MCFK Saddle (69g):
I really love this saddle. I have about 3,000 miles on it so far, including Copperopolis, which I'll explain further below.

Edge 1.25 Rear w/ DT240s Hub:
Copperopolis is a race in Northern California that is considered the Paris-Roubaix equivalent in California. Although it's not cobblestones, it was THE worst roads I've ever been on or could have conceived. For 80% of the 21 mile lap you're on roads that seem like they were paved 60 years ago, torn up and then just patched on top of patches. The main descent was roughly 45 mph and all you could do was hold on for dear life as the bike bounced and bobbled in the air. All of my weight weenie components made it out alive, which highly impressed me since standard components failing is commonplace at this race. The Reynold DV46 didn't lose true, the Extralite headset is still humming along and the Mcfk saddle, even though it took some serious beating by me being fully seated most of the race, is still performing admirably. The only weenie part that I seriously regretted was the cloth tape. Even with gloves on, I was nearly in tears during the descent. I had the lizard skins sitting on my desk but thought it would have been fine since I "got used" to the cotton tape.
Oh, and the Edge 1.25's are glued up and curing. With these, the Siena is now down to 13.56 lbs.
Here's a teaser pic until I can get around to taking pics outside:
