All I've got so far are some quick shots at the bike shop - still waiting on Conti 4000s tires for my D'Huez wheels (the SRAMs are headed for the wife's bike) and a Thomson Masterpiece post.
Weight as pictured is 15.63... add another 150g for the front brake. So it's about a 1/4 lb heavier than claimed weight on the website (15.59) - which isn't terrible. I didn't weigh the set of brakes but seeing 150g for the front leads me to believe the SRAM brakes that come standard are more likely Force level than Red.
I'll get a scale shot before the bike leaves the shop with the new goodies - I'm hoping to walk out under 15 lb and short-term goal is to get the bike to 15 lb w/ pedals and cages.
Well over the last couple of weeks I threw on the new Exogram crank to compliment the YAW fd I've been running. I've just gotten around to installing a DA cassette and KMC X10sl chain as well. Last night I also wrapped up my first wheel build! HED Belgium clinchers on Sapim spokes and Bitex hubs.
Quick photo with just the crank and fd
And with the new wheels, cassette, and chain
I'm inclined to swap it out right away for lizard skins but I don't want to be wasteful.
The stock saddle and post is only on for pictures - the clamp isn't even tightened. My straight Thomson Elite post won't work for my fitment on this frame so I'll have a new Masterpiece on monday to hold my Toupe Pro saddle... kicking around the idea of a Selle Italia SLR carbonio, though - and toss the Toupe on the rain bike. The stock post/saddle is HEAVY! Over 170g saved there alone.
Really tempted to swap my AR in for an F, every time I see a new F series on here it pushes me toward pulling the trigger. Good luck with the racing
CAAD10 Force 22, Quarq, Ksyrium SLR
LOOK 695 Light, Force22, Zipp 303.
I've been running white Lizard Skins for the last couple months on the Specialized and it's been very easy to keep clean. If the shop has more in stock when I stop in tonight I may just say to hell with it... though I'm tempted to go with more black accessories than white - we'll see.
And TerribleCadence, I was actually on the fence between the AR and F series! I really like the idea of the AR but I'm not in love with the looks... that is, until a new AR showed up in the shop last week
It's a good thing it was not in my size and my F showed up 3 days later!
I weighed a 90mm stem from a new AR and it was 120g... haven't had a chance to pull off the 100mm on my F3 yet though. The mid-range UHC post that came with it though is pretty porky.
