I'll add more input later once I get a few more rides in. But, my 51cm with no frame hardware came in at 817g and fork cut was 321. Built with Super Record, EE brakes, Fizik cockpit, Berk Saddle, and Bora One tubulars it was 6,000 grams on the dot. Other than my custom bikes, I can't remember the last production bike that I've ridden that has given me a grin like this bike did today within the first dozen pedal strokes.

I've got a heavy OME and really like the ride. IMO it's comfy and super duper stiff.

I'm 86kg, so I won't worry about frame weight too much until I lose another 10-15 kg.


I've since cut the steerer another inch, put my speedplays on and swapped for heavier wheels (Aksium Elite). It's about 8 kg right now.
