Do you know the actual weight of that carbon stem?

looks much nicer in the flesh!



is that the actual weight?


The orig STEM not using Ti bolts, replacing them to Ti will reduce 120mm under 120g.

Anyway, I just replaced the xxx combo to a stiffer combo.
My almost 90kg needs a stiffer setup.

Here's the 5.9 sz 52cm. Very comfortable ride, stiff enough, and only 226g heavier than the 7-series in a 54cm.

That was overall, meaning same components swapped from the 7 to the 5 series. With SRAM Red, D3 clinchers Bontrager carbon cockpit, cages, Look Keo carbon pedals, and Barfly mount, weight is 14 lbs 13 oz. Your Ultegra is probably heavy?

yes I have weighed up a durace 9000 upgrade and that saves me exactly 1lb, but then its still going to be 16lb with full carbon parts and a decent weight wheelset. either that or the scales are goosed as i weighed it in the past and was within the 15lb region. I think ill change the scale batterys and see what happens lol.

Thanks
