Great looking bike... and a smart build with solid components all around. I think the weight looks pretty spot on given the frame and components used. I think that frame is a 9R carbon frame, which isn't known for being low weight and as pointed out earlier in the thread, is definitely heavier than a Smartweld E5 aluminum frame. The components used are all solid, well-performing components designed to last, not super light, weight-weenie parts.

Enjoy it. Great bike and great pics.

Yeah it's a 9R frame which isn't the lightest but it's good enough.
Plan is run this a couple more years and then get a S-Works Tarmac (once they do a decent colourway).
