Hi,

Been a member on here for a long time, but I am finally getting round to making a thread on my road bike. I bought/built it in June last year after my previous bike died in a crash in an RR.

Image

At the moment it's 7.48kg(about 100g more than the theoretical weight which isn't too bad I think), but with a few more upgrades it could loose a lot. Build list is fairly simple:

Image

Have just ordered a set of Campagnolo Record hubs/Ambrosio Nemesis rims as my everyday wheels(still unsure on which tyres to run though).

I think that's about it. I want to get the weight down to 6.8kg in race trim, but not really sure where the most economic places to loose the weight are outwith the usual seatpost/saddle/stem/bars and maybe cranks. Suggestions welcome!

P.S. - Sorry for the terrible photo!

Thanks,

Campbell.

Nice! Like the look of that ride. Your best bet is definitely the crankset....upgrade to SRAM Red exogram and you are almost there!!

Pedals are another place to lose 100g or more.

Thanks for pointing out the pedals, I had overlooked those. As btompkins said, first thing to change is the crankset, I think I should be able to save about 140g there with a switch to Red Exograms. Had really wanted the Hollowgrams but not an option on this frame unfortunately.

I saved 131g's Switching from Rival to Sram Red Exogram GXP Cranks.

Also you don't mention the Handlebars, but if you have the Scott ones that came stock, they weigh 359g, so easy scope to take another 160g there.

If you look at the Link to my CR1 Below, you can see some other changes you can make over the stock items.

The bike was built up from a frame, so the bars aren't stock but certainly aren't light. I think they are around 300g but that still leaves at least 100g if I go to carbon. I'm tempted to stick with aluminium though, the Bike gets raced and crashes are inevitable, any suggestions on light and stiff alloy bars?

Your bike looks great btw!

Thanks,

Campbell.
