Ok here she is...
Black Beauty (ok so it's not a vintage Les Paul, but I still can use the nickname, no?)


Might as well invite the others to show their own

It may not be a Les-Paul, but you've got a reverb fitted anyway. Good man. :-)

Mine weighs 7kg- but it's a road bike. I'm surprised that it takes my weight!

Re: my new ride

Weight isn't everything. Unless you are racing XC or marathon it's silly buying a bike that light. Great for going up, but the main reason for going up is to get back down again. For that it's nice to have a bit more weight and more relaxed angles.

I have no problem pedalling my freeride bike up pretty much anything and that weighs over 16kg... and I'm not a lycra clad fitness freak.
