I thought I'd get in the mix by posting my cross bike. I'm new to 'cross from road racing, here's my first 'cross bike, it's lighter than I originally expected (especially for a totally random mix of parts), I could definetly see this thing getting around 18lbs (8.2kg) w/o too many changes...
Frame: 2002 Empella Bonfire 54cm
Fork: Bonfire Aluminum 1"
Stem: 3T The Stem
Bars: 3T Prima 199
Head Set: Campagnolo Record 1"
Seat Post: Oval Concepts Aluminum
Saddle: Specialized Alias 143
Wheels: Performance Advanta
Cassette: Shimano Ultegra 12-25
Tires: Tufo Tubular Clincher Prestige 30
Breaks: Avid Shorty 6
Cranks: FSA Gossamar 48/38
Rear Derailleur: Shimano Dura Ace 9spd
Front Derailleur: Campagnolo Veloce
Shift/Break Levers: Shimano Ultegra
Pedals: Crank Brothers Eggbeater C
Other: Third Eye Chain Catcher
Total Weight: 20.2lbs (9.2kg)
It's my first cross bike and I've already got my eye on some key upgrades... carbon seatpost, better/lighter wheels, single chain ring, carbon fork (easton ec90 cross maybe?), ti eggbeaters, hehe
What is a WeightWeenie Weight for a raceable 'cross bike? I'm sure we could get pretty light w/ carbon cassettes, carbon chain rings, etc... but that's not very practical...
