One for the Weight Weenies
BikeRadar.com reports (here) on Cervelo's "Project California," which is a new bike frame, resembling the current R3 model, that would weigh only 700 grams (for the 54 cm size). If you have to ask the expected price, you can't afford it: $9,600. But hey, who wouldn't spend an extra $4000 to $5000 to drop 200-300 grams?
