Hello, I've been out of the loop for a few years, no longer working in the bike biz, but still riding and racing a bunch.

My Ridley Damocles is getting up there in years, and I'm thinking it would be pretty easy to shed a couple hundred grams. I would like to do so on a budget.

Any suggestions welcome! Any upstarts like Neo from a few years ago? Used, new, clearance, frames, completes??? I'm open to anything. Clearance Ridleys from Comp Cyclist seem to be winner so far.

One caveat, the Damocles fits me PERFECTLY. I ride an XS even though I am just under 5.8. I had a 50cm CAAD 10, loved it, it just didn't fit. So similar fit to the Damocles is a huge bonus.

Edit: and a search will turn up numerous threads
