    If you get your tape measure out you can make some approximations as to where the centre of you bars will end up.

    I myself went for function over form, I didn't really like the riding position and as such never used the bike that much. Now though, I love this bike!

    What rear hub did you use, I was thinking of changing my wheels to Arch EX and a hope hub myself? The current X9 hub is a little slow on engagement along with the bearings being rough.

    Here is a pic of my new to me '12 carbon frame. I finally snapped and couldnt take the white fork with the blk/silv/red frame. Decided to sand it down as I never have luck with paint sticking long term to anything.

    Looks sweet now (Ithink) and it was an abslout horrible job to do by hand. I have only gone to a 400grit paper right now a a couple coats of wax, but I may do a full polish on it at some point. my fingers hate me right now!

    Comes in just under 20LBS With a very budget build. Mostly x9 and XT




    Heres the parts list if anyone is interested. I am kinda proud of the budgetness of it.

    Hi mod frame replaced warranty alloy.
    Stock alloy riser bar
    Stock alloy Seatpost
    Specialized Phenom Ti rails saddle
    Ritchey WCS foam grips.
    Stock non OPI stem (I think I might want an OPI -15)
    90mm PBR alloy lefty
    X9 Crank spider removed
    Wolf tooth 30T DM ring
    x7 rear shifter
    x9 Type 2 RD
    XT cassette
    XT brakes
    kcnc 160fr rotor
    kcnc 140R rotor
    kmc x10sl Gold chain
    XT Pedals
    old style Industry nine wheel set on crest rims
    Specialized Sworks Renegade 1.95 front and rear.
    Stock seat post clamp
    Stock Skewer
    Some crappy bottle holder.

    Sounds about right, I do seem to recall the Hi mod frames being a touch lighter but I dont know if that was confirmed.

    Hoping my carbon bars and seatpost get here soon, excited to see if there is a big difference over the alloy.

    The last time it was weight was 20.00lbs with 180fr and 160r avid rotors. Have 160fr and 140r now so I was able to ditch the adapter in the rear.

    Im curious how much weight came off the fork....there was a tonne of paint on that dam thing!

    But how is the change in terms of manevrability, stability and climbing? I mean in a race conditions, do you race also ?

    I don't race, no and got me the ultimate consideration was the debilitating back pain. Handling of ur bike doesn't change much worth Sturm length, contrary to popular belief, but bar width is much more of a factor.

    This is my first post and my first day with a Cannondale. I previously owned a trek X-Caliber and have been itching to try the lefty! After looking at everyone's photos for the last week, I had to take the plunge.
    I am shocked at how well the bike rides and also how light it is. Hopefully my new toy will provide me with many rides to come. I got a heck of a deal on a loaded bike.

    Dropped another .6 of a pound! Not bad for a $100.

    Bought some hylix stuff. After one ride the bar felt great. the saddle moved abit but I havent got my torque wrench yet. the Ti rails and alu Clamps make for a slippery surface.




    Should have it down near 19lbs now. Will weight it tomorrow hopefully.

    It amazes me as well...
    With the 2012 F29 Carbon frame and Lefty, Reynolds Carbon wheelset and light tubeless tires (Schwalbe RaRa/RoRo) as well as 2x10 XX F/R derailleurs and Hollogram cranks and my bike weight is 20.5
    I guess it matter what scale one is using ... I use the Red Feedback Sports Alpine.

    Mine was measured on a park scale. It was 20.07. Thay was with 180mm fr 160mm rear avids. Have since gone to kcnc 160/140mm and lost the rear adapter.
    Then the carbon bits. In theory , it should be 19.5ish.

    The 1x saved alot of weight for me.

    Yes, the 1x explains a lot...
    Still, I like my 2x10... 39/26 11/36, the 1x11 doesn't get as low or as high as that combo.

    I would think it's a long cage schlava?

    You might get away with a medium however.

    Pretty stock , minus panaracer tires, egg beaters, bar ends.

    Might be looking into making this bike a light weight.

    Where is the biggest bang for the buck in taking off a few lbs?
    And still be strong,, Im a bigger rider.

    The wheels were a huge one on my '13... Shimano m5XX hub is like 499 grams. The i19 rims are light so just going with a light hub and spokes on the rear wheel could be inexpensive (bikehubdtore.com look for the mtb270) and would save half a lb. Also depending on where you live you could go 1x10. My race face narrow wide cost me $35 and with deleting the extra chain ring, fd, and shifter, it was over 1lb savings. That's almost lbs for under $200 :-)

    At 23lbs it is already pretty light!

    As twonin9r suggested wheels, tubes and tires are the main place, bars and seat post for carbon equivalent is another option. If you want to keep 2x10, hollowgram cranks?

    1x10 is the best bang for weight buck. I dropped over a pound for 70usd.

    Guess I'm going 1 x 10 then. Since I'm on road tires might as well!
    What's a decent setup? Think I want to keep with xtr everything.

    Race face narrow wide and just remove everything else. $40 and that's it.

    2012 flash alloy 3 large frame, my baby. New to the sport and these forums. Grabbed this beauty off of craigslist for a great deal and have been having a blast ever since. The guy I purchased it from had only test ridden it once on pavement so it was basically new when i acquired it. I took this picture on top of Blue Hills in southeast Mass.

    New F29 Carbon 3. I just bought a new 2014 F29 Carbon 3 at my local LBS inventory clear out. I got it for CDN $2325. I will post photos when I pick it up on Saturday. Now time to start the upgrade process 😊. First step will be to change the stem to a more upright stem. Itching to get it out for a run
