Hey guys, I recently bought a second hand tarmac for a bargain and I'm keen to drop some weight off of it.
It currently is running Ultegra 6870 Di2 which is quite heavy. I had sram red 22 on my previous bike and love the ergonomics and feel of the group but I just don't have the dough to buy it right now so I was thinking I would buy sram force as it is just as good and is a fraction of the price. Also I would swap the sram force crank for a sram red one as that is where a majority of the weight difference of the two are. Thoughts on that??
I was also looking to swap out some parts to shave off some weight and would like some suggestions! Keep in might I am on a tight budget so I can't splash out on some super light carbon kit that'll cost an arm and a leg. At the current time the bike weighs 7.24kg
