Time for a new update and some weights... here is my Oltre finally identical to the Vacansoleil-DCM pro team bike with mechanical drivetrain as used in the first half of 2012.* The last addition is the celeste FFWD F6R tubular wheelset with DT Swiss 240s hubs.

Image

This was a custom build because the complete Bianchi team bike comes with celeste/white FSA K-Force parts (team uses red/white) and Shimano Dura-Ace calipers instead of the team's FSA K-Force.

2012 Bianchi Oltre Team Issue frame (55cm) = 990g (claimed; 1070g weighed with warranty booklet & cable guides)
Forks = 350g (claimed)
4 x Ti bottle cage bolts (celeste): = 5g
3 x Jagwire celeste frame protection rubbers = 3g
Seatpost = 190g (claimed)
Ti saddle hardware = 19g (claimed)
2 x Shimano ST-7900 levers = 374g
Shimano FD-7900-B front derailleur (34.9mm) = 78g
Shimano RD-7900-SS rear derailleur = 166g
Jagwire front derailleur adjuster = 3g
Shimano gear cableset = 71g
Shimano DA CS-7900 cassette (11/23) = 161g
Shimano DA CH-7801 HG chain (106 links) = 256g
FSA K-Force front caliper (incl. standard pads) = 137g
FSA K-Force rear caliper (incl. standard pads) = 139g
Shimano brake cableset = 140g
FSA K-Force Compact handlebar (420mm) = 220g (claimed)
FSA OS-99 CSI stem (110mm) = 122g (claimed)
Cinelli cork tape (incl. plugs) = 47g
FSA K-Force Light BB30 crank (53/39; N-10) = 453g
FSA K-Force Light BB30 crank (non-drive) = 139g
FSA K-Force bottom bracket washers = 2g
FSA BB-OS8200 ceramic bearings = 53g
San Marco Concor Racing Team saddle = 195g (xsilite rails)
Look Keo Blade Max carbon = 226g (steel spindle)
FFWD F6R celeste tubular wheelset (58mm) = 1355g (incl. FFWD skewers)**
2 x Vredestein Fortezza Pro TriComp tubulars = 564g (incl. valve extensions)
2 x Velox Jantex 76 Competition tubular tapes = 60g
2 x Elite Custom bottle cages = 83g
---------------------------------------------------------------------
TOTAL = 6.6kg

* From the 2012 Giro onwards, the team begun using the electronic DA drivetrain. The chain should also be the gold KMC X10SL. Team mainly uses white cables, but also black at times.
** Front skewer (100mm) = 41g; rear (130mm) = 44g

With a Polar S725 setup (incl. speed and cadence sensors = 126g) and a Topeak Micro Rocket CBT pump (fixed on frame = 79g), the bike is UCI-compliant at 6.8kg.

Is it just me or is this the least inspiring collection of bikes ever assembled in one thread?

It is just you, and going by your nickname, you probably need an independent eye assessment ;)

And white cables (to be a true Vacansoleil replica).

:smartass: I actually found this pic of Vacansoleil running black cables which justified - for now - using the original Shimano cableset 8) The gold chain will come soon enough :thumbup:

Those weights are interesting.

RIDE reviewed one and it came in at 925g bare frame and 356g for the fork.

I got to ride it too, holy smokes is it stiff. I loved it!
