Cyclingjudge - that's just not fair!! This thread was about my bike, you can't just come in and out-do me like that!! joking :lol:

The bike looks stunning - what does it weigh with the lighter wheels / tyres? Glad to see the long wait paid off for you :thumbup:

Cyclejudge ... I think Tristan will agree with me ... you're going to love the La Cruz !

I've had mine since early June, and have done some easy trails / gravel road / road riding with it. So versatile.

In fact, I've gotten to the point that I'd rather ride my La Cruz instead of my Cervelo R3SL !

Yes, i´m very satified with it. Exept for the seatpostclamp and the length of the stem.
Actually the bike is very heavy cause of this Michelin-City-Tires, which are very very heavy (780 gr each :shock: . ) The wheels are rather light.
@sky guy1: Yes, i think i will love this bike. It seems to be made for me. :thumbup:
