I would make a list with weights and check if there are lighter components from other brands!

I just purchased the Rotor cassette($$$'s)to swap out the RED version and went for Q-Rings "Quarbon" chainrings to aid the knees. To my dismay, I gained an ounce to the Wilier! I'll now look into a lighter cable housing for both the Wilier and Orbea.

As for the Rca, I'll look into the Ax Leaf saddle as a start.

Hi there,

Quick question. How do you find shifting with the Rotor cassette? I was given one as a gift (currently using Dura Ace or Ultegra depending on need) and from what I'm looking at in the tooth profile I wonder if it's any good at shifting.

Thanks

All good. I'll purchase it from you if you don't want it.

First rule of thumb without sacrificing hoops/saddle/stem/crank/brakes or breaking the bank: you can probably save up to 200g by going WW on your QR & compression plug (Extralite Streeters @ 29g, $135, Extralite Ultrastar 3 @ 6g, $35 -- if you're a little wigged out by the design of it and want a more traditional plug, JRC's is 11g @ $23).

Beyond that, your gram-saved-per-dollar goes down the drain: on the Orbea you can save maybe ~250g by getting 40-50mm carbon hoops depending on which ones. Another ~80g by getting the same seatpost as the Wilier and from there you'll be sacrificing some functionality with the stem or bars (~50g saved by getting fizik cyrano 00, ~30g saved by getting MFCK or Extralite stem).
