FSA Pro compact cranks
AMerican Classic 350 wheels, ISIS BB
Ultegra group

What a great deal for a light bike

It's not as light as you think. :shock:

First off, they weigh closer to 15.5lbs, my shop has half a dozen of these, and 15.5 was in a 54cm.

Seecond, the tires they come with are race only tires, the vittoria ultra speeds, so add another 100G for tires you can use.

Third, no pedal included.

In reality it is a 16lb + bike with pedals, even more with computer and cages.

But still, for the money, you cannot beat it's weight.

Yeah good value

I weighed a 54 in the shop yesterday with plastic flat pedals at 15.4lb

did your's have the Ac 350's on it? I'm not sure if they were orginal spec.

Web site said the frame is 2.4lb and the LBS said there is a rider weight limit on it as well.

Still for a budding weight weenie without all the $$$ for Tune, zipp, Campy etc. what a deal

Even if the frame sucked, worth it to strip it almost!
