520 Dan had asked for a pic of my Empella a few days ago. It is nothing great or particularly WW (actually a little portly, but rides well and I have no qualms about beating it up.)

As pictured, Bonfire frame has a 57 TT and the Empella carbon fork. A mix of Campy drivetrain - mostly old Chorus 8 speed. Wheels are first generation Ksyrium SSC's with Mavic cogs. Ritchey WCS MTB post, Era saddle, Ritchey Pro Road stem and Salsa bars. Ritchey tires. Avid cantis and Empella bar mounted levers. (The Avids are weak, but I put the Empella cantis on my Landshark CX.) The tape is Stella Azzurra, which is nice and comfy. FSA headset and an IRD seat collar. Time ATAC pedals. The cassette is a 13-26 and the TA chainrings are 46-39.

No idea what it weighs, don't really care. If forced to guess, I would put it at about 21 lbs.
