Seems to be lots of 'Dales on the forum at the moment, thought it would be rude not to add another one.

50cm Cannondale CAAD9
Cannondale Premium Fork
Campagnolo Record Group
Soul C4.0 Clinchers
3T Rotundo Pro (Branded as Ergosum!?)
3T ARX Pro -17
KCNC Ti Pro Lite (cut - 110gm)
Look Keo Blade Carbon Ti
Selle Italia SLR TT
Deda Tre RS Tyres (the lightest one was 167gm)
Aerozine Ti Skewers
Karbona bottle cages
Also did some minor tuning with parts from Toronto Cycles

Total weight - 6.78kg (only have 5kg max scales so had to do it in 3 parts - frame and parts, front wheel, rear wheel)

Still playing with the fit so will cut steerer down a little more once I have a few more rides under the belt.

----------------------------------------------

6/01/2011

Steerer has been cut and now have Rotundo Ltd bars (44cm, get plenty of comments on small bike with wide bars, but they are perfectly sized to my shoulders) fitted, have Negative GSL brakes in black ordered, just waiting to arrive. Will post pics of completed build when they are here.

Target is now 6.5kg, should be pretty close with light tubes and new top cap/expander, the Cannondale SI unit is a boat anchor!

Thanks!

Hopefully it will inspire me to do some crit racing this summer (kind of now really, Sydney has been pretty hot the last couple of weeks).

It is nice to back on a nice bike again, I lost my BMC SLT01 in the Christchurch earthquake :( earlier this year so it has been a longish wait.

Dollars versus weight ratio.

I have plans to upgrade bars to LTD at some point in the future so will do the seatpost then (LTD) as well to match everything, the new black labelled stuff looks awesome!

By the way has anyone successfully removed the labelling from a KCNC seatpost, it appears to be etched?

I know looks are the last thing I should think about, but man that looks like the epitome of a racing bike :shock:

The long stem and classic drop bars look perfect with those Campy hoods.

Well done indeed!

That is sick, nicely done. I love small bikes, I think they're aesthetically superior - but I am biased. ;)

Looks fantastic, especially for such a small frame. Same bar and stem combination that I have going on my Felt tonight!
