What you replace those with will depend on your budget size. Some suggestions to replace them with below:

Bats: 3t LTD carbon
Stem: 3T LTD carbon
Brakes: KCNC or if budget allows eeBrakes. Ciamillo are a worthy choice, but their customer service is abysmal (so I would avoid them).
Tires: Your choice.
Shifters: SRAM Red
FD and RD: SRAM Red
Saddle: your choice with carbon rails
Seat post: 3T LTD

**Pedals, wheel plugs, and lighter tubes are other places where I would look to drop weight.

Look into the kalloy uno stems, there is a thread somewhere on here about them. Very light and easy on the wallet. Win/WIn :thumbup:

Brakes...the 105's are pretty heavy. Maybe go tubeless on the tires.

Yes the 3t post can be used on the road, if you are looking at 0 setback posts have a look at the hylix posts on ebay, sand the graphics for a stealth finish. I have one in 27.2x400mm that came in at 160g and was around $80 IIRC.

Nice bike, I've been sitting looking at this frame/bike in the shop for a few weeks now - what's your weight on it?

i am at 7.41kg right now. upgraded planet-x CNC brakes

i also got wahoo rflkt LCD and stages powermeter on it right now..

my pedals are prob weight me down i got mtn pedals on it right. i like my shoe with spd pedals.

Shimano XTR PD-M980 XC Pedals at 310g


right now i am thinking upgrading the seat post... i got carbon sl-k post with 20mm offset.

do i need to stick with the 20 mm offset or can i use a post with 25 mm offset..

the ritchey superlogic 27.2 25mm offset at 148 g looks good to me?

any suggestions for a seat post.


tubeless tires i did the math on excel you really dont save that much weight go tubless... the tubless tires weights more than tube + clincher combo.

i got the dur-ace c24... which can go tubeless or clincher..

stages doesn't make a rotor option.

i forgot to mention i switched to to sram red cranks, had to get a pf30 bb rotor bb... then i was able to get the stages pm.

its awesome connects via bluetooth to my iphone, no garmin needed.

i miss the look of the rotor crank, but i think the red is just as stiff and also lighter.

Stages makes a red crank option? I thought they would not work with carbon cranks.

Your seat has a lot of fore-aft adjustment range, you can use a seapost with any offset. Maybe with zero offset but then you won't be able to move the seat farther back.

You could lose weight with 110mm BCD cranks and smaller chainrings. Then you can run smaller cogs and a short cage derialleur.

heres how stages works:

you only change the non drive side crank: which the swap with a metal rival crank same length with the power meter on it...

so since the interface between all sram cranks are the same u can use it with red, force, rival ,etc.

you just change the non drive crank out, which is pretty easy on sram cranks.


yes. they can't put it on carbon the they need a flat metal surface...


so shimano... they can do..

fsa.... you have to be careful with the models...

So which left side crank are you using and how much more than the Red carbon left arm does it weigh?
