    Nate you're right.I'm a Shimano's maniac.I love the feeling and the ergonomic of Shimano' components.I 't love Sram, i don't have any feeling.

    Beautiful build, can't go wrong with carbon Ritchy parts and high-end Shimano drivetrain.

    Looks fast

    Gratulazione!!! nice bici!

    really like that colour!

    i bought a black emd couple a years ago but i like this one better....

    @ nordstern: i ihink he wrote 10.7

    pretty light for a steel bike with no particular lightbuild stuff on it...

    Yes Lejeune, you're right.
    I saved weight on the wheelset and stem with bar.
    I was undecided if to buy new American Classic wheelset or custom set with American Classic Hubs and Stan's NoTubes Arch rims( I'd choose Arch because i would like a tougher set sacrifing lightness).
    At last i have to save money so i bought A2Z hubs 350gr couple with Sun Ringlè wheelset.
    It weight almost 1650gr.Tires are very light, 300gr for each one.
    Consider that I haven't choosen to adopt the rigid fork and exotic materials, i would to make ligher the bike, under 10...

    oh yeah, hadnt noticed the freds...

    i mount them only for uphill timetrials... and then watch where you ride...

    for allday riding id take crows or raven (the knobier one in front, always forget which one that

    is... gettin older). not a big weight penalty...

    I'm getting ready a new wheelset with Archs and Nobby Nics.All purpouse tires.
    And in those days i'm starting my other project...called The Beast!...I can't say more....based on Surly.
