Could this be the World's lightest Timetrial (TT) bike at 6.9kg ?
Why do we have to make do with heavy TT bikes? We know that standard line is that weight doesn'tt make much of a difference in TT. Sorry this is pretty much mis-information. Except for downhill and really flat courses bike: weight is usually important. v important if its uphill (as is rider weight). Indeed dropping 10kg will save about 1min of a hilly 25mile timetrial which has an 2000m (0.5% ave) of hills see this link. There is added benefit of a light rider because a light rider is also an aero rider!
