Bike P0rn of the month - Litespeed Archon

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Archon overview with the owner without his face

Total weight 5.9kg. it's so light that you can lift it with a finger

Don't believe that? Old man proves that...

Still don't believe? Little girl proves that....

Don't try this at home..he's got Shaolin Kungfu.

Over. thanks for watching.

Yes.

With all those ultra light stuff, it will be ashamed to actually carry water on rides.

He should carry dehydrated water, you know, just add water to get, umm... water.

That's the first pictures I've actually seen of that frame (other than the Litespeed ads). I really like it.

Nice choice of the red componets and trim with the bike. You have no excuse for getting dropped on hills with that bike Very nice!

Phallenthoul - how's the riding in China? Are you up north of Beijing/Peking? or whereabouts?

I've heard good things about the climbs in some of the back country roads.

The roads up into some of the more remote portions of "the Great Wall" were pretty smooth and virtually traffic free the last time I was there. Then again, that is the North and that was in the middle of February. 20F weather and dry.
