Do you mean how did it make weight? All the components does look suspeciously light.

I wonder how well is the braking on a set of lightweight?

I have only been to two UCI event and have yet to see the weight in process. I was a participant in one (track) and the weight in was never to be. Just if it looks light then they will request a weight but if not that no need.

This course did not require much in the way of braking. I don't see why this setup would make for poor braking though.

I doubt there was weigh in happening. I wasn't in the elite race though so I wouldn't know.

I was just wondering what braking would be like in muddy conditions on carbon rims and TRP mags? I don't have any experience on such set up.

The Kuota Kross is superlight and has the best mud-clearance.,

Any know what the bare frame weight is on the Kross? Circa 1250 for something with a 56/57 cm TT?

Thanks.

That 6 kg'er is pure sex. I'd need 39 x 9 speed, that ring looks like it's 42 but wow.

I've been to a lot of UCI CX races (in the USA) and have never seen them weigh a bike.

Last year they checked tire size at every UCI race I was at in the USA. In 5 years of doing a lot of UCI events in the USA and our nationals, I've never seen a bike on a scale (for CX races).

They were checking tire size but not weight at cross vegas. The officials had this nifty little metal 'C' channel type pieces of metal that they slide over the front and back tire. Glad to know mine passed! - nervous moment...
