Hello all,
I'm a long-time lurker of this forum, but this is my first time posting!

It's a 2016 Cervelo R2 which originally came with 105 componentry.
The first thing I've done is switch the stock wheelset with Campagnolo Zondas, which shaved off 300-400 grams.
So far, I've upgraded to DA 9000 components except for the cranks, of which I ended up going for Rotor 3D+ with Power2Max and aero Q rings.
I also have changed the stock saddle to a Chinese "GUB" carbon saddle (150g spec), which I find surprisingly comfy.

Current weight of the build is 7.4 KG (w/o bottlecages & garmin mount)

My ultimate goal is to get the bike weight down to 7Kg under a reasonable budget.

I'll be doing the following next:
- Changing Shimano skewers (120g?) to Zipp Ti Aero skewers (65g spec)
- Changing random inner tubes (Assuming 110/tube?) to Vittoria Latex tubes (75g/tube spec)

But after that, I'm somewhat lost on where to shave weight from.

The first things I can think of are the 3T bars and stem.
I believe they are OEM parts for Cervelo, but I can't find much weight information on the bar and the stem.
The bar just says 3T Ergonova (non-pro/team) and the stem just says ARX.

What would be good cheap-ish upgrades from here to reduce the weight as much as possible?

Things to note are:
- Not willing to go tubular
- Trying to stay under $500 if possible

Whack the 50mm cap off that steerer tube, and you get weight savings for zero expense :)
