I bougt some Aerolite Pedals for the Stevens a while ago. As the Stevens still has no wheels i never could try the Aerolites.
So today i mounted them on the Litespeed and will take a testspin.
The Litespeed weighs 210g less with these pedals :)

Had some trouble with getting in the left pedal and needed to put some shims between the Cleat and the Shoe.
Than everything was working just fine. I like the pedals but will need some time to get used to them.
Today there was some sun and the ride was directly much more fun...and on this bike, i just love it

Just bought an almost new Easton EC90 SLX fork for this bike. Still do not know the weight yet but hope for a light version :)

Got the Easton fork today. Used but looks like new. With 272g the weight is nice for this bike
Looks even nice in the bike, just a bit to much red on it but theres red even on some parts and the frame so it still looks nice together
