    WOW! That's light! But you can drop more weight, go 2x9 or take off the Mavic sticker, you have Stan's rims anyway!

    Hey Sebastian? are you racing TMBRA? I am going to return for the fall series as well w/my Scalpel.

    Nice bike, what rear cassette are you using? How about the XO rd cogs?

    the reason i dont go 2x9 its that since im using a 11-25 cassete, in some uphill i need the 24t in the front......

    That's seriously light for a scalpel, I have my 2005 team size small down to 22.9.

    I have a use carbon seat pin, Sella SLR saddle, stans disks, tune rear QR, ti bolts everywhere that aluminium would break and triple ti egg beaters.

    Where did the rest of it go?

    Really nice! My new rims, bar and SI crankset arrived for my Scalpel which should get me under 23lb, and under 22lb with converted regular tires. I wish I could run a tire like the Crow out in Arizona, but sharp edged rocks out here tend to make short work of thin sidewalls even with sealant.
    A component breakdown would be great.

    I think one of my tires alone is heavier than your whole bike!

    that sure is a nice bike!

    but who built your wheels? They didnt know what they were doing or not paying attention, or both.

    Proper wheel builds have the decal able to be read from the drive side of the bike. This insures proper mating of the spokes to the tangentially-drilled holes. Just a small touch that a well-trained wheelbuilder knows.

    As a wheelbuilder, I always think its such a shame to see expensive products built wrong......

    ZTR355 being already very fragile, I hope you don't hurt yourself...

    That would explain it. Ive never really pegged Stan as a smart fella....... This just reinforces that thought.

    Hey Stan - fire your wheelbuilder and hire some guy to do rim quality control. If I have to build another one of your wheels that comes dented or twisted, Im a gonna freak the F right out.

    I dont know about you guys, i have another set of ZTR355 for over a year, with not a single problem... I have another set four months ago with no a single problem... Tinker juarez its using the same type of wheels... and as many other riders... To me they are really strong wheelset for the weight.....

    Save a couple more grams by replacing that one-piece stem clamp with one of Cannondale's racer two-piece clamps :-) I haven't checked the weight, but you can really tell the difference weighing them in your hands! Ask your local C'dale dealer about them ;-)
