yeah, I think most of the weight is in the groupset. I'm like the only other guy on the board running ultegra SL :) and mine is close to 8kg too :(

So if one needs that amount of height in the handlebars what are one's options? Remove some spacers and swap in an angled stem?

Some of the spacers will disappear soon. And the weeds wil go away in the spring.

Great looking bike but to be perfectly honest if you setup is correct the frame is too small.
