Was going for Ultegra chain but switch to KMC X10SL instead. Showed 244g on my scale.

Ya, Alfonze, DuraAce skewers are kind of heavy. Will be using KCNC, shows an impressive weight of 45g. The CB1 brakes are also very light at one hundred sixty something. Know nothing about them. Although You're right, very solid on the Shimano's skewers. Took a pic of my KCNC.

Sorry for taking so long guys. But it's getting closer :) . Received the Veloflex Corsa 22 tires today but boy! I am disappointed! Put one of them on the scale and showed 202g! What happened to the 180g? I live in an area with a higher center of gravity? Well, another 42g gain.

Another issue with Deda Superzero seatpost in white. Posted 166g just about everywhere, and got 199g on scale! My initial intention was to get the bike to under 15lbs, we'll see :( .

Nice budget (not a small budget that is) build with zipp cranks and DA wheels:-)
Whats the weight of the cranks with BB?
Sorry to hear that tires and seatpost are that much heavier then planned. My syntace P6 post is claimed 205gr and on the scale it is 172gr:-)
Tires (Vredestein frotezza tricomp) are claimed 225gr and were 223gr when new, now a bit weared out and are under 220 each.

Well, Zipp crankset purchased used w/ ceramic BB (under 1000 miles) and the wheels were from eBay winning bid (new) :D . Both were great deals. The VumaQuad w/BB, 2 steel washers and a wave ring weigh ~590g (my scale only shows 10g fraction).

Although the seatpost weighs more but like the look on this bike :) . There might be a future upgrade...... Pics soon to come on complete bike.

The bike's just about done. No pedals, no cages, no computer. It has come to 6.25kg on my scale.

Weight without pedals and cages doesn't count. :smartass:

Replace the white cable housing with red and blue seat to white, May be the stem to black? Bar tape? What do you guys think? Please give some suggestions. Thank you :) .

remove blue tape, put yellow plugs (42g>6) and you will have around 1388g

... this may be difficult, but:

Headset cap -> black
Spacers -> white
Stem -> black

This reflects the colour pattern of your seatclamp/seatpost/seat which is black/white/black.
Just a suggestion.

Oh, and I may have missed your answer to this question if it was already asked: why the Eggbeater pedals?
For road you'll be much better off with a larger platform such as Time, Look, Shimano, etc road pedals.

Unless you're going with mtb setup just out of familiarity or a desire to use mtb shoes? Which is reasonable for your own needs of course.

Really nice looking build. Deda Sueperzero weight based on shortest length. You can have your seatpost cut as long as length in frame exceeds minimum required, and fit Ti bolts to bring weight down.
