Pro-lite 30mm deep rims on Novatec hubs with sapim spokes & aluminium nipples. Continental GrandPrix tyres & Supersonic 50g tubes

Image

Basic spec CAAD with Tiagra bits

Image

Removed the shimano SPDs & put some speedplay pedals on (207g)

Image

then removed the Tiagra cranks for some dark grey Ultegra cranks (696g)

Image

Looks better now

Image

Changed the saddle to the Fizik Arione team (205g) because it matches the colours and & cut down KCNC seatpost (141g)

Image

Image

next will be Ultegra brakes

What's happened with your bars/hoods? Can you even reach the brake levers when riding in the drops?

Yeah, they've been adjusted now. Accidently had them angled stupidly after I changed the stem lol

Its 8.4kg on my bathroom scales. Do you think i'll be able to get it under 8kg?

Wheels, tyres and tubes. Maybe some Planet X CNC brakes.

are the CNC brakes much lighter than Ultegra? How do they perform brake wise? I need strong dependable brakes.
These Tiagra ones will be going soon

Great project, but valve caps add weight ;)

The PX brakes are much lighter than the Ultegra, somewhere in the neighborhood of 140grams or so, in fact.

Looks great so far! Keep up the good work!
