Looks like it will not only be very light but also very rideable. Nice.

Ye Old Balde One, I wanted to ask you about the BB. Do you have more information on it? I've been waiting on a backordered AC ISIS BB forever and am starting to consider other options. You have a website for Zerolite (cant seem to find using google). What is it's weight?

Very light and rideable is the plan....

www.zerolite.com is the website, but there is no info on the site yet, they say it's pending. It weighs 118gm without crank bolts which are supplied.

Did you buy direct from them or from a dealer? If so, how's their customer service? The only product they highlight on the website is the pedals.

I got mine from a dealer.

I have gotten pedals directly, and they shipped them out on time and always returned my emails promptly. Overall I was happy with the service and product.

Before buying my CFR Team the shop owner told me he had one frame returned and replaced under warrenty. Interesting discussion.

He didn't go into detail (over phone) but I'll ask him when I saddle up on Sat.
He sold me his bike and purchased another (at retailers prices).

Forgot to ask him but he did tell me that Scott replaced the frame and gave him some team clothes. Will ask him on Sat (promise).

Has anyone seen a Silver AX Lightness saddle? I'm thinking it would look cool with the silver graphics on the Storck and wheels with silver "carbon" bar tape.
