have you put it on some scales yet? I bet it's light. My Dyna Tech MMC frame (in non team colours) is about 1.5kg, so the team issue build should be pretty light.

It's great to see Adrian Timmis showing such interest. Top bloke. :)

How funny, i just read about the saab, copthorne hotels sponsorship. I live in the village that is between the two. Saab is along my road and the hotel is less than 30 seconds away from me and i play golf at the other which is another minute away.

That bike is looking great!

Reference weight I stuck the frame on the bathroom scales and it seems to weigh about 3lbs with the bottom bracket fitted.

I'm in the process of rebuilding the bike ready for Adrian Timmis to ride at the post Christmas meet. Here's link to this new thread:
