the weight is 1100 gr. only frame, with the special varnish ("original jeans" it is 1150 gr.; i would say in the smallest size.
about stiffness i can't tell you nothing

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

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.
