Not superlight, but still some space for improvement... Looking at next upgrades:
- Alligator iLinks for brakes and shifters
- Powercordz for brakes and shifters
- Extralite Exustar 2 expander
- Parts of Passion carbon top cap
- Extralite Alien 2 skewers
- Selle Italia SLR Kit Carbonio Flow saddle
- Fizik microtouch bar tape
- eeBrakes

Any other (relatively inexpensive) suggestions? I know a set of sexy Lightweight tubulars would bring it down quite a bit, but I prefer the convenience of clinchers.

Anybody know if that seatpost can be tuned?

Should I go white saddle/white bar tape.. or black/black + red hoods?

You need a black/red Garmin.

LOL. I know... I bought the Garmin a few years ago, so I'm stuck with it. Unless someone wants to trade?

Very nice! I love my new BMC so always like seeing shots of others. At some point I'll put mine up as well, but it's the 2011/12 matte carbon one with more graphics on it in 47 size 6.62kg all up with nothing really flash on it as yet

No - it sits lower than the Barfly does. Looks to be the Raceware Direct mount linked to above ^^.

I wouldn't do anything with the bar tape. That looks perfect (aside from the lack of black/red garmin mentioned earlier).

seriously a great ride :thumbup:
can't get any better...as for the attempt to lose some of its weight, I would say just ride the bike as it is and gradually
improve it further, 6741 gr is pretty good i would say.

okay, here's something that won't help on reducing the weight, but IMHO does help "enhance" the package a tad further..

may not get along with everyone's taste though...though personally i think it looks fantastic on the SLR01

a Bora Ultra 80 :thumbup:
damn how i just love the graphics!!

cheers!
