I saw this ont he Campy-only website http://www.campyonly.com/images/modbike ... 1_1024.jpg

Its gorgeous, I think it may be a top carbon, but its definitly 04 record and (again with the confusion) either ADAs or lightweights.

The wheels are Lightweights.
On the closeup you can see rests of the white Lightweight logos, which were rubbed off.

Also, the front wheel has a magnet, ADA's have magnet embedded into them, so there would be no need for a magnet.

either way, the guys bike is gorgeous. Assuming he paid retail, the whole thing is easily $10K, and (depending on size) around 14 lbs low, maybe 13 high, without getting into silly light parts.
Does anyone know anything about the fondriest Top Carbon? I haven't seen any reviews, and even the fondriest direct website didn't list any reviews. The manufacturers claimed weight for the '04 model is 940gm. Any info at all?

From my experiance Fondreist frames are usually off of there claimed weight by quite a bit. I've weighed the several P4's and all of them were over 150g off the claimed weight.
