The clear coat and decals added 51g back on.

You still lost 8g, better than nothing, and the frame looks awesome now, well done. !!

I cleaned both bikes last week and when I found some free time this morning, I decided to pack up the bikes and do full photoshoots for each of them.

I had the Allez out for some races in the last 2 weeks...

2 weeks ago, I did the High Point Hill Climb TT, finishing 6th in my class.

This past weekend, I raced the NJ State Crit, Cat 5 race. I finished 9th.
