I had not seen any pics of a Kharma and know others have inquired about these frames. I've had this about 4 months and have been pleased w/ it. I believe it is right about 15lb, it weighed 14.5lb on an Ultimate hanging scale, but think the scale might be off a bit.

That's a very nice build, Kevin. What wheels are those? Bontragers with Bold Precision skewers? 15lbs would be a real decent wheight for that build.

Enjoy your bike.

Kind regards,

Yeah, I'm a sinner. I switched to Campy two years ago and was already using these pedals. I'm happy with them, short of their weight, and have three bikes so it's hard to justify changing them.

That is a great bike!

Maybe black saddle/ribbon would take the stealthy look a bit further? Just a thought, it looks great as it is.

I first built it w/ black seat and tape, but I prefer the white for now. Here's a pic from before.
