The crankset I believe is right around 730 grams.
The head unit if im not mistaken is around 70 grams.
Most of the bits on this bike were sponsor related so I didn't have too much choice but the skewers were in fact mine and are the DT Swiss titanium non cam ones.
As far as the wheel set is concerned, my take on them these days is that the hubs have been sufficiently upgraded over the years to no longer be as much of a pain as they used to be. People used to have to replace the bearings pretty frequently - while they do need to be made sure the hubs themselves are tight, they are good and solid. The wheel itself typically gets made pretty darn well from the factory right now and is both reasonably light and aero. It's not a wheel imo that sits above the rest in any category but one that is pretty darn good at everything. I have seen this bike with a fancy set of 32's and it chunks about a pound off of it. But I also raced these wheels in third world countries on and off road and they are still in true
That doesn't reflect my tires themselves being destroyed but whatever ha.
The bike definitely does not feel quick as "quick" as the mi mod did but it is certainly more comfortable on the rear with the flat stays.
I would be curious how the R5ca compares.
This was a longer response than I had planned
