Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Accurate weight of a Bianchi Pista frame?

I'm curious if anyone knows for sure what a new Bianchi Pista frame weighs.

I'm trying to figure out where the weight is coming from on my bike. My road bike is 18 lbs with 30 speeds but my Pista is 19lbs with one brake and one gear.

Thanks!

How does the wheel weight compare between the two?

Surprisingly, not very noticeble with the highly unscientific "lifting" test. Cassette probably is the culprit on the road Mavic Ksyrium wheelset.
