Stonking build. I love it. So have you taken it for a spin or just get it built up?

What do you reckon it weighs all in with that nice kit? 23lb?

Just built up today. Not well enough to ride :( I'll try and take for a little pootle though sometime ;)

I think you're about right at 23lb ;) Which is good as KHS quoted 10.4kg (22.93lb) in the brochure above :)

Cheers

Very nice :)

I'll still keep an eye out for these 130 bars for ya

Weight wise, you may be right @ 23lbs

My (nearly catalogue spec) Pro hovers between 24.3 & 24.7lbs depending on build spec, catalogue lists it at 23.8lb (10.8kg), but I do have some boing up front adding weight

Had a play around with different tyres today :roll: I think I'd prefer something a bit 'bigger' than the Smoke for riding ;)

A few pics :lol:

Another tire option for you; this is my resprayed Pro, one of two I own (thanks to RockiMtn). I actually did the team paint on this one myself with rattle-cans. I don't know if these frames have a particularly steep head angle or if it's just the KHS fork but they always look like they've been in a front-end crash to me - v.quick handling!

Love your bike - the M900 kit is sublime - does the Comp share the OX II tubeset with the Pro/Team? It's funny they weigh the same - the only difference may be in the ride - the Pro/Team frame is perhaps stiffer?
