Must be without several things - doesn't looks like a really light build. After I started to calculate on my cross-bike I have realised that getting a bike under 7,5 kg really takes an effort!

well, if you want to split hairs, the seatpost is heavy and so is the seat, so you can save 100gm there.

What kind of tires are those.
Are these the ultra-lite white dugasts that i've been hearing about?

Yes.

The front LW is an older version (though this versio allready had a magnet in the rim).

Mit diesem Bike wird das Team Toyota/Nox bei der Cross-Weltmeisterschaft an den Start gehen. Atemberaubende 6,4kg bringt unser Crossfire WM Edition auf die Waage. Der Vollcarbon Rahmen ist nicht nur wunderschön, sondern auch extremsteif und superleicht. Eine Rennmaschine für Profis.

Eine Rennmaschine für Profis??? They talk like there exists no UCI weight limit :roll:

C a s r a n, I know you can see it is an older version of LW wheels by the valvehole, but can you tell me how you can see these also have a magnet in the front wheel? Is there a cosmetic difference between the versions with and withouth the spokemagnet? (not the red sticker on the rim)
Thanks

Well, there's no cosmetic difference, but as far I am informed, they started integrating magnets in the rim very early! A friend of me has the original LW set Ullrich rode in 1997 and 1998, and he was very surprised last Octobre to hear this allready had a rim magnet (while he was using a spoke magnet). :D Versions with the old valvehole mostly have this magnet allready.

Here is the problem I have with the laminated magnet. I have a pair of LWs, and a pair of zipps and a pair of Ksyriums. Before I got the LWs, it was pretty easy to sync up the magnet location of the Ks and the Zipps, for wheel changes, but with the LWs magnet being so high up on the wheel, this is almost impossible with the zipps. Does anyone else have this problem?

520 Dan, I've been thinking about that problem as well. Since I'm not yet using my Lightweights (a tubular still has to be limed on it) I wasn't coping with it, but yes, I'm seriously doubting about what to do: rising my speed sensor (thus I'll have to do it on my other bikes and wheels) or riding these LW with a spoke magnet? :?
