    People actually take the time to use calculators to fact-check the weight of other people's bicycles?

    Can you give me(us) close ups of the routing?

    i love the bike by the way.

    Great build. That's a legit badass Cervelo and freakin' light to boot, nicely done. I'd hit it.

    My advice is buy a frame with holes. It gets messy up front.

    You already have Boras. Get the 3.4 clinchers. CK R45s or if Alchemy has started up again, something from them. CX Rays. Nicest wheels on the planet. Should be pretty light as well.

    do you know how hard it is to get the sum of the parts to equal the weight of the bike? guess what? it ain't gonna happen....

    ...if you really care, and/or you can't believe the pic of the bike on the scale...then there's there's a whole thread at weight weenies where you're supposed to list the entire build by piece with weighed weights down to bolts...trust me, I've done it...an intellectual exercise, albeit a meaningless one at the end of the day...

    Most everything was weighed. I think I could do it, but it's not worth the brain damage. If I cared enough, I'd hang out at WW.

    This should go in a "Best of Hot or Not" thread or something.

    Going to leave this bike alone for cruising rides and going to build a more typical all black cervelo for speed. I'll be back.

    Finally, something that isn't black and/or white. Hot except the steerer tube obviously.

    I'm sorry, but I find that Fuji to be an abhorrent mish-mash of color and weird angles, and award it a NOT

    Just noticed the "hell-bent" post, that puts it even lower on my not hot list. But, ride the heck out of it!

    Yeah that was a little rough. I like the frame and the wheels. I don't like the white tires or the Thompson setback post (never have, never will).

    For someone who isn't fond of Specialized bikes, I'm liking the last two. Well done, jmX.
