very nice. only thing im waiting on now is for my my superlite cranks, since i sold my team issue. how do you like the AC rear cassette hub? i think i might be getting spadas with cr-420s and sapim cx-ray spokes.

Are the dropouts on the slice fork also carbon :?:

Thanks Tim

Spytech! Just look at the photo, it will answer all your questions. Hubs are very nice, very smooth mechanism.

Franzam, theres no way the 42cm bars weigh in at 200g, mine are 40cm and weigh 169g! I've weighed 42cm at around 185g, but if you cherry picked you could find lighter.

Supersonics for everyday use! bad idea. There really a time trial tire and have poor handeling, not to mention they last around 200-500 miles. There not a tire to ride, there stupid lite. If you want really lite I wouldn;t go lighter then the Veloflex Pave. At 180g it's very lite, and has decent life for a lite tire, around 1500-2500. Personally I'm using michelin pro race for the season. I think they are the best for lightness and every day use. For the off season I'll be using Vredestien Tri comps. They are a bit heavy at 255g, but they are by far the best clincher tire out there.
