Having had success with the komm-vor+ I moved it to the winterbike and ordered a MCFK in matte for the venge.

Saved another 10g :)

So just weighted it with the new wheels and saddle and I also glued the Di2 junction box to the stem so I got rid of the ugly rubber strap (and saved 2g in the process).

New weight (w/o Garmin): 6,50kg
Will get some pics once the weather gets better so I can get out.

Still have to glue the tires so that should add roughly 30g.

As it sits now:
Frame: Specialized S-works Venge 2013 Size 54
Group: Shimano Dura Ace Di2 9070
Crankset: S-works FACT carbon
Bottom bracket: Ceramic Speed OSBB
Chainrings: S-works 53/39
Chain: KMC X11SL
Wheels: 2014 Zipp 404 Firecrest Tubulars
Tires: Veloflex Extreme/Carbon with Zipp extenders
Skewers: Tune DC14 silver (with added springs)
Stem: S-works SL 120mm
Handlebars: S-works carbon 42cm SS
Tape: Lizard skin DSP white
Saddle: Mcfk Matte 3K 130mm
Bottlecages: S-works Carbon Rib cage
Computer: Garmin 500
Powermeter: Quarq Specialized FACT
Pedals: Speedplay Cro-Mo
Other: Seatpost battery, Racewaredirect Garmin mount, Shimano R610 sprinter switches, Extralite topcap

Future plans include black bar tape since the saddle is no longer white it just looks off, will have that done before the first outing. Thinking about getting some tuned pedals that should save me about 75g.

Dude, that bike is sick. How do you like the MCFK saddle, and what else have you tried (prior to the tune saddle)

Fantastic. I've just built up a 54cm S-Works Venge myself and I'm really, really enjoying it. I haven't had a chance to throw it on a scale yet so I'm glad take away some ideas from yours! Chapeau!

Thank you all for the kind comments!

Nifty: I started out with a romin evo 155mm which I rode last season. I never got really comfortable with that saddle. Im super pleased with the mcfk, it fits me perfectly besides looking great.

Imaking: looking forward to seeing your build :)

This bike is no more, crashed and burned (well not really, it just cracked).
Got a 2015 sworks tarmac to replace it, will get a build thread up soon.
