Hi

I am looking for a replacement frame for a Cervelo S2(old model). I actually like the Cervelo, but I would really like to run 25mm tires, and have a frame thats lighter.

Planet X is selling the Viner Maxima RS 4.0 for a very good price. Claimed weight is 792g (have seen them measured to around 812g)
They are also selling the Viner Settanta wich also looks very good more aero atyle like the Cervelo. I asked Planet X about the weight, they claim 940 for the frame, and 500g for the fork (uncut) But I cant find any reviews or any info from owners, so not sure..
I did look at the Planet X EC130 but its heavier then the Cervelo, so feels a bit like a step back.

Cheers
Morten

Actual weight for a size Medium Planet X EC130 is about 1170 grams without seatpost etc. Not 1348 grams as described by Planet X. Fork weight is accurate though, 450 grams with uncut steerer tube. Take note, that the seatpost isn't compatible with carbon railed saddles (7/9mm).
