Shimano BR-RS805 (160mm front / 140mm back)
Shifters: Shimano ST-RS685
Cassette: Shimano Ultegra 11/32
Chain: Shimano Ultegra w/ quicklink
Pedals: Mismatched Shimano 105 / ultegra pedals
Crankset: Ultegra 6800 - 50/24 - 170mm
Powermeter: Pioneer right side only
Saddle: Specialized Toupe Pro 143mm
Stem: 100mm / Zipp Service Course-SL / -17deg / Beyond Black
Handlebars: 38 c-c / Zipp Service Course SL-70 / Beyond Black
Seatpost: Focus stock seatpost
Wheels: DT Swiss r23 spline disc
Tires: Schwalbe One 28mm
Innertube: Unknown stock
Bottle cages: Tune Wassertr├Ąger 2.0
Bartape: Fizik Superlight
Garmin mount: K-Edge Pro mount

EDIT: The fenders add around 400 grams, so without fenders it tips the scale at ~8.1kg (17.8lbs).

GREAT bike for the rain & the winter! :thumbup:

I also was looking at the Focus Paralane for my rain/ winter bike but I wanted to have a geometry similar to my road bike and went for a BMC Roadmachine 02 with the low head cone and a slammed stem (http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=148608 . I also have some fender mounts and it is just awesome to ride with full fenders/ mudguards.
