Nice looking bike.

I took a stoopidly light carbon road bike around my LBS car park on Sunday. I have to say that riding on drops again for the first time in a decade was terrifying and I had no idea how to change gear...the brake levers were wobbly too! :wink:

Nice, the Rival looks cheap but works great, I put on some rothshek carbon pulleys on mine but forgot to weigh it with them on.

Great CR1 Pro there KeithB, loving the colour matching detailing.

I upgraded a few parts (namely Sram Red cranks, Stem, Post and Saddle) on the CR1 Elite, and was going to upgrade to full Red but used the money on going to XTR on my Scale! Choices choices.

I do like SRAM Red stuff. Perfect for your Elite :)
I have a pair of Campag Centaur calipers coming and I was going to put them on another bike but the black with red detail might suit my CR1 better and I think they are a hint lighter than the current 105s :D

Make sure you slap up pictures as and when you mod your Elite, its looking excellent at the moment but I think it will look amazing with some Red parts and some CF wheels :wink: 8)
