This is a bike I’ve building for a while. The scale is 10.36lbs.on a certified calibrated scale These components were chosen for performance and functionality. The carbon rings are not made for longevity, it’s just my opinion I’m pointing out the carbon chain rings on the list are only made to last 4 or 5k miles. This is my second pair of rings, my old carbon rings had about 4500 miles and none of the teeth have broken. I had changed them because of the wear.
I do not recommend some of these light weight parts if you are over 165lbs, these very light weight parts are only made for light weight riders the carbon rings are made by tune, are the best they are thicker than the normal carbon ring. Currently these rings have 900 miles on them They do last for about 4k to 5K miles. They do shift very well and as far as areo light pedals, in my opinion the pedals are easy to get in and out of. The best pedal for what they are I have tried many clipless pedals and I like the areolites the most. I have tried many pedals (Speed play X 1,to much float\time Atac carbon Ti to sticky to get in out of also the bebop deluxe to hard to get in and also to much float.

nice and impressive bike Bernie!
half of it looks the same than mine;)
you should have gotten the tune housings. i finally found a way to connect them. was easy. they are much slicker than any other cable and improve shifting and braking while beeing quite a lot lighter.
just yesterday i was about to buy some 900g tubular wheels that i was offered (Tune hubs with nano extreme rims) but i decided against them. i want a bike i can rely on also when going downhills at speed and braking hard. those wheels are nice for climbing but not for everyday use. those wheels would have brought my bike to about the same weight...i know what it feels like and the Scott is definitely THE bike. i just did a record lap yesterday even though i'm not in shape yet...man, that bike is so fast you can't go slow on it.
i finally also decided against the Scapula fork because it doesn't match the integrated frame aesthetically and because i don't want to support those guys' insane prices: 800 euro for a fork is just too much. i can't justify to spend 550 euro more for a fork that is just about 30g lighter.

What is the point in haivng a road bike you can't race?
Why couldn't that bike be raced?

UCI weight limit?

Check the posters stats and you'll see that he is from Arizona. So, he could race in virtually every race in the states. Most of them being USA Cycling sanctioned, not UCI.
