Lighter saddle: AX-Lightness, or (but very expensive) a fixed saddle/seatpost combination from AX-Lightness. -150g or even more

cranks: Storck Carbon, Extralite E-Bones (need ISIS bb then) -150g/-90g

Skewers: Tune Ac 16/17 -27g

Stem: Syntace F99 -20g (short version)

Frame: Schmolke Titan (several versions, down to 1150g/frame) -300g

Bar: Schmolke Carbon (custom-made) -30g

Seatpost: Schmolke (custom-made) -50g (depends on length/rider weight)

All these parts are very expensive and don't save very much weight, but your bike allready is very light, so it's hard to save even more weight...

Ti.Eggbeaters work great and are light.Conti.1.5 Cross Country tires are nice.
Are the Schmolke Carbon bars safe?Thay seem crazy light to me.Anyone tried the new RaceFace Next carbon bars?
