With a lot of looking over the shoulder at HaroldC
Here is my 2014 ride.

Frame: Specialized Allez E5
Stem: No-name 100mm. - 133 gram.
Bar: Zipp Vukasprint V2 44cm. - 199 gram.
Bar tape: Cotton - 29 gram
Seatpost: Stock Specialized - Will be switch for a 3T dorico
Saddle: Arione - Will be switch for a Specialized Romin Evo Pro
Groupo: Shimano 105 with no decals 2.624 :shock:
Wheels: Zipp 404 FC w. GP4000s 2.255
Pedals: Speedplay 203

All in all, i'm happy. It's a "budget" build and it should be no problem to shed another kilo by changing the group for something lighter.
It's a re-build from a stock bike and a kind of work in progress. For now, it's 8.005kg now and was 8.7 something.

Pic's of parts switched for now:

Those black Allez E5 look tremendous. You've done a great job complimenting that frame. Just need to change that group now...
Gaulzetti Cabron Disc = (weight unknown)
Rock Lobster Team Tig SL Disc = (pending)
Sold: Ridley X-Night Disc = 7.80 kg | Ridley Noah FAST = 6.86 | Ridley Fenix = 6.74 | Raleigh HiLife = 7.46 | Fuji SST = 7.34 | Van Dessel FTB = 7.58

It's seems like you could only lose about 400g by changing the groupset. What are you planning to drop a kilo?

Well. If i change to Red, thats 700gram. off. Even lighter if would chose SR.
Then saddle and seat post, and the i pretty close to 7kg. straight. So... It's not that hard :)

105 with Zipp 404's is awesome. Don't let 'em tell you otherwise.

Great build! Do you have a frame weight? And would it be possible to mount a fact bb30 crankset?

Very nice build! The weight is not that bad considering the group set. I haven't weighed mine again now that I have the 3T carbon seatpost.

I love the 404's with the bike....... now you need to remove the decals. :D

Are you making fun of me :wink:

No problem with the Fact as long as it's bb30

About the decals... I'm really not sure. I like the look of your wheels, but on the other hand. I'm a bit worried that they'll look like china wheels.

Not making fun, 105 is the most underappreciated groupset on this forum. Many a cat 3 race are won on 105 and Rival.

Yes, changing the group won't provide much difference....I would go with an S-Works crank and move on! Great looking ride!!!

That's why I left the 'Firecrest' and '303' stickers. A tiny splash of color that coordinates with the red accents on the group.
