that beats the living out of chrome any day. also the wheels are unsprung weight which means it's double the weight loss if i'm not mistaken. plus they are rotating weight which means they are way lighter the faster you go. imagine going into a corner with them


I could make a joke here but...............but...................

some people think its ricey. mostly people that didnt' spend 1000's on carbon bodywork. IMO weight savings over race plastic would be so minimal the only reason to do it is for the looks so painting over it would be stupid. I'd buy that and an HVC carbon fiber helmet and rock it all day long.
awesome bike.

from what i see on the frame it sounds like this guy is using a carbone fiber tape and maybe a clear coat on top of it to make it look real
