Frameset weight seems to be close to claimed. This is a 52 with the SRAM GXP BB92 Bottom bracket Installed and derailleur hangers @ 1065g:

Seatpost, uncut @ 192g:

I'm going to need to source a lighter bolt, holy smokes is that a heavy clamp bolt:

I'll post more later.

Thats a 52? I thought it was a 56 from the head tube length!

@dudemanppl

It's a little deceptive since the HT starts above the lowest part of the DT and is lower than the TT. It's 13cm HT for a stack of 52.6mm, which is about the same as the Fuji Altamira in S/M.

A few more parts for tonight, then I'll get into the proprietary parts that will make this a challenge to stay in the 13lbs range.

The fork is respectable, and should be under 300 when I lop off a couple more cm (hopefully). Crown race is molded carbon. Scott Foil Team Fork @ 311g (a little already cut off):

Image

Syncros Headset @ 63g

Image

Good ol' SRAM Red GXP Quarq in 53/39 @ 760g:

Image

That'll be an easy place to drop 50g by replacing the rings.

Should I sand these again? Doesn't save much weight but keeps the visual flare to a minimum. From my Litespeed:

Woah, light fork! I noticed you kept the steel chainring bolts on the Litespeed, why tho? Easy like 10g right there. And yeah the stack numbers are about right, thats weird.

Nope, SRAM Red ships with alloy chainring bolts that are about 10g for the set.

Ryan, this one interests me more than your Cervelo. When I was time trailing I was on a Scott Plasma 2 and loved that bike. At the weights so far a sub 13 lb bike is very doable.

I bought a titanium bolt for a Ritchey 1bolt seatpost (M6x55mm) that weigh ~ half (7,52g).
1 vote to sand the cranks
The fork is really light, my wilier zero.7 fork weigh 375g.

This is going to be great. Still riding the Ostentatious Cervelo for now?

I'm in the process of selling off the Uber parts on the Cervelo so it's semi out of commission until I get some replacement parts. I have another etap upgrade kit coming soon so in the mean time I'll harvest that too off the Cervelo.

Getting this under 6kg will be hard. I'll post some more scale shots later today which will show why. An order from Toronto cycles will definitely be necessary.

Okay, so to continue on with the small parts. For those of you that overlook the small parts, this is where you can get killed weight-wise. I'll definitely need some input on tuning these.

Stock cage bolts, will be replaced with alloy bolts 17g --> 2.8g:

Image

Seatpost internal binder @ 20g (bolt seems to be alloy and is drilled and internally threaded, not going to be able to do much with that):

Image

The item on the right is the cover for the seatpost binder and the one on the left is the BB hole cover:

Image

Headset cover and spacers, don't need all of these @ 37g:
Image

Only need 17g worth:
Image

The biggest offender, the fork expander @ 47g with top cap. Since the fork is 1.25, I need something that can expand up to at least 27mm, most are rated at 25mm:

Image

Top cap and bolt by itself, will dig out Extralite bolt:
Image

Cable stops made of alloy @ 8g:

Image


Huge expander
Image


Want this instead:
Image


So, that's about 100g of additional "stuff"
