Weight Differences 2010 Tarmac Expert vs 2005 Allez Pro
Just finished putting the final touches on my new 2010 Tarmac Expert with Ultegra, it replaces a 2005 Allez Pro w/Dura Ace 7800. The Allez Pro has 32 spoke mavic cxp33 rims with ultegra hubs. The tarmac has Equipe wheels. Both have s-works seat posts, the same carbon bars, and the same seats. I finished off both bikes almost the same ie computer, bottle cages, ect........
Allez Pro 19lbs 1oz
Tarmac Expert 18lbs 6oz
I am floored, was my old bike that light, or is the new tarmac kind of heavy.
Can't weight to ride the tarmac tomorrow; I am sure ride wise the bike will feel different, just can't figure out why the carbon bike isn't lighter than it is....
I guess it's time to look for wheels....
