Looks nice, and light enough without breaking the bank. I'd get some different cages to get it under 7 :) Old style Tune are on sale now, I find them reliable and very good looking.

Thanks for the thumbs up and advice, planning on changing the rear cassette for a Dura Ace one which should shave off 80g and get the bike under 7kg.
Dura Ace derailleur probably next on my list.

Lovely bike, I had the joy of renting a CAAD12 for a week, was amazed that a aluminium bike could be so nice. You even got the brakes the right way round. :-)

Cheers Lewn777 they are great bikes had loads of carbon bikes and trust me Aluminium is better. CAAD12 and Specialized Allez Sprint are both amazing.
