    Ultimate ww bike?

    It's probably been posted here already but pretty impressive IMO.

    World?s Lightest Road Bike at 2.7kg

    I've been accused of just lurking here but I really do appreciate functional bike art.

    This is still a mountainbike forum, mind you.

    Dang I'm sorry, I thought it was 27+ forum, or minus. Maybe cyclocross? E-bike? I guess there's no room for a cool superlight bike in the ww forum.

    Oh look it hasn't been ridden . Oh look it hasn't been tested . Oh look it hasn't been weighed . Oh it must be rubbish and fall apart at the seams

    No seriously this is what WW is all about . This bike has been around for a while and like mine has had a mixed reaction . These bikes are rideable but not in any way like a normal bike .

    Although I can find a few way to get i lighter . One being the chain . If they used a YBN titanium chain it would take another 20-30grams off . Shorten the seapost and stem and cut the nose of the saddle off (like this Becker Carbon saddle : https://r2-bike.com/bilder/produkte/...nce-48g_b2.jpg) .

    Actually this one has been ridden (20,000k) and most definitely has been weighed.

    It wasn't ridden in present state when the pics were taken . It was ridden previously by Gunter Mai when it was over half a kilo heavier . Also where are the pics ?!!! Also where are the pics of the bike being weighed ?!!!

    Well, this article claims the bike has logged some 20k km. If that's true, I think it proves that it's not only rideable, but also holds up very well.
