As the weight came in way to high I’m looking for reducing this. The goal would be just below 8 kg.
Any suggestion where I could shave 450 g. off?
As this is my first build there is a big chance towards the bike will be downgraded to a winter bike – wherefore the upgrades and weight reductions preferably shall kept to a minimum with regards to price.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
