very nice! I'm thinking of getting a Domane some time next year. How's the ride? i demo'ed one about a month ago in Austin and really enjoyed the ride. Is there a reason why you are going away from the IsoSpeed handlebars? I put a set on my bike and they make a world of difference!

The ride is solid and smooth overall. Im coming off a pina fp due and the character and feel is completely different. I have yet to find something i dont like (other than the fact its a trek ;)

Isospeed may be a gimmick, etc. but if it gives me even a mental edge only thats fine. Im happy to sit in the saddle longer.

I never got the padded bars as i had the build done initially with rl bars to keep costs down. I like the pro bars and may try the integrated stem.

bars: bontrager RL

You can place these questions in Intro threads, rather than a new one on the Road forum. Otherwise search will help you greatly

they are claiming a weight of 190 grams thats pretty light already. I use the specialized turbo tubes that are around 70 grams and dont have any problems with them. you could save a good chunk of weight with some of the planet x cnc brakes and they are on sale for $95 bucks right now. Thats about a 100 gram saving. Also what budget are you working with?

There are many places to shed weight. Seat post, cables, headset spacers, seat post clamp that wont break the bank. The Planet X brakes are a great deal. I am very tempted to order a pair myself!

The short answer is... everything. There's nothing on your bike that's super light. Focus on easy $/g stuff like skewers, tubes, cables/housing, chain, and seatpost. Then find one component at a time to upgrade balls out as light as possible and move piece by piece. Big chunks can typically be saved in wheels, crank, saddle, cassette, and shifters. After that, you need to start looking at little details to shave of 10-30g at a time.

thanks all.

i'll go ahead and get the brakes. thanks.

i wonder what a lighter cassette option is... dunno if the dura ace is compatible, or how much bang for the buck i'll get making the change.

saddle and wheels have already been upgraded, albeit maybe not the best choices in terms of weight.

Lightest cassette options are recon alloy/titanium cassettes. Omni racer and kcnc also have lightweight options. SRAM red is compatible as is dura ace, but are heavier but more durable than the options above.
Be careful with brakes, a number of these ultralight options compromise in terms of braking power. Search for madcow's brake shoot out on this forum or on fairwheel bike's cycling blog for an in depth comparison.

No point running QRings unless you really believe they work for you (and even in that case it might be a placebo; search around here for numerous discussions)

There are lighter, stiffer and equally good looking options around (Praxis chainrings seem to be the new cool stuff, for instance).
