thanks Mike!
not sure, reckon 20/21lbs, it's pretty light for a steel frame, the forks weigh nowt which contributes i guess!
rides really nice, and looks way better in the flesh than the photos show, paint-job is really nice, love the world cup stripes 8)

Looks great, but I have a question.
Is that a KMC X10SL chain? And an oval thick/thin chainring?
If yes to both, does the chain fit on the chainring ok? It's just that I've had a bit of trouble with one of those chains and a Superstar oval ring.

Cheers,
Andrew

Hi Andy, it's an 11 speed KMC (well spotted!) and an Absolute Black oval ring, no issues with chain pick-up, it's as smooth as 8)

Thanks for the info! It must be the superstar ring, which is a lot more oval than the Absolute one.
