Yep, I just tried them for a ride. I am still considering buying them. It's just hard. The aero weenie wants them, but the weight weenies want to keep the KCNC. I guess the only real solution is to build a TT bike next.

So should I try to get sub 13lbs again, or make it more useful and ultimate aero. I am thinking of going with the TriRig brakes once again, and possibly a power meter, and forgetting about sub 13lbs.


I never got mine below 14.5# because I wouldn't drop the SRM or heavy aero brakes. So I went all aero - even getting a fork from a P3, which is about 30 grams of drag faster than the Funda. I wanted to go with the Zipp Vula Sprint bars, but couldn't sort out how to mount the Di2 climbing buttons. Go full aero - it's faster. And faster is better, right?

Victoria is looking good these days. I love the shape of that fork. It looks more aggressive somehow. The paint on it needs to go however. What model fork is that, and how much does it weigh? You, and BMANX are seriously making me consider the TriRig brakes.

Fork is a Cervelo FK26. Weight is around 425g if I remember correctly. That's an old pic - the fork is all black now. And get aero brakes. You won't regret it!!!

I really dig that FK26. Might have to check with my LBS to see if they are still available in that color.

Could just use a black vinyl strip to cover the red stripe on the fork.

Nothing big on this bike as far as changes go. I did get a shorter dustcap for the headset, and I am going to chop the steerer shorter now. Maybe just maybe it will shed enough grams to get it back under 13lbs. I haven't weighed it in awhile, but it's real close.
