Still... I really can't see the problem in 105 and FC? None of them are complete light weight. It's not a high end model/brand. They are reliable and it works.

A small update:
Bought a Dash Aero.7 saddle. Newer thought such an expensive saddle should be have such an ugly finish. But hey... It looks cool and is semi light at 115gram. for the re-enforced with triple padding. Just need to give the cover another color. Think i will go for the same leather as the grips..

Curious about the comfort of the custom hoods. Kudos for the work and weight loss though...

Personally, and not to be rude, its ridiculous that you won't ride rubber hoods or normal bartape to save weight when you could save more weight running Ultegra and different wheels. I don't get it.

I don't think you are rude. Not at all. The wheels are 202 and the group are Force22. I think i can justify riding cotton bar tape and leather hoods :)

Was there any problem fitting the Stronglight to the "hidden bolt" system?

None at all. I used another bolt, as the one in the force chainring is fixed. So i just loosened the three screws ind the spider, fitted the chainrings and the put everything together again. Easypeasy.
