You can't say weightweenies doesn't get some cool scoops...
Introducing to you bike-nerds, the first Olympia 849 in North America.
MSRP will be $3,495 and will be officially launched at Interbike.
We ripped the metal bits off and she weighed in at 830-ish grams in a size Large.

So, I would estimate sub-800 for a size small, which is great considering the Italian reputation for weight statements.
First ride was super positive - good stiffness, but really surprising smoothness and a calming ride quality.
Let me know if you have any questions, but deets are:
- Tapered front end
- Full internal cabling for electric or mechanical
- PFBB86 with alloy sleeve
- Full carbon dropouts
- Sweet "Otto 4 Nove" icon on top tube
- Matte clear coat for maximum weight savings
This build was with Dura Ace 9000, Pro Vibe carbon parts, Fizik Arione R3 and Madfiber tubulars on Vittorias.
Complete weight was 13.5 lbs with Keywin pedals.
Available for October-ish delivery and taking names for pre-orders already.
Sorry for my crappy photography but the professionals will post their own takes in about a month's time!
Feel free to send questions my way as I'm the only (lucky) one riding an 849 right now.
