    Very nice! Ramp it up to 200 a week and you'll be at what I was doing in college.

    Nice bike, not much of a roadie, but it seems nice. That bike is light, a lot lighter than my 30-32 pound mountain bike.

    I think it has a lot to do with the fact that the frame is a 52cm I've got a short inseam

    I dunno man, the 52's I saw with 105 comps were 20.1 without anything on them. I'm not dogging, but a 2lb difference is like 1k-4k in price range.

    The mechanic at the bike shop didn't believe how light it was so he put it on their scale and he was surprised as well. his CAAD9-4 is 1Lb lighter.
