8.3kg

Dengfu FM086 BB30 with house brand basebar and extensions - 52cm
HED3 + Vittoria Crono CS 22mm
RENN Disc 10sp + Vittoria Tangent 22mm
11-22T 10sp converted 2 ultegra 6800 cassettes (11-18t from an 11/23T then the 20,22T from an 11/32T)
6800 Deraileurs
DA 11sp Shifters and Brake Levers
DA9000 pedals
56T Osymetric (1x11) - 3mm thick before ramps or pins
Cannondale Stages Powermeter
Adamo Racing2
KCNC Ti skewers
Zipp Garmin aerobar mount

Notes on the frameset:
Setup was fairly straightforward, no cable stops so you need full length housing, which is fine, shifting and braking are wonderful.
Elbow pads came with double sided adhesive, it can be removed just have to be careful it does tear the foam.
The amount of adjustment of the front end is amazing for this pricepoint, it was hard to get used to the straight extensions because I was used to the ski bend.
25mm wide wheels fit but 25c tires do not.
Front end doesn't seem as stiff as it looks, that is pure observation, plenty stiff though.
Initially getting it painted matte black, but realized I don't like matte paint. So I polished the frame which turned out nice, should have gotten it cleared to begin with.
Just need to get some black SI bolts.

Why did you modify a new cassette and not just go with an 11-23?

A friend let me borrow the wheel without cassette for our state TT, and it's not 11sp, so I had to figure something out. every other time I ride my 50's with the 6800 11-23T cassette, as seen on the Allez. eventually I'll get an 11sp disc
