Planet X Kaffenback weight?

nicknicknicknick Posts: 535
Hi,
I have ordered a Kaffenback to replace my cracked specialized winter training bike. I am just curious what sort of weight this thing ends up when built? I know it depends on the spec but can any owners give me an idea?

As its a training bike, weight isn't really important, just curious and can't wait to ride my first steel road bike :lol:

  • You are looking at about two pounds in excess of a top end carbon frame, with equivalent components.
    Barely noticeable once riding it.
  • 23 and a half pounds
    built up with old 8spd campag chorus and mavic open pro rims, cheap and fairly heavy seatpost , stem and bars (raleigh own brand) and sturdy 30mm tyres.

    you could probably save a fair but of weight just with better quality narrower tyres and tubes. It rides very well, no problems with comfort or handling. Very adaptable bike and if I had to get rid of all but one of my bikes i think it'd be the 'kaff I'd keep.
