12lb. and some change...Well, it is built up as a SS, but the weight is still pretty impressive, given it has no real "weight weenie" parts in my opionion. Alu stem, stiff post and dual chain guards. This particular bike was made purposively for the SS nationals this year. Best riding CX bike I've ever been on, very compliant yet super stiff. Very comfortable on the bumpy stuff.

Great looking Bike.

Where did you get the front chainring set-up from? Is it all carbon?

Yes, it was custom made for the Q-factor/Clearance and chain line on the bike.

The sizing of the chain along with the guide and cog were made to fit perfectly, no tensioner is needed.

Who made it? Fiber-Lyte?

Is there any reason that wouldn't work in a 1x10 set-up?

I guess you don't have to worry about the downtube cable routing. :P

Awesome bike. How do you like the wheels?

Awesome! Although if you don't consider those wheels and that crank "weight weenie" parts I'm really looking forward to seeing you put a lightweight bike together!

Yeah...that front ring isn't exactly non-weight weenie. :) Great build!

haha.. I guess what I meant was that it doesn't take anything super exotic (AX, Tune, Schmolke, or sub-kilo wheels) to make it light. Keeping it sponsor appropriate and durable was more important... however it would be fun to see one at under 10lbs.

Simon, Yes - they are Euro X mag's with black hardware. They are custom spec'd like that for us from TRP.

This is the first bike I've put up in a long time. I'll snap some pics and put them in the gallery later.
