[quote="dyna-ti"]Their website says its a little over 20lbs :? That about right and is there anywhere not too expensive could be swopped out for lighter ?
[quote]

9.3kg is about right for an £800 road bike , in fact it's one of the lighter ones at that price. It's also lighter than many at the £1000 point. Wheels and tyres are the obvious things to change but as the bike is 3kg lighter than my old Raleigh Scirocco and 1kg lighter than the Gios then I can live with that just now ...

was doing a little routes and ride research and stumbled upon this http://bearbonesbikepacking.co.uk/

for anyone with bike packing intentions it looks a nice little read, only had a glance so far but will return for a full read when I have the time.

Started the cycle commuting again - 3 miles each way now but pretty flat, an easy 15 mins in today's headwind. Feels good but I've only done it twice - it is still freezing up here and loosing the beard was badly timed. Hopefully the miles will add up and I'll be a cycling god once again (ok for the first time :) )

I use a Buff normally and that is enough but I haven't seen it since the house move and umK uses his all the time. Time for shopping me thinks.
