I’m living in Saitama of Japan.
My English is poor, so you may not be able to understand my broken English.
Here is my new ride for 2006:
S-Works Tarmac 2006 frameset (Full Carbon, about 1200g w/head set bearings, 52cm, fork 375g@220mm steerer)
Dura-ace 7700 STI, BR, RD, FD, CN, CS (395g, 320g, 195g, 85g, 290g, 175g)
FSA Carbon Pro Elite Compact Crankset (530g, w/ 48T chain ring of 5-arm XTR)
FSA Plutinum Pro Ti BB (190g)
Fukaya Carbon Seatpost (<150g@270mm, <$50)
Nitto M-184 STI80 Handle bar (280g (HEAVY but stiff, and fits me & shape of STI))
Dixna Achilles stem 80mm (<110g, <$40)
Fizik Arione saddle(250g)
Bontrager XXX Lite tubular 2005 (1200g w/o QR, QR=80g)
Vittoria Corsa Evo CX Tubular (280g)
Speedplay Zero Ti (160g)
Total weight is supposed to be about 6.8kg, but I didn’t actually measure the weight.
The frame is very stiff, gives good “shock damping” feeling, and has nice paint scheme (I think :>). However, my bike seems not so light compared to other bikes on this forum.
What is the effective weight saving point ??
