Any idea how much the weight is?
Thanks. The reason the brakes look so new is because they are. The majority of the parts on this bike are Ebay finds. I wanted to build up a modern classic bike with C-Record - and all of the parts that I needed could not be found at your LBS .
The bike weighs....get ready for it.....19.70 lbs. My Calfee bike it quite a bit lighter but this bike is more spectacular to look at (it rides smoothly as well).

1. Pinarello Sestriere Banesto color 1999 model with veloce 10V
2. Veinsteins Paris-Roubaix 2004 11th place frame build with Mirage 10V (I converted the Mirage handle to 10V)
Love the bikes
use them for touring, easy climbing , winter trainning or for bad roads rides, trainning on the trainner/rolls (you wont catch me with a carbon frame on a trainner/roller )
I strongly suggest owning a 10kg machine to appreciate the lightness of the 6.2 kg La roi (that I own)
The frame is tig welded. The carbon rear end is Columbus and the steerer 1 and 1/8.butted spoke wrote:That's a beauty KB!
Is it TIG welded or Brazed?
Looks like a carbon rear end and a !.125" steerer?
Any idea of the frame weight?
The guy who built is is Richard Kent but he doesn't build frames any longer. It weighs 1,700 g. The fork is Look HSC5.
The steel type is True Temper S3 steel, which I think is one of the lightest,
Im pretty sure it is lighter than ultra foco.
I only weight 135, so I have never worried much about flex of a bike. I like
the way it rides, but it is a custom fit and I am pretty sure most other bikes
I have ridden were too small. The S3 tubes are oval at a few joints so it
couldnt be totally lugged, but there is a botom bracket lug and a seat collar
Last season I got into a crash during and had to have a seatstay replaced.
No problem! Steel is pretty cool.
