Kingtom: with a pair of custom Zipp 303, bike weighs in at just about 15 Lbs, not bad for this kind of rig.

Could bring it down to 12 but then again I already own something far lighter, so would not need it.

As a weight weenie I find it difficult to stomach, but I think this bike climbs better than my light bike. Time will tell, maybe it's just new bike enthusiasm

It is a Giant TCR carbon, but sadly it is on the blocks right now. Bought a carbon back plate for the Shimano derrailleur, this thing worked fine for a year, but on monday the chain skipped over a bump and seeing the carbon plate does not have the bent claw like a normal plate...

Well the hanger plate failed like it was supposed to and the Derrailler flew into my spokes, $@£# happens

Ouch, can you saw "chain saw"?

Had the same thing happen to my velomax's under a hard shift, chain went into the spoke, and ohh, I got sick. I feel your pain. :(

What kind of wheel did it happen to?
