You could give us an updated component list, so we could discuss where to take some weight off.

Sanded cranks. Notice the imperfections/divots? Ya, those were filled in with resin prior to clear coat by factory.

As of February 21, 2014, current weight is 6.085 kg.

Parts I'm waiting for:

FibreLyte Rings (~68g savings)
MCFK UD Post (~70g savings)
MCFK UD Clamp (~8g savings)

Which should put the final weight of 5,939g. Where to drop 31g?

Enve/Edge stem (100 mm/120 g) --> Extralite OC (100 mm/82 g)

There's 38 g.

I'd never ride Tufo's, so that'd be cheating. I may put on a pair of Veloflex Extremes for San Dimas Stage Race, which should be -100g.

I forgot about my stem and it being porky. The MCFK stem is on my to buy list.

Nice! Ultra WW build for a Ti frame just makes sense.

Wow! Great build all around. Matching ti seatpost with a minimal matching clamp is so nice. Another Example of this ti-pseudo-ISP look: dwaharvey's 29er.

Bring this bike up to Santa Barbara some time. :beerchug:

Since the Ultralite Cirrus Ti didn't work out for me (causing knee issues), I gave up hope of getting the build below 13lbs. I also broke my Edge 25 rims, so I'm waiting for some Reynolds 32's (-200g to the 46's) to be shipped over with some Veloflex Carbons (-40g). I plan on getting the Praxis chainrings (-50g), doing the Ti upgrade to the speedplays (-80g) and getting the new SRAM XG 11-23 cassette (-36g).

Here's a pic of it right now with the stripped fork, crank and stem:

Currently, it's a porky 14.3lbs (6.48kg). Should hopefully be 6.1kg once I get the most recent upgrades. I'll probably pick up a pair of LW Ventoux at the end of summer, which would put me at sub 6kg.
