That measured or manufacturer's quoted weights?

What size is the frame?

Hi thebatman,

:welcome: to weightweenies.

Nice rig you got there. :beerchug: seems ...eeeerrrh, light !!!

Along the way, you forgot to mention a few parts... (tubes, handlebar tape and plugs, headset, cables and housings, fork expander and top cap, etc...)... ;)
150g for a Ritchey Comp bar ? Really ?
1100g for the frameset (including fork) ? really ?

Louis :)

if that bike weighs less than 8kgs i would be amazed.... sorry, but as already said, your numbers just don't add up at all.

lovely bike though... a really good strong budget build on a really good frame. well done.

...and I would have expected "the batman" to be riding a black stealth rig.
So dissapointing. :wink:
Bike looks solid. Nice job.
