Thanks a lot for the answers, guys, have to do some more research on parts!
That crankset is heavy for a single chainring. But I don't know what other 1x options are and you don't seem willing to change it.
Hmm, I haven't found anything cool, there is a Miche Crankset with a similar weight, that uses a super heavy square tapered bottom bracket, and the Rotor 3D Track crankset, at 574g, without chainrings (140g) and without BB...and also at more than double the price of the Omnium.
I might switch it if I find a good alternative. There are some good-looking one-chainring cranks from Sram, like the Force 1 (at 572g), but they're made for 1x11 setup, and I have no idea what chain/sprocket combination might work. Maybe use that crankset with a road chainring? Then I'm not sure on the chainline...
4. There are lighter hubs. Those DA ones are nice, but really even your basic generic Formula track hub runs ridiculously smooth... I mean really ridiculously smooth and nice. In short, DA is nice and bling, but in reality and in this specific instance a bit overkill/overrated for your purposes. You want really light hubs? MACK. There is no equal (afaik)http://www.mackhubs.com/
5. DA brakes are nice, but heavy. On a budget? Consider the Planet-X CNC brakes... Plenty of stopping power, modulation, and plenty light on a budget.
Pedals... Wellgo R226. You don't need toestraps and cages if you're running clips, and if you're not you might as well have a platform instead of a cage which will get banged up when you actually use the bike instead of walking it around all the time
Good points...I'm not sure what to do with the crankset, apart from I already bought it
, I don't want to have any difference in chainline, and I'm not so experienced to mix and match parts, I'd rather have something that is good and proven. But switching the chainring sound like a good idea, I can get a 3/32 specific one, I found a 44T (the lowest for 144BCD).
Those Mack hubs are cool, and they're even cheaper than the Dura Ace ones, also I save around 175 grams, I'll switch with Macks
I already bought the DA brake..the Planet-X one looks good but I think I'll stick to the Dura ace for now, maybe in the future I'll find a cool upgrade. I'll have to do some research on the headset and bottom bracket, if I could save 100grams it might be worth it.
It's a little harder as I can't order anything from outside of Europe (the shipping costs and import taxes are huge).

Standard clipless pedals will be fine. Unless someone is going to strap you in at every junction, and you're planning on putting out 1300w between said junctions, theres no need for going overboard.
I prefer not to use clipless pedals, as I had some bad experiences with them, and I commute/fun ride with casual shoes most of the time. Using toe straps (something from Restrap maybe) looks like a more day-to-day solution and seems safer.
I also want to take this bike for some hard sprints at the local velodrome, and I want to be sure my shoes won't slip. I have the Shimano A600 on my MTB (which are one side clipless, one side flat), they're very light at 286g for a pair, but the flat part is super slippery and non-grippy..it doesn't seem safe if I use casual shoes with it.

I'm not sure how comfortable a sitero is going to be on a fixed bike- need something that you can move around and bounce on. I've got 1 on my tt bike, but not thinking about putting it on my fixed anytime soon.. Cheap slr or similar would fit the bill, and buy an out the back type bottle holder. Profile used to make a 2 bottle version.
Are your Deda weights measured or manufacturers? I've never seen any deda within 10% of claimed.
Junk the tatorskins and get some proper tyres. Conti 4 seasons or GP's in 25 are far better.
I reckon specced smartly you will get close to 6.8kg.
My Dolan precursa in winter road guise is 8.0 but that only cost me £150 complete
I don't know about the Sitero..I imagine with drop bars I'll be leaning forward a bit, but I'm not sure (my commuter had bullhorns and sometimes I got numbness). I found some standard saddles (at around 145g), with padding and everything. But a separate bike holder that mounts on the saddle from Profile Design is 190g (dual cage), and a single one (with room for spare tyre and bag), the Elite Sekane, is 135g. So in the end, it might be the same thing..the Fizik Tritone is 250g including the dual bottle holder and I might get it for cheaper then a saddle + holder.
Deda weights are from the bike shop descriptions...not good if they're actually heavier
I can't find Uno parts for cheap in Europe. I also couldn't find another light stem for track (at 68-70 degrees), I think it looks better if the stem is perfectly straight after mounted, and I want this bike to look cool!
On tyres, I had GP 4000 S2's, but after under 500km I had a 1cm side gash in the rear (making it unusable), and the front got all cut up. I'd rather have something that lasts (also the streets here are pretty rough, and the only velodrome has crumbling asphalt). The 4-Seasons look like a good option, but I'm undecided for now
That aside, looks like a good build. I'd be shocked if you couldn't get a fixed bike below 6.8kg. Glad to see you using decent brakes
Thanks, I couldn't imagine riding without brakes!
If i switch to Mack hubs, get a lighter saddle, headset and BB, I'll definitely be under 6,9 kg, with pedals included!
