Hello all

My first post so I would like to introduced my bike, a 2012 S-works Venge Project Black with a semi custom build weighing it at 6570g. Sorry I have no pics of the parts on the scales and the frame/fork has been weight as a partial build. A set of climbing wheels (maybe AX lightness 24s) is on the wish list, but if you have any ideas on other easy changes to shed some weight I would be really interested.

Components Spec: Weight (g)
Frame/fork S-work Venge 54 :frame,fork headset, BB, rear drop outs, cables, + random bits Cut steer tube (-33g) 1706g
Set post S-works 171g

bottle cage bolts as supplied with frame (4 off) 6g
Cranks SRAM RED 2012 52/38 630g
Pedals Dura ace 248g
Front Derailleur Centaur 10 92g
Rear Derailleur Record 11 172g
Shifters Record 11 333g
Cassette chours 11 (12-28) 236g
Chain Record 11 241g
Front wheel Zipp 404 firecrest tub 588g
Rear wheel Zipp 808 fricrest tub 898g
Front Tyre conti tub 22mm 211g
Rear Tyre conti tub 22mm 219g
Front valve extender Zipp 404 2g

Looks great, a little bit of envy of the weight. I have to look over my bike to see where the heavy parts are since there's almost 1000 gram difference. But it's good to have a project during the winter.

Nice bike, I recon you need to desticker the 808 though. Is the weight calculated or actual weight from a scale?

Thanks all, removing the decals off the 808 is on the list of things to do, as is taking the brand name off the forks....should save me a few grams!

The weight is complete bike weighed on the scales at work, then measurements weights for everything I could easly remove...so calculated weight for the below:

- wheel break down rear, wheel weighed with cassette fitted, claimed weight of cassette used to split the two.
- crank not removed claimed weight used.
- the left over delta was added to the total frame weight hence the 1.7+kg of frame and fork etc.

Mrbruhn - I think the 1kg will be split between, Di2, wheels, brakes and the fact you are on a 56" not a 54".

I really want to get below 6kg, not sure in can without a wheel swap!

You are spot on, I'm having the same thoughts myself. Maybe switch some parts from Di2 parts from ultegra to dura ace may help, also looking to switch the dura ace brakes to something lighter. The wheels are not on the light side so some lighter tubulars will be fitted for next season. I hope you will get sub 6, it's inspiring to follow since we have the same frame and I for starters want to go sub 7.

Are you sure its a weight savings going to Di2? Everything i've looked at shows Campy SR slightly lighter then 9070.

Don't think the Di2 is a weight saving but wanted to try the system and was willing to make a little sacrifice :) now I just have to deal with what I've got and make the best of it. I've looked around today and a light wheelset and lighter tubulars will save of aprox 400 gr so that will be a good start.

I was thinking about a 303/404 combo as a race wheelset.

303 / 404 would be sweet, a lighter option 303 all round!

I would trade the Red crank for a SWorks with Praxis Rings, which should save around 80 grams and fit the part better.

I would love to ride a Venge
