That's some serious weight savings on tires alone! What size were the Contis and what size are the Veloflex?

The slam that stem headset cover was a direct fit with the included fsa headset ? We're any micro spacers needed for correct height ?

Want to use one on my rm01

Yes but not perfectly. There's a slight vertical gap and some diametral overlap... I didn't use any spacers below or above the headset cover. If you PM me a reminder ill take a close up pic for you.

I ran into a snag.... I added weight via a cassette spacer, and some chain links needed. Then they weren't able to fully complete the rear brake installation and have to order the parts for it. With the above added, Veloflex swapped, and the three cables done I added two ounces

And the rear shifting isn't dialed in 100%. :(

If the Conti are 4000s with Chili I would put them back on and have the better rolling resistance. Weight is not the only thing you need to work about. The Conti's with latex will roll better. Look at the whole picture which I think you are almost doing. You have aero and weight but don't forget rolling resistance. Also the Conti's normally have better flat protection which gets you to the end with less issues.

They are with Black chili... Well see how the Veloflex perform tomorrow. I read from multiple people they are a close to tubular feel.

I couldn't stand the Veloflex Corsa, so I am trying Zipp Tangente. I added 140 grams in the name of comfort. I did 50 Saturday and the Tangente are miles better; road feel, compliance, and cornering each eclipse the Corsas'! New weight and AICAN pics soon!
