From the looks of your saddle position, you could probably loose some weight by using a straight seat post.

I have considered that, but the Canyon seatpost should be one of the best comfort carbon seat posts.
Thanks for you're reply :)

Conti Supersonic tubes, Veloflex corsa 23mm tyres. That should save you about 80gms for not much spend.

Other than that it would be a new stem (Extralite maybe), post and or crank, in ascending cost order!

Oh and I almost forgot some EE brakes.

Remember the Canyon needs a 1 1/4 stem ;) I will look at tubes and EE brakes though ;)

i have about 200 dollars for this saving.

Thanks your reply! :beerchug:

For $200 you could go with either some used Ciamillo brakes or Planet X CNC brakes.

Neither are going to be as good as DA, for sure The Ciamillos are close enough though.....unfortunately the tires/tubes are not going to get you there so you are going to need to make concessions to reach your goal.

I think i can take about 30g on tubes, 80g on seatpost, 15g on bolts, 10 on fork. so thats 130g/ish.

Latex tubes, bottle cages, planet-x brakes, cables, seatpost and seat.

Ti spindle if you don't want to change pedals.

It's a good effort.

Yes - see cages and cables as an option

Pedals also - what about Blade Tis?

It's really the wheels that need upgraded to tubs to get down to mid 6s.
