Bike currently weighs 7.74 without the bottles and the bike bag

Bit of advice needed is the following a good buy to save weight and upgrade

3t ergosum carbon road handle bars

Kcnc super light brakes front and rear

Upgrade to 10 speed campagnolo probably record with carbon levers

Might want to add a little weight by installing a chain that is long enough?

Nice just agreed to buy one myself with dura ace kit. Always wanted one so excited again. I think you have a great set of shifters and mechs but the bike needs a silver campagnolo chainset and wheels witha few more spokes. however how it rides is more important and when i rode a customers after working on it i thought wow i have to have one. I love the huge bb bearings. Thag is pressfit done right Although the axle is b**** to remove when you have to.

You should clip those cables / housing down to proper length up front.
