Nice bike, but quite standard. Do you like the Ksyrium SL wheels?

Yeah, the thing about the Saeco team bikes is that they're awesome from the factory, which is part of the reason it was so appealing to me. The only things I ended up changing were the bars (easton EC 90) the stem (Deda Mag00) and the saddle (slr), so I dropped maybe 100 gm there. I also ended up going to the chorus cass for durability reasons. I do like the Kserium wheels, I wish they were tubulars, but they're good for training. I'd like to get a pair of AC carbon wheels and a good, light cass, cause that would probably drop my bike down to about 13.5 lbs, which is pretty good for how big it is.

I also need a 58cm frame, so I know it makes a difference in weight :?
