Total weight as weighed is 12.1 lbs
Ridden at least three times a week by myself, being 155lbs. This bike is built for reliability, durability, performance, and light weight. Every part in my opinion is durable enough for everyday use. Alloy cogsets, carbon chainrings, featherlight tires and other such items would drop the weight, but defeat the purpose of the bike being durable. With further improvements, I hope to drop below the 12lb barrier, with the current clincher wheelset. Losing the computer, and using carbon tubular wheels would obviously accomplish this easily, but going sub 12 is a challenge with clinchers!
I have an Ultegra/Dt/Mavic wheelset and I'm looking for some new wheels.
kb, the gloss top coat indicates a 2004 model bike. i was never a fan of the matte finish, but nevertheless, the 03 / 04 framesets are a super value for the money. i already have a pair of superlight carbon tubular wheels, which i reserve for special races, hilly centuries. no clincher compares to the ride of a sewup, i agree
so the mag rims are holding up pretty well for everyday use? please tell us more about them. oh, and your opinion on the schomoke bars.
i will continue to use them whenever i ride this bike. so far, they are doing well. perfectly in true. in hindsight, it would've been nice to get them built with cx-rays, but i like the revolution / competition spoke setup on the rear.
as for the schmolke bars, they are light and stiff. i really like the clamping area, which is alloy wrapped. i have damaged a few other carbon bars in the clamp area, even though i was following the manufacturer's torque specs. i feel very safe on these bars, and i think they are worth the money. in addition, they are unique
check out http://www.storckusa.com. i do not know if they are up and running yet, but bob peake may be able to let you know what is on the way.
the specialties t/a chainrings can be obtained from euro asia, who is the only importer of this line. you will need to go through a dealer to obtain these, as euro asia are distributors, and do not sell to the public. euro asia is located in ca

I believe Peter White sells TA chainrings/cranksets, direct to the public:
