and I'm working on the third bike. I have an:

2016 Orbea Orca OMR w/D-A Di2
Vision Trimax 35's(just lost an eBay auction for Metron 55's)
S-Works Power Pro saddle
Zipp SL-70 Aero bar
Enve stem
FSA SLK 32 seatpost
Current FSA "K Force" brakeset
Look Keo Blade Ti's

7.21kg


2013 Wilier Zero.7 with same components except:
Ritchie SuperLogic seatpost
Roval CLX 50's
Sram e-Tap
Sram Red cranks/brakeset

6.66kg(don't like that set of numbers, so another upgrade has to be made).

The third and last bike is a 2014 Cervelo Rca. It currently weighs 6.12kg with:
Enve 3.4's
Zipp SL Rotor crank with Praxis Rings (52/36)
Sram Red 10 Speed groupo.
Zipp Bar and stem,
Enve seat post and Fizik Chameleon saddle.
Look Keo Carbon Ti pedals.

What do I have to do to get the weight down to 4.98/5.44kg's without resorting to Lightweight hoops/saddle/stem and THM cranks/brakes?

I would make a list with weights and check if there are lighter components from other brands!

I just purchased the Rotor cassette($$$'s)to swap out the RED version and went for Q-Rings "Quarbon" chainrings to aid the knees. To my dismay, I gained an ounce to the Wilier! I'll now look into a lighter cable housing for both the Wilier and Orbea.

As for the Rca, I'll look into the Ax Leaf saddle as a start.

Hi there,

Quick question. How do you find shifting with the Rotor cassette? I was given one as a gift (currently using Dura Ace or Ultegra depending on need) and from what I'm looking at in the tooth profile I wonder if it's any good at shifting.

Thanks
