Hey thanks for the :thumbup: s
I am 6'0" with a 33" inseam (is that normal??) Ah, who knows, I'm stuck with it. Basically I think of myself as tall, but with a slightly longer torso than you would expect--so I like a slightly longer tt. I ran a Giant TCR in 56cm, but with a 58cm tt, this bike has a more horizontal tt, so it measures 58cm seat tube with a 57cm tt. It seems to fit very well, and is certainly not too short. As I've gotten older (I'm 52 years now) I can't ride with my flat back position as comfortably, so a shorter tt is a more comfortable too.
As for a frame only weight - 975g for the 58cm. Patrick of Neo Cycles says the full production run will be about 50+g lighter due to some changes in the matte finish. There will also be a 1K weave option so I'm told, which will be another 50g lighter, so you might be looking at 880-900g for this size frame. Only time will tell, of course. And I won't be crying over the difference, really.

I have some fibrelyte chainrings coming, and Gravitas brakes on order, just to add some bling (and drop 100g I hope!) (So that's WW math: 100k for 100g...haha)

I didn't like the white accent on the FSA Plasma bar. This is what it looked like before:

so I covered it with a textured matte CF detail:

It feels good, too.

Haha, Patrick, you're always asking the right question! Its a 3M product I got for my car (makes a beautiful CF-look dash) and it's vinyl -- but designed for the exterior of cars (they called it wrap.) It weighs about 4gm for those pieces.
It has quite a nice, grippy texture to it--I thought it would work well on the bars. We'll see if it holds up.

Hello,

i love this bike, it looks absolutely harmonious and elegant! wheels, frame, fork, just everything goes together.

is this really a S400-frame? it looks much more expensive!

No this is a $1800 frame/fork. Its clearly very high quality.

The expander comes with the FSA Orbit--and contributes to the 100+g weight. Maybe there is a WW alternative?
The topcap was the lightest of all the ones I had (about 5 including CF ones).

The 108mi Tour de Tucson ride went very well this weekend. No issues with the bike at all--perfect! It rode like a dream, which is what I thought I was in around mile 50 but it turned to a nightmare around mile 100...haha. Not because of the bike though, just my tired legs.
