Congrats on a very nice build, looks wonderful. Prestige also looking good, I have one of those and also dislike its weight, riding it is a blast though

Willy, how much does your prestige weigh? Mine is about 18.5 lbs. you're right they are nice to ride though, especially if you keep wheel/tire weight down.

Don't have exact weight, I recall something close to 10 kilos after changing seatpost for deda zero, saddle for prologo c150 and stem for deda. Interested in your wheel swap, where did you get it from if u don't mind me asking? How much lighter than the ultegra/ dt wheels that came stock?

The wheels I'm running are stans ztr crest and im running them tubeless. Was using racing ralphs but switched to Vittoria cross xg pros after a dramatic blowout with the racing Ralph's. My lbs, green bay cycles built them with chris king iso disc hubs... As I recall it dropped over a pound off the stock wheels. I will weigh them and get back to you

These weights are complete wheels with tires and skewers...

stock: 3.82kg


stan's ztr crest/chris king iso disc: 3.07kg


So it saved 750 grams or just over 1 pound, 10 ounces to make the switch. Huge change in how it rides (as you can imagine) by losing all that rotational weight.

Thanks for the question! Happy to give you my impressions.

I have not ridden that many different bikes and this is my first top-end level bike, so take my views with a grain of salt. It's more than light enough for me (better than I thought I would get), corners incredibly well, feels very solid, very stiff, surprisingly comfortable, and absolutely beautiful. A total dream thus far, but only just over 300 miles on it as the weather here in Chicago is just starting to become spring-like...

Need everyone's opinion! White labels or black on black for the superleggero stem? I ordered both during the long wait. Side by side showdown above!

I think the white labeled is better in this case.
