This topic is for the Liv Envie owned by my ladyfriend Marloes. She'll be reading this topic too so other female weight weenies are welcome to join in. :thumbup:

We still have to go for some good photos so here's the stockphoto as a placeholder.

Standard it comes to 7 kg (14lbs) but without pedals and bottlecages so it's time to get some tuning done. The agenda is 1- wheels, 2- handlebar & stem, 3- others. The current wheels are fine but we're looking into something light with rims 17mm internal width and a height of around 35mm's. Since she's only 62 kg's I'm thinking of a 16 / 20 setup with straightpull spokes. The hubs could be Powerway (depending on the reviews), aerospokes like Sapim CX-ray or Pillar and a set of Farsports rims (rims are fine but we have to decide on alu/carbon or full carbon).

I Knew it ! I knew it'll come some day, when someone will publish bike equipped in 30mm alu 2kg wheelset, Shimano 2.8kg 105 groupset and will announce proudly 7kg for the whole bike :) . Awesome !

Now I wonder, when 6kg ??? ;)

:lol:

Thanks for the input. We're thinking of a Ritchey WCS handlebar + stem and a set of FarSports wheels with Powerway straightpull hubs to drop some weight. Your suggestions are welcome too. :thumbup:

Yea well, it's an entry level bike. Everything is heavy on that thing.

If you want to make it light, you will have to change the wheels, groupset too, cockpit, etc, and this wouldn't be really clever.

I'd say new wheels, mid profile if she's petite. I really dislike FarSports and LightBicycle rims' quality and poor attention to details, but that's my opinion.

Also contact points. Light saddle and bars that feel good.

7 kg = 15.5 lbs
14 lbs = 6.35kg

so which is it?

Well spotted, it's a calculation error on my side. The website says 7.0kg but I intend to weigh it for real when we start to do some tuning.

@ CDTF,
Fair point, we went for this one because of the budget and the colorscheme (yes :D ). I was thinking of a wheelset with a profile around 35mm. I'm not sure on aluminium or (Asian) carbon rims as she's not the most confident decender.

Light handlebar and stem are planned to but it turns out that a 38cc bar with a flat top is not that easy to find. Most brands stop their range at 40cm width.
