Hey there, I have asked light-bikes.com for a CX bike gallery as well as this site and no one thought it was worth the effort i guess, cause they never responded to my emails.

So im accepting submissions of bikes under 18 lbs to be posted on my blog ( www.plusonelap.blogspot.com ) . Some true weenies might say 18 is still too heavy, but i think its a safe and still light weight.

Email me pictures of your bikes and a build spec including final weight, individual component weights would be nice too. Email to:

plusonelap AT gmail dot com

Jeremy-

I'm getting my new CX together, do you need individual weights like Light-bikes and Weighweenies or can I just do a shop scale for the overall weight? Thanks!

18 lbs = how many kilo's? And indeed, do you want the weight of individual parts?

i would prefer individual weights as well complete bike weight, but dont strip your bike down if you dont have the individual weights.

Send them in...lets see what you guys got.
