Does anyone have one?

I had a 2011 Litening that developed some cracking around the BB. They used an alloy BB section with carbon bonded to it. I returned to store who took some pics and sent it to Cube. Long story cut short they replaced it with the 2013 model frame.

The literature says it is now fully carbon and no alloy areas. It also says they dropped the weight to 860g. I took delivery of the new frame but never weighed the complete frame and fork stupidly.

Hoping to get some pics when it is returned to me this weekend.

This is one of the latest pics I have of my old setup. Please excuse white tubs which have since gone and the clip ons which were being used for a Mountain Time Trial I was doing the next day.

It should be fairly similar to this old one but I'm hoping a bit lighter, this was around 7kg if i remember correctly. Only difference should be a new seatpost - zipp speed sl and a cut steerer. This build is occupying me whilst I recover from a broken collarbone :(
