    There is no formal weight limit, but larger sizes will flex, this frame is a medium (54cm TT) and given it's a compact frame is pretty stiff

    If I'm not mistaken, they're not drilled - they clamp in place with pressure.

    What you are missing is that those are oil paintings of bikes, and the wood is the easel. It is absolutely brilliant.

    785 grams, what size is it? pretty light frame. and 272 gr fork, Most forks i've seen are in the upper 300 gr range.

    ummm...he already said it was a medium...

    these babies are no longer in production of course, but they were indeed spec'd without rider weight limits...there's plenty of history on the interwebs on the pros and cons of this ultra light thin wall ti frameset. regardless...it's HOT as far as I'm concerned

    The Reynolds UL is a 300gr fork and then the steerer was cut to 200mm, reducing the weight even more.

    The ENVE 1.0 is the current equivalent or you could go lighter with the THM Scapula SP.

    You could have leaned them up against the wall for free. It worked in my apartment dwelling bachelor days.

    now that I am married, I used a mount that spans studs. It only takes two screws to hold it. It is no different than hanging a mirror or large picture.

    I'm just not a fan of having to knock around looking for the hard wood, but instead having something that's mobile.

    Thanks. Those are freshly laced NOS hubs and tubular rims. I haven't decided on tires yet and unlike clinchers, I don't have spares hanging around. I will have tires glued on for spring.

    here it is with clinchers:
