Looks nice, but can you resize the photos?

Honestly, I love how it looks as is. Pinarellos aren't known for being light, but they ARE known for being very nice. I say keep it as is and have fun.

Well those were your two cheapest options for saving that much weight. Looks like you'll just have to suck it up and pedal harder. :P

Going from a 2011 Canyon Ultimate SLX with a 6,6kg to this 900g heavier machine is something..

But, thanks for the replies guys!

Lighter tubes and saddle maybe? Brakes (ultegra 6800 is 320g)
The handlebar is t0o nice to remove although it weighs 420g...

No, they're terrible. They atop about as well as Tektro or Shimano non-series brakes. After 6800 brakes, you'll be incredibly disappointed.

Okay, that what I thought :)

Maybe some Ciamillo or whatever they're called?

My first thoughts were to drop the heavy ass bar stem combo. then change out the tires for something nicer and use latex tubes. that should win you 300 grams at least. Segmented cable housing a la nokon will give you some more savings and a more direct lever feel.
Can you cut off some of the seat post?

Wow Dudemanppl, what a way to kick someone in the stomach via your keyboard.

At first I had my doubts about the rims as well, but zooming in on the rims shows some dimple patterns.

I have sponsored wheels by zipp, so why should they be fake?

But thanks for your help.
________
Tubes is the first place i will start :) maybe a saving of 100g?
I have an 3T ergosum ltd carbon handlebar and a 3T arx team 100mm stem.. Will save about 150g.
I wouldn't cut the seatpost for resale value :)
