if you understand Italian, there is an article on ciclismonline.it

http://www.ciclismoonline.it/edisport/ciclismo/Notizie.nsf/AllDocID/I5C1E2D430E505CDFC1256F400049FEFC?OpenDocument

on the roi website they say the frame weighs 1090gr. The frame only comes with the jeans graphics so I don't know about the 1150gr that piero said.

the fork weighs 335grams I presume uncut.

it comes in 49-52-55 and 58 all in sloping geometry.

the 1150 gr. is the weight which the dealer told me. he has weighed the frame in size s.
i don't believe the weights, which are indicated on hp.

ferrarista hai ragione. la grafica jeans è l'unica verniciatura del antares.

ferrarista is right. the only varnish in which the antares is sold is the jeans graphic.

hi,

I rode the bike two weeks ago.
It was a nice ride.
Pretty stiff and it handles well.
It also has an unique look and is light.

If you're looking for something special, it is a great bike/frame.

for any other questions about the bike and parts, don't hesitate to ask!

greetings marijn

yeah I guess your right. alot of companies print a lower weight than what it actually is so it doesn't surprise me. But still, it is still light and looks awsome. I mean i don't think anyone can tell the difference between 100-200grams.
