Storck C0.9, Crumpton, Parlee Z3c, Calfee Dragonfly...which one and why?

The idea is to equal or beat the weight of the Giant show bike with better functionality for those hilly long rides :twisted:

Your not gonna beat the weight of the giant showbike's frame and find a better one within 150g of it.

Unless of course the TCR Advance really sucks, but Jan's gonna be riding it, so I wouldn't count it it.

The Scott didn't make the list because of it's nonavailability in the US.

I want to try to beat the weight of the bike, not the frame (but a project like this is going to take counting every gram to a new level!) :twisted:

Event the CR1 is around 90g heavier then the TCR advanced. We just gotta wait this one out though, until one of us get our grubby little fingers on one. :wink:

Is this bike for you Ye Olde, or just a project? Aren't you pretty tall? How are you going to beat the 50cm Giant, with your size frame and 180 cranks, etc.?

This is going to be for me to ride. It's the final part of what I've been looking at doing and talking about - I have the "spare" bike done and everything ordered I don't have already (frame and one wheelset), and now I'm working on the final beast for the CA Triple Crown, Climb to Kaiser and Spooktacular.

So in the C0.9 I will need their "59cm" frame (it's sloping) and yes, 180mm cranks (probably FRM Cu2 ISIS).

You hit on what would make it really cool, me equalling the WW show bike for the vertically challenged (in comparison), with a real world bike (capable of being used for the CA Triple Crown) sized to fit me :twisted:

My goal would be to get within 1/2lb.

Is your spare bike the "FRM"? How long is that taking to get here?
Very cool, and good luck. You said C0.9, are you going with that?
Are the Storcks available fairly quickly through Storck USA?

No I decided on a Spada, he's building me one with U2 tubes and Deda carbon seat and chainstays.

I think I'm going to get a C0.9, I was told they are available shortly.

Because the Scott frame isn't available in the US.

I got passed a build list on the C 0.9 showbike Storck built for last years shows, it was 4.567kg :!:

I know a guy who saw the thing, but that was a show bike, carbon rings and such.

Besides, wait till May and get the TCR advanced, you could take another 180g off of that! :twisted:

Yes, but if I can make that weight with real world components.... :twisted:

I can't wait until May, Triple Crown starts April 17th. and I have Hemet Double as a warmup on the 3rd.

Does anyone know the seat post diameter of the C0.9? I can't find it on the Storck website anywhere.
