This is Smokey the cat in the shop with the new S3 Superlight road frame I am finishing up. My wife is always wanting me to include the animals in the blog so hopefully she will see this. This is the first frame that I have used all S3 tubing on and I may keep this for myself since I don't have a road bike right now and I am curious as to how this stuff rides. The frame as is now is 3 lbs. exactly, but it still needs a couple of braze-ons. When the bike is finished hopefully its gonna be lighter than ol' Smoke by a couple of pounds. Actually there is a weight limit on the S3 frameset and Smoke exceeds the limit, he has no use for a road bike anyway because he is strictly a cyclocross cat. Stay outta the road Smokus! This frame is dialed in like one of my cheesecakes, the wheel is perfectly centered and this is what I shoot for on every frame. I am dying to get on a lightweight bicycle. I have been riding a 20 lb. cross bike for about 8 months in these Mountain Home hills and I am worn out, ready to do some climbing, thats why I am naming this frame "El Chava" after my favorite racer of all time, Jose Maria Jimenez, man could he climb. Viva "El Chava!" Gonna throw an Edge carbon fork and some Campy-11 on it and depending on the wheels used it should fall into the mid-16s range. As soon as this one is done I am gonna be starting on my first frame with carbon and I can't wait to start on that because I have been planning to do it for so long and just haven't gotten around to it but its coming. Stay tuned for the finished product. Chao.
