Cheers Rich!

Oddly enough I was thinking that last night. Not sure what to go for though

If it'll clear a 26c tyre and you can find a dealer, I'd go with Compass Cayuse Pass Extralights.

Ta. Will take a look.

Any thoughts on the new Corsa Graphene? The anthracite ones could look nifty.

Some final changes just made this last week.

Bars changed for 3T ErgonovaTeam Steath carbon bars
Seatpost changed to Ritchey Superlogic carbon
Wheels changed to Campag Bora Ultra 35's (I'm running a pair of the 50's on my Colnago so this allows me to swap wheels between the two without faffing about with pad changes, brake set-up and so on). These came in at bang on 1360g for the pair (the Mavics weighed 1567g against a claimed 1450g).

"A thing of beauty" and under 7.5kg now I guess?
Wonder what tan wall Corsa G+ would look like...

Thank you. It's a lovely, lovely bike to ride

I haven't weighed it but I'd think it might sneak under that now....it's ever going to be the lightest but I'm 83kg and it was designed for ride quality over anything else.....

Mmmmm. That's got me thinking....
