My old Giant Glory was admittedly a firm favourite too but its considerable girth often held it back.
Out of the box/van, the Horse weighed in at a shade under 44lbs which although a lot leaner than the Giant, was improvable.
Sundays have a bit of a cult following for their weight loss potential. After scouring the forums and checking out one of last year's World Cup bikes, I realised that the magic number was the mysterious 38lb mark. These bikes were either fully titanium/magnesium'd up factory machines or stripped and polished one season wonders so I set my sights at a little more practical 40lb.
Well, after an afternoon's spannering, I decided to get the digi-scales out and have a butcher's at what the current weight-of-affairs was. I reckoned it'd be just over 40lb but to my surprise and joy it's just crept under. Sound!
No stupid mods, no compromises or ultra-bling extravagances, just a well-thought out spec that works for me!
