I hope it will be quite quick, I'm hoping its going to be reasonably light too, I think around the 32-33lbs mark which I don't think is bad for a bike of this type?

That would be an impressive weight. Be interested to see how close you get.

Should be a cracking bike when built.

In the above pic it weighs 21lbs, so as I said I hope to keep it around the 32-33 lbs complete, I've got a few tricks up my sleeve to try and keep weight down. We'll see. :?:

9 speed is your friend in the lowering weight department!
