    This is my main machine.

    It's light and comfortable.:biggrin:

    No mods on it as yet but planning on getting pair of new wheels and tyres (plus cassette and inner tubes to match the weight saving).
    Budget for wheels depends on forthcoming bonus....maybe £200...maybe £400.

    I've had this since September.
    I bought it because it was a good blend of value (at £849.00) with lightweight/quality parts.
    Frame features Carbon seat stays. Full carbon fork.
    I love the frame and fork....the bike is responsive and a pleasure to ride.

    Carbon saddle and seatpost. Ultegra rear Mech, 105 front. With 105 shifters.
    Plans for future components......just a compact Ultegra SL chainset.:sad:

    Hopefully after the wheels and related bits are fitted I should see the weight drop to approx 17.1lbs.....possibly less still after the chainset is fitted.:idea:

    With Shimano gearing it's got to be good. The colour is also attractive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Steve, what wheels does it have on there already? Are they shimano wheels? if so what ones, I can't make them out.

    Hiya,

    It has Shimano WH-R500 wheels on there at the moment.
    They have flat bladed spokes.
    I will use them as a spare set and of course once I get my Conti turbo tyre I'll fit that to the rear wheel and hook it to the bike when needed.:girl:
