    Moots RSL Weight

    Took my 2012 RSL into the LBS for a little adjustment. Saw their scale and asked them to weigh the bike - 16lbs 14oz. Rolf Prima Wheels with PowerTap 2.4, Enve bars, Moots Stem and seat post, Dura Ace. How does this compare?

    Damn, that's good, so I am carrying close to 4 pounds more than you! I'll have to lose that in body weight, I am not replacing any parts on my bike.

    Hey greybicycle,

    totally love what you've done to the Moots. .. as you said: "the look and pride"
    My RSL is still 2-3 weeks away, so I am currently putting together a build list.
    Mine is Di2, RSL forks, 44mm OS headtube.

    Can you please list a complete build list for yours?

    What headset did you use? (I am thinking Chris King Inset 1)

    Is Moots seatpost and stem worth the extra $$$? Have you compared them to carbon equivalent?

    I would appreciate any insight..

    Cheers
    Vlad

    Those wheels shave off 2.5lbs. They are 1,100g with tires. Too bad they are tubies, I hate getting stuck on the road 40mi away from home. Are you in Lausanne?

    hello, yes, I'm located in Lausanne, you?

    I love tubulars, I carry some latex spray along and it does the temporary repair 99% of the time. 1% would be a phone call......

    RSL stem, LB seatpost, FSA nano compact HB, speedplay ti pedals, full SR groupo, garmin 800, Lightweight Ventoux wheelset with Victoria 21 mm/320 tpi tubulars.
    Fizik aliente saddle. just components I love, some are really light but the goal is comfort , stuff I like on this bike. check my second bike Di2 equipped/Mavic Ultimate wheel set/6.5 kg.

    I love both the ti SP layback and the stem MOOTS makes, it seems just more esthetic, more correct on that specific bike.

    greybicycle - thank for the build list.
    Do you recall which Chris King headset did you use?
    Do you happen to remember the exact model/number?

    Your Look is also a serious weapon - which one (moots or look) do you ride the most?
    I have a specialized SL4 (similar build to your Look) and wondering if my SL4 will be left gathering dust in my garage.

    Cheers

    all in all I use the LOOK most, I think there is only one CK that fit the 44 mm HS.
    send pics when you finish building yours.
