Yeah I had a Ti Pro Lite post on my 5200 at one point too. Problem is no setback, and it started to creak after a few years, and I could never remedy that issue. I am not fat either, I only weigh 67kg.

Those black Allez E5s are very smart looking and your upgrades look just right - a very well thought out bike :)

We need a picture with the new parts :-) Regarding the group you can get some 7900 parts quite cheap. The RD is almost 100g lighter and the FD 50g.

Ti-bolts for the bottle cage

Custom hoods made from thin leather.
Startet of with removing the hoods and throwing it on the scale. No big deal there.
Image

Then made made some cuts in the rubber so i could flattened it out on the leather.
Image

Then i draw.
Image

Cut it with a scissors and voila!
Image

Used some spray glue and for now, it's drying. So i will show you the end result, when it's dry and i'v cleaned it up.
It's was though around the corners, and you can tell it was my first time. but all in all. I'll give it 8/10.

Nice frame weight about 1400g without bearings I guess. But that fork is heavy. Is the S-works lighter?

I'd steer away from an AL post on this frame. It ain't so soft and the grams can be removed from elsewhere without sacrificing comfort.
