    Damn, I saw a road bike in a local shop that was 16 lbs without pedals and I thought that thing was lite.

    I love how the 2nd link they say "creating the lightest possible race-ready bike" . I don't know about you I wouldn't race with downtube shifters and Benotto tape. Ouch

    Wow that thing is extremely light. This guy at my shop has a really light bike. Or at least I thought it was light. It weighs in at 15.4 lbs. So one of the other mechanics put some lead weights in his seat post when he wasnt there and now it weighs in at 16.3 lbs. So we are going to see what he does.

    Yea but the dude who put it in there is a bad ass so I dont think he will be touching anyone. He will just take it in stride.

    I believe the article I read on it said no weight limit....frightening.

    We have a guy here with a sub 15lb bike, that is with cages and his tool bag. Of course he also managed to crack his carbon rims, so it will be gaining some weight fairly soon.
