    Alloy bike weight and cost

    I just found out what my bike weighs and thought I would see what some of your alloy bikes weigh. My '08 Aluminum Soloist 56 cm weighs in at 15.92 lbs and cost me approx $2000 to build up (thats everything from pedals, tires to handle bar tape). I will be adding a little weight with a new 23 mm archtype wheelset but I really didn't build it to be weight weenie and absolutely love this bike. It was my lbs that weighed it out of curiosity and said it is a very light Alloy bike.

    I know there are some really light aluminum Caad 10's out there so chime in.
    Just another 35 year old with 55 year old knee's.

    ...at least I look fast.

    that's a link to a story about marco pantani's 1998 bianchi with alloy frame, his weighed 6.96kg I think which is pretty light even by todays standards.

    I have two Specialized Allez' Both were built with attention to weight vs function. Forks replaced with SL3 Carbon forks etc etc. All SRAM Red, Carbon Bars/Stem/Seatpost. Physical differences between the two are wheelsets. One runs Zipp 808's the other Reynold's 46'rs. Even with the Quarq Power and Garmin they are right at 16 pounds.

    Vs a Specialized SL3 which is right at 14 pounds.
