yeah, when my brother gets back from his trip i'll borrow his digital camera. if anyone is wondering,with the zip ties and seat post clamp the frame weighed ~935 g. some future dream improvements which should get me under 13 lbs w/pedals and cages:

- enve 1.25 wheelset (dt swiss 180 hubs)
- either alligator or aican cable and housing
- sub 100g carbon saddle, either tune or a cheap one on ebay

best.

funny you should ask. i went on my first ride with the bike yesterday and had trouble with the pedals and cleats, but i realize that this was because of user error. i didn't familiarize myself with the mechanism of clipping in and out beforehand. i mistakenly thought that you clipped in by stepping down on the pedals like i did with my shimano's, then my cleats came loose and i forgot to bring anallen key, so i had to cut my ride short. however, upon returning home i actually read the instructions, tightened the screw to reduce the ease of the float and learned how they worked and i think i'll like them a great deal.
