    Over the last weekend CyclingNews reported on one of our old projects, the worlds lightest bike. This now seems like a good time for us to revisit this project as well.  It also seems like a good time to mention that this project is the inspiration for two of our upcoming Interbike projects.  No, we’re not going to make a lighter bike, as there doesn’t seem a point since this is still the current record holder.  We will however be offering two new projects both with an eye on total weight, yet keeping with a more generally accepted idea of all around use.

    What about the crankset and pedals? Are the pedals aerolite?? Crankset- I got no idea…

    Jason decided to go European and call the cranks a chainset. It’s a Myth prototype. I just added the pedals, they are AeroLite.

    I very much guess you´ll be offering in one of those projects a super ultralight singlespeeder. that is very much anticipated by me since a few years. keep the good stuff coming.
