So it was pointed out... over and over... that my 58cm Tarmac just wasn't the right size for me. An opportunity presented itself recently for me to ride for a local team this year (which I'm really excited about as it will be my first year of racing) and with it I figured I should heed people's advice and do myself the favor of riding a properly sized bike.
All I've got so far are some quick shots at the bike shop - still waiting on Conti 4000s tires for my D'Huez wheels (the SRAMs are headed for the wife's bike) and a Thomson Masterpiece post.
Weight as pictured is 15.63... add another 150g for the front brake. So it's about a 1/4 lb heavier than claimed weight on the website (15.59) - which isn't terrible. I didn't weigh the set of brakes but seeing 150g for the front leads me to believe the SRAM brakes that come standard are more likely Force level than Red.
I'll get a scale shot before the bike leaves the shop with the new goodies - I'm hoping to walk out under 15 lb and short-term goal is to get the bike to 15 lb w/ pedals and cages.7-20-2012 Update
Well over the last couple of weeks I threw on the new Exogram crank to compliment the YAW fd I've been running. I've just gotten around to installing a DA cassette and KMC X10sl chain as well. Last night I also wrapped up my first wheel build! HED Belgium clinchers on Sapim spokes and Bitex hubs.
