Take the Superman off, he's causing you drag and a few grammys.

Weight Weenie!

You're probably right but:

A. My Superman is conversation piece. I have had plenty of people say "Hey weren't you at _______? I remember the Superman." If memory serves me you were one of those people once.

B. Notice these are standard builds. These bikes have not been put on the Weight Weenie diet yet! Just Zero G's on Rebecca and nothing on Sasha. (well except the wheels).

Here's my new bike and I ride it in crits all the time, except when there are high winds in Dusseldorf.

Except for the frames themselves, and the Syntace on the R3.
