Nice to see another Izalco on here! My suggestion would be the bar and cassette (depending on which SRAM cassette that one is). Handlebar could get you right around 100g for not too much if you shop around.

Looks solid!

Are you using different coloured spokes on both wheels, or is it just how it looks in the picture?

Easiest places to lose a bit of weight (probably not huge amounts, but relatively lower cost stuff) is pedals (higher end Shimano or Speedplay), go for a carbon framed / railed saddle (even if you keep with the Arione) and the bars.

Yes the front is silver
I had to replace the front American Classic wheel since I dented the rim
Soon I am going to lace my American Classic hubs to stans alpha 340s

Thanks for the advice

Update:
Switched to Sram 1091r Chain
Fizik Arione Carbon Braided CX Saddle
3T Doric LTD Seatpost
Zipp Service Course SL

Brought me down to 6.87kg

Still want to get below 6.8 but its getting more difficult (Expensive)

As said before, new pedals should be the easiest way to drop some weight. Dura Ace pedals if you like Shimano, or Speedplay's which are a bit cheaper. Both should drop the bike around 100g.

Excellent bike - the Izalco pro is possibly the best value for money frame around right now.

Obvious points: pedals, saddle, maybe the bars, and possibly the cages (are they the standard Elites? Get King Ti ones...pricey but light and tough)
