On the Spot: Headset

Starting Weight:  2268 gr (5lbs)


Let the building begin!  Picked up the frame from the LBS Friday after work and after I liberated the Manitou Minute from the diSSent I got the Spot in the stand. 

This is going to be my first build where I am really paying attention to weight.  The steel frame is a weight weenie's nightmare to start because it's going to be at least a pound or two heavier than aluminum so I'll be paying particular attention elsewhere. 



I love riding steel bikes and this will be my second geared bike in this category.  I have great hopes that this is going to be my #1 choice in the stable.
