I'm sorry to say this, but the KMC chain weighs significantly more than 230. My scale is only accurate to +/- 5 grams, but it said 265.

Still waiting on frame, BB, Saddle, Post, stem and wheels.

Everything else I have.

well, even with the weight discrepencies, it should still come in under 13lbs, so thats pretty cool, make sure you get some pics up of the wierd (more specialist parts) that make up your build.

What rim tape is 5g/pair?

Vittoria plastique is good, easy and 26g but 5g???

I know classfibre tape is light but 3 rounds weight like 20g/pair and less would not last in 8 bar...so I use Vittoria...

Tape is crap, but only weighs sub 5g. Good for MTB only.

I'm using Continental Supersonic Rim Tape, the lightest I know of.

ALSO, updated my build, cranks came in at 434g!!!

AND stay tuned, I just ordered my super sweet wheels, something you guys have never seen before. And weigh a scant 1270g!!! 8)

Soon I will have the lightest DA equiped ever! HAHAHA!!!

Superlite- people are asking for pictures.......why don't you just tell everyone that the list is just a dream......that no actual bike exists...but that maybe someday if you mow enough lawns that you might actually buy this "bike"?

It's not a dream, I have ordered all the parts, I'm waiting for them to arrive.

Bike won't be done until mid december however due to CR1 Limited availability. I should have every part except the frame within 3 weeks.

Like I said, I have everything except the frame, wheels, BB, saddle, post and stem. All of which (except frame as it's not available) payed and ordered.
