black tape would look better just put the bh tape back on for speed , its too bulky as i like thin fizik micro so it will be coming of this weekend.

weighs in at 6.54kg without pedals - i have light weight alloy cassette on which drops 100-200g and that saddle helps at 115g so not that hard to do with such a light frame.

they do a ultralight which is 725g for the frame which can make a very light bike . not sure about 4kg that is super light . to be honest my bike is light enough any lighter and i think it would blow all over the road. it is stiff though and the back end is totally solid when you stand up due to that massive bb.

I remember seeing somewhere that it was ever ever so sightly under 5kg but yeah 4kg is unrealistic! sorry i should have been more clear :/ yeah yours does look good :) i love big BBs like some cervelos have

Thanks mate and its one of those bikes that you punch the pedals and it leaps forwards , i think thats partly due to the back wheel been tucked under the seat post. never had so much fun. rode my wilier gt couple of days ago and it felt flat ,before i got this i thought that was near prefect for me ! nearest other bike i had that felt near to this good was my trigon rqc29 but still this is better in every way. check out the new BH g6 for 2013 - my wallets twitching again !

I have to agree with most people here - that is a lovely looking piece of kit. Love the chainset and BB junction, chunky and purposeful
