Thought it was about time that I updated this wee thread, I have changed a lot on the bike! New build is shown below, but the changes are fairly simple:
Replaced the Sram Rival groupset with Ultegra 6800. This added a couple of hundred grams, but the performance is night and day so I can live with it.
Replaced the seatpost(saved 140g there alone!) and the stem.
The wheels are the lightest I have, and while I know I could save nearly 100g per tyre with something like Veloflex Record 22's, I love the ride of the FMB's, so that's not happening unless I build a super light set of wheels for occasional use.
Actual weight is 7.2kg
Weight with other wheels:
With my everyday Record/Nemesis wheels - 7.98kg
With my Williams System 58 race wheels - 7.45kg
Replace the cables with I-Links, not sure how much weight this would save, but I would hope for ~50g
Replace the bars, I'm not a fan of the shape and they weigh a ton, so they will be replaced soon. I'm thinking Williams Elan CCS, but not sure.
Possibly get a new saddle, I really like the Paradigm, so may upgrade to the lightest version, should save around 60g if I do.
I'm tempted to try Speedplay pedals as well, which should save another 50-100g depending on if I get a Ti axle kit off ebay as well.
I'm also eyeing up a DA-9000 crankset and rear mech at some point as well if I can find one at a good enough price.
I might order a set of light rims from China and lace them up to a set of the light BHS hubs as a bit of an experiment. But I'm 90kg so I'm a little wary of doing it. Was thinking of doing a 28h rear to stiffen things up a bit, but I'm really not sure if I'll go for it. At best, I think I would save 150g, but I suspect the wheels would be a lot less stiff than the Boras.
I think that's about it, cheers for looking.
