A friend referred me over here when i started obsessing over the weight of my Orbea build, Names Aren and i have a 2007 Orbea Ora, Fulcrum racing T training wheels, Fizik saddle, Sram Rival crankset,shimano 105 shifting system,speedplay x1 pedals, profile design t2 cockpit. with an Easton ea50 stem, Profile design QS2 brakes.

I guess once i get it together over the next year i'll be upgrading and shaving grams here and there. The wheels will be the very first thing to get changed out.they are 1450 and 1250 grams with tires on.

looking for a sub 18lb ride but it still has to be stable enough for my 220lb frame and constant beatings from triathlons.

heres the picture as of 2 weeks ago, more parts on order and i'll update next week sometime.
