Hi, finally geting around to posting my bikes. This is bike 1 of 4 and I'll put up the others over the next week or so.

I got my first road bike, this Fuji Transonic 2.5, in Oct 2018 and started riding serirously in July 2019 when I joined a bike racing club. No races in 2020 so 2021 was my first year racing and did my first crit & first road race (while it was snowing), etc. this year.
I bought the Fuji as a full bike with 105 group set, alloy wheels, alloy stem & handlebar, heavy seat and some used 105 pedals.

I've upgraded every component of the bike except the 105 direct mount brakes, shifters and front derailleru as follows (Note, some of these weights are as advertised and some are actual):

Frame: Fuji Transonic 2.5, 54cm, PF30 BB, direct mount rim brakes: quoted at 1154g but I've never weighed it
