Thought Id share my two ever evolving bikes,
Image
My Caad 8 with Force, Rotor cranks (with conventional rings!) and DT 1450 wheels, sitting at 7.1kg's at moment as is not too bad i thought! Forks getting changed to easton soon to drop under that magic 7kg mark.

Image
My Kona Unit sitting at 8.5kg, not bad for a 2.2kg frame!, using Goldtec hubs for something different. This is my 8hr/12hr/24hr race bike.

My Cannondale is a 58cm and according to the weight in the list the fork is 425g, the Easton should be around 300g.

Love the road bike, but the Unit is neat, too! (I have brown one... might just weigh it, but with a Fox coil fork I don't think it'll make 8,5 kg :wink: )

Vey nice set up! I love the look of the Rotor components, and the red anodised bits look cool. How are they when riding?

The rotor cranks are good, they use a shimano ext bb and so far I have found then stiff enough, but havent had and crit sprints on them yet. I thought they looked a bit different to everything else out there.

Is that the slice premium plus? Mine came in at around 330g with race and starnut, cut.

No its just the premium, when I ordered my bike they gave me a freebie for the premium so went for that. Just gives me another excuse to spend money!
