Ok, thanx for your opinions
But, i don't have the budget for the moment to buy some carbon wheels.
So, i want to upgrade my bike, but wheels aren't an option.
Where could i upgrade it?

i prefer eA90 stems to the ec90

If you can't get wheels now, just save up and ride

I upgraded the stem to a Syntace F99 and the handlebar is now a Syntace Racelite 7075. It looks much 'cleaner' now.
I also changed the brake and shift cables to white-ones.

I'll post a picture in a couple of days

Stockie,

Here are a few suggestions in regards to finishing off the build.

Big suggestion - high dollar

- pick up some of the KCNC CB1 brakes. They work very well and for the price, they are the best light weight brakes going.

Small suggestions - low dollar.

- Fibre-Lyte carbon pulleys. They are very light and you can get them in several different designs.

- Tune Gum Gum or Extralite Ultrastar expanders

- Fibre-Lyte carbon top cap

- Aluminum bolt for top cap

I was able to get the Tune Gum Gum and paired it with the Fibre-Lyte carbon top cap and aluminum bolt to come in at 13g which is great weight savings.

- Ti bolt kit for the Syntace Stem

- Lunar Lite tubes would be a light weight addition to the wheel.

- OmniRacer Skewers - These are 40g each and will save a lot over what you currently have.

- Aluminum bolts for the bottle cages and for other bolts on the rear derailleur and front derailleur

If you are thinking about the Tune Gum Gum, carbon fibre cap and bolt, I have a spare one or two kicking around the garage that I can ship your way to help out the build. Just send a PM.

I don't have that much money to spend, so i won't buy the kcnc brakes.

The fibre lite pulleys are nice, but don't they wear out quickly?

The Syntace stem allready has titanium bolts

I don't like lightweight tubes, don't want many flat tires...

I do like the idea of the aluminium bolts for the derailleurs. Does anybody know the price for such bolts?
I also thought about the upgrade to a tune gumgum expander, but how do i remove the original star-plug out of the steerer tube?

I think omniracer skwerers are to expensive for the moment...

I bought the Tune wassertrager cages (got a great deal for 2 cages). I save 10 grams with them :lol: , but i bought them for the looks.
I want to paint them white. Any opinions how to paint them?

Maybe i'll consider some lightweight quick releases next year's spring and some other small stuff like alu bolts...

The fork? Go for an Edge 2.0 road, maybe?

Stunning bike you got there, though optically the wheels ask for too much attention. Why not remove the decals from them?
