Ok finally built it up and it's 13.71 as shown. Need a computer and dialing-in (ie saddle isn't angled right) but that's it


60cm frame and matching fork
Full 2013 SRAM red shifters/der (the newest stuff)
Honkin FD clamp (LBS special)
Hollow tech cranks/factory rings
Speedplay X1 pedals BTP tuned
Bonty xxx lite carbon tubulars
Continental Sprinter tubular tires
Zero G brakes
KMC X10 SL chain
Token cassette
Selle Italia SLR saddle
FSA seat post
Apparently OEM seat post clamp
Easton EC90SL bars (not carbon)
FSA stem
Ascent cages
random cables
Nashbar carbon look bar tape
Carbon look end caps

I am ordering a carbon FD clamp. I suspect the seat post is a beast as its got dual adjustment screws and a giant mechanism. Unsure about bars but prefer carbon just for look and feel. Not certain that will deliver any weight savings.

I suspect any minor weight gains from swapping FD clamp will be offset by adding a comp.

Anything else obvious here to shave more grams?

Also what's a good, simple, and light comp. to consider? I had flight deck on prior bike but obviously need something new for SRAM.

Nice and as the owner of a 2010 SS I'd like to compare

Can you post weights and pix of the bike on a scale?
There's sometimes a buggy.

So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

I think seat stays are way over-rated. Probably shave another 100g, and think of the comfort it will add!


Seriously though, I'm quite jealous. Can't wait to see pics...

I see the moderator moved me to the vanity section. But I actually had the following questions now that the build is done:

1. Any obvious areas to shave more weight? I spent some time last night looking at listings and other sites, didn't see any big areas to shave weight from bars or post which I thought might possibilities.

2. I need to add a comp, want something fairly simple, prefer wireless, but above all, light!!! Thoughts?
