It's actually about 14.3 lbs as shown, 13.9 with the Alchemy/Stan's wheelset, and 12.9 lbs with the AX Lightness/Dash wheelset. So while it's not going to win any lightweight records, it's still pretty light!

The comfort part is very important, though. I'm not incredibly fast, but most of my miles are on rides in the 100-200 mile range. I firmly believe that, unless you're a pro, once you start getting over 60 miles or so comfort becomes incredibly important.

This is such a crazy awesome bike. Everything works. The Brooks looks a little strange at first, but somehow, I think it fits. Maybe just because it's quirky. I don't know. Either way, this bike is so cool that it doesn't matter.

Sup A-D! Nice Parlee.

Regarding the Enve 3.4's, they are clinchers, the hubs are Chris King. I just put them on the bike last Saturday, and then I went on a business trip, so I only have about 100 miles on them.

My impression so far is that they are wonderful wheels. The only thing I can say for sure is that they brake as well as aluminum rims in both wet and dry, which I think is pretty remarkable. I'm running 25 mm Pro Race 3s with latex tubes (not sure if that's a good idea or not yet).

My first century ride with the new wheels is tomorrow, I'll have more to report after.

First off - I love it!

But why is the bottle cage on the seat tube so far down?
(...this is not the first bike that I've seen like this ...)

Aesthetically it's not how I like cages aligned, but it's not my bike!
still if you have a bad neck, it seems a real stretch ?

Is there something that I have not considered?

Anyway - overall beautiful bike - congrats!

Hmmm...not something I thought about. If you look at Rob's other bikes on his website, all of them have the bottle cage pretty far down. Aerodynamics? Lower center of gravity? I don't know but I'll ask for you.

Frankly I didn't even notice that it was lower than my other bikes...it's easy enough to reach while riding.

Great bike.
What is the steel tubing, in particular the ISP?
