No I'll keep the TCR. I really couldn't say no to the deal that was offered on the FP7. I wanted either a Prince or a Paris Carbon. I couldn't get the Prince in the colour and size I wanted without going on a 3 month waiting list and the build price of the Paris Carbon was way beyond the price of the FP7.

That's an impressive weight for an alloy bike--especially given the components. Well done!

The frame weight is only 1074g so it is pretty good for a medium. It will be getting heavier in the near future as the post will be switched out for a Thomsom Masterpiece that I bought today, some older wheels as the AC350's will be going on my P2K as training wheels and I will have heavier tubes and tires. I also took the cranks to use on the P2K build so I have standard rings going on the new cranks unless I email Stephan at Fibre-Lyte for a new ring or two.

I think the finished weight after all the changes will be closer to 7000g but it is a winter bike after all. Would be great to have it just under 6800g but we will see.
