Yes I confirm the weights.
I have weighed personally the components.
I have still not weighed the campagnolo's components. Monday I will have the data.

hmmm, if i am correct, i dont think you can use that fork on the scott frame, easton ec90 forks only come in 1-1/8 not integrated. am i right?

and you should think about the kuota viking integrated bar, its lighter.

here is a review of the bar: http://www.pezcyclingnews.com/?pg=fullstory&id=1622

EDIT: oh hes already getting the bike in the mail... sorry i just looked at the specs. but am i right about the fork?

By the way nice bike.... i would love to have that frame. i envy you.

The fork is the new model produced by Easton for 2004
http://www.eastonbike.com/COMPONENTS/fork.ec90-SLX.html

I have weighed personally the fork.
:shock: The fork weights 299-300gr uncut (300mm steerer)!!!!!!!!!!!

I have already bought the RAM. It's a good product.

In this case the weight is not fundamental.
I have an identical thought for the seatpost.

I think that the stiffness and the security (for the seatpost and handlebar) are more important than the weight

i have seen the fork, but i did not know they made it integrated is what i am saying, and no where on the site it says its integrated or that they make an integrated model. and the scott frame uses an integrated headset, so you need an integrated fork. if i am wrong please correct me.

the review says the kuota bars are pretty stiff, i was thinking of selling my deda's so i can buy them. but read the review i posted on top.

The real weight of the Kuota viking integrated bar is 340 gr (11cm x 42 cm c/c)
It 's 40 grams lighter respect the RAM
The Cinelli Ram is most beautiful :wink:
