Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

That's awesome. My tricross frame is on order. Hopefully it'll make the sub18 cut and you can post on your website :wink:.

I would say the weight is about right, maybe 200g more...

Finally Specialized makes CX Frames again...!

quantum do you have any more pics of your red tricross? Yours was the only red I've had the chance to see. The spec website doesnt even have it. Is it built up btw?

it's done.
I've since replaced the wheelset with Ksyrium SSL tubulars with Tufo Flexus tires + the new DuraAce crankset and SRP Mr Grumpy brakes.

JermeyB, Your weight is probably within 5-10%.
Mine weighs 16.13lbs....to be exact.

sweet okay quantum, thanks for the pic and info, mine is 56cm so will be heavier than 1450. Did that include the headset?

the ano version should be a little lighter than paint, but i really do like that red. bike looks great.

thanks
jeremy

EDIT: im using the bolt ons because i have a pit bike and its quicker to switch bikes than switch wheels. i might upgrade to the m2 racers when i get some money.
