Looks excellent! And top weight!

Fork weight wise, weighed an Enve 2.0 and it comes in at 375g uncut. A 3T Funda Team comes in at 355g uncut, so maybe the 3T could be a consideration also? I have one on my Baum and it's fantastic. The red might also match the saddle....in addition to being a cheaper option.

Wow thats a big difference from the 1.0. I'v got 300g. uncut.

@Devinci You might also look at the ritchey wcs fork. I rode one for a while and I couldn't tell the difference between wcs and edge 1.0 in terms of performance, and they're both the same weight. It has the curved fork blades like the cannondale.

Given the 2.0 is the more robust of the two models, it's to be expected.

And not as if 375 uncut is a porker anyway.

thanks guys, I might have a look when I get spare money. God this baby would drop 200g + so easily with a decent fork and a WW brakset.

Havent ridden it yet, so I cant comment on how it rides. Maybe the fork does its job...

I'm loving the silver on the wheels! Definitely don't see enough of that around.

my masterpiece weighted in at 192g uncut. I then cut about 8 cm and saved 31g, the Ti bolts kit would save another 7 g


I have a trimmed masterpiece on my caad9 with carbon cradles and ti bolts and it comes in at ~135g

@ KH1

yup, as soon as the racing season starts......in 4 months :P

@ GZA

I want to order the Ti bolts, I am not sure about the carbon cradles, they are expensive.... I'll start with the bolts though

Very Nice....black bikes are very nice. The dirt does not show up on them as it does on black cars!

thanks for the info. I think I will wait for FWB to get their. Shipping to Canada is way to expensive on that website.
