I will do it, but that will be one of my winter project.
Maybe i will also try to do the clear coat of the frame again, i will need a can of clear for the fork, and i'm not really satisfied of my first clear job. Some place are fine and shinny, but on other place you can see a lot of waves (i don't know how to describe that).
This is also interesting to see someone who liked more the no logo version. I really prefer the bike with the logo, but this may change with the time...

i may be to wrong but i think that it will be below 6.8kg,
For the moment the bike is at 7.02kg.
The new fork is 100g lighter, and the stem/quill on the bike is about 300gr for the moment. I have a ritchey WSC on the way at about 105gr.
I also got some other little things in progress, new pedal, red rear derailleur, but for the moment i got problem with it (see the subject on road discussion)http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=116790
