    weight weenie scale

    I was tired of using an inaccurate bathroom scale and always forget to order the $50 - $70 bike scale when buying parts online. Found a $30 luggage scale at Brookstone that works great. Dissappointed - I was hoping my Scott CR1 Pro was closer to 14.0 lbs



    Scott CR1 Pro: 14.45 lbs as pictured


    Cinelli Mash: 18.52 lbs as pictured (heavy wheels and steel track drops)


    Motobecane Fantom Cross Uno: 21.72 lbs as pictured


    LeMond still in pieces....

    i know, especially since the Scott CR1 pro frame is one of the lightest: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/li...ype=roadframes

    The 105 front brake is about .45 lbs
    The wheelset is 28 hole velocity aeroheads with double butted spokes, speedcific front hub and ENO hub rear
    Carbon SRAM Force crankset

    The scott (size LG) is listed at 15.5 fully built with force and ksyrium elite wheels.Maybe the scale is bit off.That ENO can't be that heavy .

    DCV great looking bikes! looks like we ride the same kinda bikes. I have you by one pound with my converted Litespeed, at 13.5 lbs. So I know you can shave off more fat there! After I got my park tools scale I have been weighing everything lol.

    before posting, a "noob" should always ask themselves "could this have been answered by first visiting Sheldon Brown

    Are kinlins really a lot lighter than the aeroheads? I think I need to go with carbon tubulars like mikeetow to get significant weight savings?

    I doubt gears are going to go back on it. I think it looks pretty good, what bullhorns did you end up putting on it for that 2nd weigh in, they look comfortable.

    if you want to drop even more weight, switch to tubulars, either full carbon or a low pro alum rim. also with the eno 28h hub, I actually had a hard time finding a 28h full carbon rim, that did not cost 700$ for one rim. (edge) Most carbon rims are 24 hole. But still prepare to spend some money.

    I bought this one: http://cgi.ebay.com/40kg-88lb-1-410o...item5199745306

    Couldn't go wrong for $3.38, it works just fine.
