Wheels are considerably lighter weight than I expected / than Xentis publishes - was discussing this with someone a few weeks back, from the top of my head they came in at 1380 grams the pair - with one layer of glue already applied. It's the frame +fork+seat post which is porky at 1375 grams. This was never a WW typre project though.

As an aside, on the Bottecchia website, they quote frame sizes which are exactly 20mm too short (for effective TT measure) Foretunately the vendor put me in touch with a previous SP9 frameset buyer who pointed this discrepancy out to me - so I ordered one size down than my original plan.....

These wheels have been a long time "want" for me and have become a ridiculously expensive exercise when I discovered the original Mark 1 rear did not accomodate 11 speed cassettes..... :oops: I am yet to roll them..........tomorrow looks good

This bike will also run a pair of Corima Aero+ 47mm with gumwall Vittoria SC's so we shall have to see what it looks like fitted up with Corima wheels....... :D

Why would you take a wicked looking stealth machine and put baby blue bottle holders on it? :roll:

Funny you have noticed that. Those holders are for my son's bike. I ordered mine overseas and will be fitting them as soon as they arrive.


No!!!! I actually seriously liked the blue water bottle holders on the stealth black. :(

Ah well, guess it'll be all black black black once yours come through.



Blue cages taken out and replaced with Carbon. I only have the CatEye highlight now.

Just purchased my first road bike. A fuji sportif 1.1 I got it a week ago and have been riding it every day. Awesome feeling being on the road on a nice bike. Not as flash as some of the bike on here but.
