First post so I figured I'd make it here. The bike is pretty much perfect for me. I'd like to get new pedals and bars, which would both save me a little weight to hopefully get me under 7kg. Just had my first ride on the new wheels this morning.

EDIT 3/27/15: I've changed some stuff around and wanted to post update pictures. Enjoy!

Coming from a set of Chinese Carbon 38mm's and Mavic Aksium and Kysrium's, it's like night and day. The wheels are amazing, so much faster than I expected. The hubs are ridiculously smooth and spin forever, plus they sound really good. I'm not sure if its because of the wider profile or the deeper rear, but they definitely feel more aero than the 38's I had. We had some pretty strong wind yesterday and I didn't notice anything in the cross winds. Unfortunately I haven't really ridden anything else long enough to be able to make a comparison between.

Lovely :)

I've managed to lose around 800g from my Izalco Pro, so getting under 7kg for you shouldn't be too tricky.

great bike! very harmonious settings, and frameset looks lovely!

just wheelset with different deepness of the rims does not meet my taste.

There should be an arrow on the tire.

I made some changes recently and I have some updated pictures and weights for you. I swapped out my Ritchey stem for a Thomson. It weights a little more but the Thomson is both longer and has more drop. I also went on a little ebay shopping spree and picked up a new seatpost clamp and top cap/compression plug/bolt. I was also able to cut about 5mm off the steertube after I installed all this.

Old Stem: Ritchey WCS Carbon 110mm w/ Ti bolts - 124g
Image

New Stem: Thomson X2 120mm w/ Ti bolts - 146g
(Original bolts were 16g, Ti bolts were 9g)
Image

New Seatpost Clamp saved me 17g. New one is 10g
Image

New compression plug assembly is 36g lighter! New set up is 22g
Image
Image



Bonus weights of things from when I took it apart!

Focus branded 3T fork, cut and with headset race installed - 300g
Image

FSA carbon headset, without lower race - 59g

Gorgeous bike! My winter bike is a Focus (admittedly a cheapish one) but it rides really nicely. I do like the simple tube shapes on the Izalco frames and the weight is always good.
