Not the lightest bike, but...

The guys at Baum tell me she weighed at 7.33 (w/o pedals) when shipped. Not bad for a Ti bike for a 94 kg, 6'5" rider.

Think of the weight and aero benefits of a cf platform at the rear too...

Am i the only one who thinks it's embarrassing that the lightest bikes made are still using chopped up Huret Jubilee rear derailleurs? Have we not been able to do any better in the 30 odd years since those were made?!

It's on then. This weekend, trikes at the ready. 10 minutes + 1 lap, winner takes all.

No dummy spits, temper tantrums or hissy fits !

Couldn't resist ! Mines around 7.1 kg. Hoping to get it under 7. Might even order some ti bolts for the bottle cage ! :shock: Alreadly spent $20 on a lighter green headset cap ! Will change the green on the handlebars - I don't think it goes with the rest of the bike.

Yea, but given application of the brake kills you, I still think it counts.

Besides, you can point out to the hipsters how their chan stretch and so forth denies them a proper connection to the wheel, and that they're just getting a dampened sense of what's really happening...
