Well the weigh in has finally be done and ..........


Its actually quite disappointing :roll:

In this guise its 20lbs 5oz or 9339g

However with my (thank you Tony) 310 tyres fitted and a carbon cage ts 20lb on the dot or 9071g so getting there.

Having seen the bike above I am contemplating a carbon rigid fork :oops:
