round off the back off the bolt head so it can swivel in the pin.
this is a test bolt,
should be getting longer titanium ones in a couple of days

If you sum up al the listed weights it weighs 7019grams, which is much more realistic for this build with some heavy parts (stem, handlebar, seatpost, wheels)
I Will make the leap

I agree 6.6 looked too good to be true there

BTW, this is some serious seatpost tuning :shock:

I too thought that when I put the bike on the scale from my list of weight didn't add up.
I weighted the parts on my digital kitchen scales and the whole bike with luggage scales, some of the parts on the list are estimates as I didn't get to weight them, I will get the bike weighted at my LBS, they have a Park tool one so should get a more accurate reading.
I have since lost 18g from my bb and with the seatpost mod another 69g.

Heres the finished pics.
213g down from 282g not bad for £28 for everything post included!

Did some more tuning to the post as I wanted to get the weight of it down more, so I bored out the rest of the remaining head with a hole saw, took more material of the yokes and the cradle.

Now from 282g to 189g a total saving of 93g.

I also got the dremel out on the carbon bottle cage which started out at 26g now down to 16g saving 10g.

The bottle cage mod.
