Virtually standard. I have changed the tyres for lighter ones but they are not in this older pic.

Well heres my road ride. Not the best thing in the world, I have been riding it for the last year and a half, and its been serving the purpose. My focus is XC, but I still do road. Will probably be getting a new Road bike sometime late this year or next. :lol:

Ok, here it is (another!) TCR 0. Highlights: EC90 bars, Syntace F99 Stem w/Ti bolt kit, Record Carbon Crank (03), Record Groupset (03), Rolf Prima Elan wheels, Conti Attack/Force tires, Cane Creek 200SL brakes, IRD cables, Phil Wood Ti/Mag BB, EC70 Seatpost. I know I can lose a bit more mass on the seat, but like the seat. This monster has about 1k miles on it but the wheels and groupset have well over 5k on them. Bought the frame on eBay for $900 and moved my old groupset and wheels over to this frame last December. It's about 6600 grams, not bad.

Note: I use a Garmin Geko GPS for my computer and really love it. You can get back home and dowload your route and calculate elevation profile, etc. Also, that thing hanging from the steering tube is a cuesheet holder.

my spec is posted here:

http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1515

12.1lbs, and that is including the computer, and clincher wheels with kenda kaliente iron cloaks. there are no bs parts on this bike such as alloy cogs, or handlebars that are only half wrapped with bar tape. 100% usable, ridden about 150 miles per week. i weigh about 154lbs. future improvements will have this machine below 12lbs, but without going the stupid light route.

with my american classic carbon 16/20 wheels, tufo <215 tires (again, no bs track tires or other thin as paper tires), it comes in at 11.7lbs.

what model is your Zipp wheelset? Are the spoke Sapim cx-ray? A friend of mine broke 2 spoke in just one month..Ain't good for training or recreational..


They are 404 tubulars. The spokes are Sapim CX-Ray and so far no problems at all. I can safely say they are the best wheels I've ever ridden. How heavy is your friend? I'm 154 pounds.

Very nice frame. Probably not the lightest one but looks durable. I have never seen seatstays like that. Does anybody know the purpose of constructing seatstays in this way?

Damn fine looking bike Mr Bruiser! How you getting on with Dura Ace 10?


What do people use for a decent computer and HRM nowadays. I use an old Rolex for basic time keeping but am thinking it would be nice if I could see more trends in my training.

Advice please!!

I have now got my BMC SLT01 sorted. The bike is Bert Grabsch's race bike from last season. It isn't light in its current configuration, but with my Record carbon cranks and ADA's on it, it should be OK.

It is the Team frame and the ride is very comfortable and it's a dream for climbing.
The DA10 is very nice though I'm not happy with the front shifter, I hope it will loosen up with use.
