Both of my bikes have Zipp SL70 Aero's and S-Works Power saddles. I'll probably go with THM Clavicula cranks and Q-Ring "Quarbon" Chainrings, THM stem and Enve seatpost, Sram Red calipers and Roval 32's.

What do you think the weight will be?

6-ish - 6.2 or thereabouts. My R5Ca with Di2, eeBrakes and Enve finishing kit is about 5.8kg with Enve 45 tubulars, but I have a Quarq DZero Carbon. You'll save, what, 300g on the crankset but gain about 400g on the wheels, 100g on the brakes and 150-200g on the saddle and bar. Depends on frame size, of course (mine's a 56).

Forgot to mention eTap, Rotor cassette(have this on my Wilier Zero.7)and Look Ti Blades. How about changing the saddle?

I don't need the bars, but I want the bike to be somewhat aero.

3t Aeronova Limited, then? I have the Aeronova Team on my S3 - as a bonus it has a massive reach so you end up with a stem that's 2cm shorter to preserve the same overall position. Saddle-wise I've got an AX Lightness Leaf Plus, but use Selle Italia Kit Carbonio Flows everywhere else (they're about 128g).

Not a RCa , but this is as light as my wallet will go at the moment. 6.27kgs
Size 54, Chorus cassette and alu stem/carbon fizik handlebars. Prolly will lighten it a little more next financial year

If I had an RCA, it would never meet components that don't compliment its purpose. THM crank, EE brakes, SRAM Red mechanical, barstem, integrated saddle/post, and sub kilo tubs. This also limits its use but that's what my S3 is for :)

I just saw EE brakes for the first time an hour ago on the new S-Works in town(1-2 in No. CA!). Didn't know they were $800 a pair. There are no hills where I live and my knees are shot from pushing a 53/12-12-21 set-up for years.

Why mechanical Red over e-Tap?

I would say it's sacrilegious not to make the RCA a lightweight build, but I'll also say it's your bike so you do it your way if you don't intend to use it for hills. It was marketed as a light frame and there's no reason why one would obtain it and make it aero-ish. How about trading it in for a real aero and somewhat light frame instead?

It turns out that the frame is no longer available since only 325 were going to be made which makes it as rare as Hen's teeth, a flying Ostrich and a talking Potato.

The Litespeed TL1s was my dream machine of choice until the Rca.
