Can you give us a run down of the components? What chain ring are you using? How is the shifting and smoothness of the crank/front deraileur? Weight?

Very very nice BTW :thumbup:

Weight: Stem, SEATPOST.

Looks awesome. You could lose weight on wheels as well but they look tooo nice.

Seatpost and stem are on my shopping list also thought about skewers?
Any ideas of what to go for would be very good.
Cheers nick.

Tune skewers are the most functional of the superlight ones out, in my experience.

Very nice ride and good weight for a "normal" race bike (with no crazy light bits).

Looking forward to see how this one evolves...

To my eye the rims are too deep for the fairly skinny frame tubes.
Lovely bike tho!
