Just in time for us to add one more item to our “what to be thankful for” list, the UPS driver just dropped off this new entry level Lightweight Urgestalt which we quickly built up to enjoy over the holiday weekend. And yes, when we say “entry-level” it’s with our tongues firmly planted in our cheeks as the carbon superbike would retail for close to $14,000 as built. That breaks down to $5000 for the frame (reduced from the previous price of $6500) and $4500 for the new Wegweiser wheels (reduced from the previous price of $6500 for the Millenstein wheels). Yeah, any way you slice that frankfurter, it’s a lot of dough!
Our test bike was equipped with a SRAM Red drivetrain and hydro disc brakes…with the addition of these beautifully machined rotors and carriers from Ashima.
