Roadie from Downtown Toronto
Im a hillclimber roadie, I've been riding bikes ever since I was a toddler. After coming to toronto (3 years) I have had 5 bikes in total of which the first one got stolen. The fourth bike was donated to a bike charity organisation. Right now I have 3 bikes- 1) a nisihiki beater
2) a sears frame converted to a fixie
3) A 2006 Opus weighing 19 pounds that i use for training
The main reason why I joined bike forum, besides mingling with people alike who shares the same interest, is that Im trying to put together a climbing specific ultra light road bike for the upcoming year 2008. I have the wheels (Bontrager Race 1790g ) and seat (Toupe Team 170g), all i need is the frame and a complete groupo with headset, handlebar, stem and seatpost. My current favs are the devinci leo 2008 (913g) and the R3 from cervelo (850g ish). I need some tips and advices on what is a proper frame and what other options do i have. I am an undergraduated student and keeping the limited finance issue in mind I would like to aim for the best in the market.
