    The frame is 880 grams, the fork is 370 grams. I was actually very suprised at how light it was.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    If you don't mind, how much were the wheels?

    They were built by mistake so they were discounted a bit. I believe I got them for around $750 - $800 but I can't remember exactly. The majority of the time I plan to use a PowerTap and a cheapie front wheel. For the time being I weigh too much for this wheelset, I just wanted to ride them a couple of times to see how they were. They are awesome!

    Thanks. I'm 170, probably too heavy for riding those on the road.

    Dunno, I'm shooting for 180 before I ride them regularly.

    As far as I know this is the only set that he has built. So, so far (2 rides) they are very durable.

    Sweet! If I can get my weight down and get back into racing I very well may have to pick up a pair of 303 tubulars.
