The bike got a full-body liposuction, became a chain-smoker, and stopped eating completely. I think it converted to Breatharianism.






Okay okay this one wasn't so bad either...probably one of the unsung heros of the component group...










...I can't do it to you...I just can't...you guys aren't ready for it...too young and innocent!! Think of the children!!!

...2877...

Whew. That last post was deep. Heavy. (ahem).


We cannot end on such a sour note! The fight must go on! We've kicked those nasty, heavy parts to the curb. This is war! This is Sparta!!!!!




I'm sure many of you were wondering what '...2877...' had been referring to, although I must admit I'm disappointed in some of y'all's creativity!

'...2877 operations to go until AdventureMan can sit on another saddle again...'

'...2877 goatheads to takedown one of these Huffy's tires...' ----->






'...2877 calories burned per pedal stroke...'


You guys - I need more absurdity, more irrationality.

In any case, 2877 represents something very, very good. Unfortunately not '...2877 candy bars I deserve after every ride on the Le Grande...', although that is true.

No, this number is something I was very excited about...


...2877...






And just so you guys don't think I had a chain hoist installed in the kitchen, or cut a hole in my roof for the steel cable of the boom crane to come down through, here is the whole enchilada...




Now, 2877 grams...let's do the conversion.

1lb - 453.6 grams

Which means, of course: 2877g = 6.3lbs !!!!!!!!

Yes, I rounded down.
So sue me (ha, you can't, see 'hold harmless agreement' above)


Just for comparison's sake, I looked up what your average, pedestrian Colnago Super weighed. I was getting somewhere around 2000g. So 2877 - 2000, is 877 (duh), which means....

The Huffy frame is only 1.93lbs (rounded down) heavier than the Colnago. At this point, it's basically almost a Colnago killer. I think that is what I'm going to call it for a while. The bike has had many names, and I've rotated them out to suite a particular scenario. Right now, it shall be known as the 'Colnago killer (almost)'.

In short, I'm super excited. I wasn't sure if the frame was going to weigh 10lbs, and I was mentally preparing myself for the occasion. But this...this is a huge win. The bike that these Super Record donor parts are coming off of, was coming in at sub-19lbs. Therefore, I am putting myself (and the Le Grande) out on a limb to officially state that I have set a new, impossible-to-reach weight-weenie goal of sub-22lbs for the bike. Impossible you say?? Ha! I mean, you're correct, but 'ha' nonetheless! I'm freakin' jazzed.


Now, I've got a lot of work ahead of me, but I wanted to make this post and dedicate it to all of the forum's lovely retrogrouchy naysayers who thought me tearing down this Huffy and rebuilding it back up with SR was just a joke.

I mean, well, yes it is a joke, but well, it's still happening.

Mind: blown.

I think you just might make this a sub-25lb bike for real!

You know, the more I looked at that saddle, the more I thought: "That looks vaguely familiar..."

What do you think? Anybody else detect a family resemblance?





No wonder it's not the most comfortable 'perch' to sit upon

Was the fork weighed and the weight posted? Or did I just miss that?

Edited to add: I ask because a good 1970s/1980s CroMo or Chromium-Manganese steel fork from that era should weigh in the neighborhood of 700g or so, depending on steerer tube length (weighed an example of each that are unmounted and each weighed around 710g). I'm wondering how heavy the fork on this frame was.
