I have a carbon no padding saddle to try out as well as a Williams Ionic CCS (185g) seatpost yet to install. By my calculations I have about another 150g to save with those, though I am pleased with the current weight. Please forgive my steer tube length, I am getting my fit dialed in and I only want to have to cut it once. Measure twice, cut once ;) I traded in the stock crankset for the Ultegra one in order to use my Stages power meter. The black 5700 and the dark grey 6800 match well enough that no one has noticed without me telling them that they are different.

I love how the bike handles and feels. The big low pressure tyres and the compliance in the frame make for a very comfortable ride. I love direct feeling I get the moment I start to pedal. This bike just wants to go and it brings a smile to my face every time I get to ride it.

Super clean (even if you did take the shots at the wrong end of the cassette and chainset ;) ).

What do the wheels weigh? I actually expected this to be closer to 7kg.

D'oh! I knew I was forgetting something with the setup. Today was my R3's day off, I commute on my Jake.

The wheels weigh 1551g with rim tape. I didn't go for the lightest hub set as I have a tendency to put deep gouges in aluminum hub bodies so I went for the ti hub body and the general reliability of the T11 hubs.
