Had my hands on one of these yesterday, I have to say I'm a fan. the 58cm weighed in at 8.1kg neat with Speedplays, Quarq, Cages and K-edge stem mount. Not many areas it can go on a diet tho it seems.

Spec sheet was:
44cm Bars with standard tape and plugs
110cm Stem
R785 Shifters
6870 Mechs
R785 Callipers
140mm Centrelock Ice tech rotors
110mm Quarq/Compact praxis rings
Speedplay Stainless pedals
Dave-O Cages
Roval CLX40 Disk wheelset
Turbo Pro 25mm Tyres

Nice, I test rode the S-Works DA di2 version of that bike at a Specialized demo event.

Rides beautiful, better manners than my SL4 on rough decents and just feels more comfortable to ride IMO.

A fine example of a disc-roadie showing where to save and spend money for a genuine smart build. :wink:

If I want lighter ill jump on my SL4 :p
If I want to be comfortable bombing things I'll ride this. Was never intended as a WW bike being the groupset has a massive penalty weight wise so while I am a fan of that linked bike he can keep the SHAM group and I'll keep my Shimano gear :p

I did notice the differences in frame size and different group set up before my first post here. It was your "Not many areas it can go on a diet tho it seems." expression which led me to link you eliflap's bike ,which IMO is one of the "best (smartest)" builds on WW though it never will get the attention it deserves. Further there is no "Show us your Flyxi" post here.:-)
So sorry for the misunderstanding.
Intention was to show the formula for an excellent mix of frame and components .HNY.
