Hello everyone,
I finally built my stealth bike. Here is the part list;

Updated photo;

Scale Photo;

Weight includes bottle cages, pedals, Garmin mount and speed/cadence sensor. Does not include Garmin or AssSaver shown on the photo.

Places I can shave some weight are;
Lighter tires (around 50 grams of saving with Veloflex Corsa's), Done That
Lighter handlebar tape,
Titanium skewers,
Removing one bottle cage,
Weighting without inner tubes. (Yes. You! We all know you did that :P )
I am open for any other recommendations for weight savings :)

Other WW Details;

Campagnolo Chorus 2015 Groupset Weights;
Shifters- 381 (w/ shift cables)

FD- 75
Image

RD- 183
Image

Cassette- 278 (12-27)
Image

Crank- 711 (175mm, 52-36)
Image

BB- 48 (BSA English)
Image

Brakes- 304 (New Chorus brakes)
Image

Chain- 252 (I forgot to weight it. Its competitive cyclists data)

Wheels;
40mm carbon clinchers from Rae. 27mm wide.
Sapim cx-ray spokes
Novatec A291 - F582SL hubs
Red veloplugs.
1500 grams dead with veloplugs.

Great build mate.

How much do the veloplugs add? I have 50x25mm ones and they are 1480 g.

So sad you couldn't reach the UCI limit.

very nice clear lines!

but surprised about the crankset weight..

see: alloy athena: http://gewichte.rennrad-news.de/product ... lu-schwarz

http://www.totalcycling.com/en/Componen ... /cc-8.aspx

is there any reason why the new 2015 cranks are actually heavierthan previous modelz?

Thanks @efeballi.
Veloplugs added 8 grams to my wheels in pair. Rim tape Rae sent weights around 50 grams in pair. Good weight saving.

@vejnemojnen
It's weird, but true. 2015 Campy groups are heavier. Cranks arms are fatter, spider is also fatter. Chainrings are wider now, so thats normal I guess. In advantage, it suppose to be stiffer than the old ones, but I didn't have a chance to compare that.

Ah, you have a C64?? So jealous right now.

Also, stealthy build! Are you going to keep it like that or add some stickering?

yea. Weird saddle it is. C64, says 76 grams on it and weights just over 90 grams...
It is like;

But it is a present from a good friend :)

About the build. I was thinking about Digital Blue Michelin Pro4 tires, but might be too risky.
I will have my pink bottles soon, so maybe pink tape on the tops and thats all. I have no plan for stickers, yet...
But I am open for any ideas :)

I'm not sure about the blue. It is a "strong" colour. Will be hard to sell, if I won't like the look.
So, I need to convince myself first :D

Maybe Veloflex Masters?

Easy to get to the limit-light yokes and cradle and 5mm bolts for seatpost, and lose that 45g compression plug that neco ships. Imagine with light brakes etc.

There is probably another 20g or so you could get with some lighter bottle cages and still have two of them.

Or change the cassette to a 11-23 one with 50-34 chainrings? : )

Brakes could also shred another 20-30 grs imho.

But the bike looks incredibly clean :) Congratz

Thanks for all comments :)

@glepore; I am planning to buy, at least titanium bolts for my seatpost. But if you have any recommendation for me, that I can buy as a set, I would love to see it :)
My compression plug is already changed, its Cane Creek. I had that one extra at home, and realised it is much lighter so I used it.

@Raineman; I already had a pair of Chinese carbon bottle cages. They weren't holding bottle well enough, that I lost one during a long ride, so I bought this.
I prefer using only one cage, and a big bottle; rather than risking to lose a bottle during a ride :)

@vejnemojnen; I think that would be the most expensive weight saving. And still, 50T chainring will look small on the bike; that I don't like it. Brakes can be the next one, but I almost always ride my bike in traffic in Istanbul. I can't risk it from my brakes. Lighter brakes, with the same performance will be really bad in Price/WeightSaving ratio I guess.

Hi. Nice bike btw. As to seatpost, I did buy the J&L yokes and a carbon cradle similar to theirs. I did buy ti bolts from toronto cycles, but I have to say that in between the torque required and the angle that they're at, they stripped out the heads quickly, so I went to steel bolts. The yokes are m5 rather than m6 so there is a reasonable savings there regardless.

Brakes? You might be surprised how nice the planet x are with Reynolds Blues-and you can pick these up for under $100 USD used easily. I went to EE's, which are flat out wonderful, but not "worlds" away from the planet x.

@glepore, thanks for all the information.
I will remember your recommendation and wait for a bargain for the brakes.

Currently, I need to buy new tires. Which are riding nice, have good puncture resistance, ride good and light. All of them in one tire looks impossible I guess :D
So I am open for any recommendations...
