loopy mild bike! | Street Bike, Biking Boards


I do not pursue Weight Weenie-ness as a pastime so I am fairly out-of-the-loop so far as what’s even doable these days…so after I met a man on a membership experience as we speak sporting a beautiful, fashionable, fully-appointed 12-speed street bike that tipped the scales at 10lbs 6oz, I used to be gobsmacked!

His wheelset weighed half of what my lightest pair weigh!
His saddle weighed half of what the lightest saddle I’ve ever even heard about weighs!
It was fairly astonishing.

Cannondale EVO HiMod body and fork
Gelu saddle
ENVE 125 rims with Tune hubs
THM cranks
I assume he had THM brake calipers too
SRAM eTap …he joked that he might’ve saved one other half pound if he’d gone with mechanical shifting.

Very nice bike. Good man too, and he might experience.
Dragging my >17lb porker up the steps after I acquired dwelling was so demoralizing!! :)
