7.55kg with C50's
6.80 with C24's

Focus Cayo 2011, Medium size with all cable bosses removed, holes enlarged slightly then di2 wired in and sealed.
Full dura ace Di2 7900
7900 cassette 11-23 (11-25 on the c24s)
7900 compact chainset 50-39 172.5mm
7900 DA C50 CC wheels with planet x skewers and michelin pro 4's with michelin latex tubes
3t ergonova team bars
3t team stem 100mm

I have an argon 18 gallium pro frameset coming so will be interesting to see how the weight compares after.

PS: the pic shows the horrid silver post clamp..its a black Token one now, much lighter! im also gonna slam the stem this weekend and see how I get on with it..there is a 20mm spacer in there at the moment but I think I could get away with no spacer.

a few grams here and there all counts ;) having clinchers doesn't help that much but I just cannot be arsed with tubs no more.

not sure on the individual weights yet, waiting for my scales for my stand to arrive :)

i used the scales used for packing at work to get the weight..shame i never measured it when it was standard.

Can you tell me how you did your rear brake cable routing? Is the outercable at full length going trough the top tube? Can you make a close up where the cable goes in and out the frame?

Otherwise nice bike :thumbup:

no, the outer cable stops at the frame, then the inner core goes through.

Lets see ... you are carrying around a battery pack, electronic gadgetry and a fangled metal chainset, and you are wondering why your bike is so heavy?

a battery pack that weighs next to nothing in real world use, an electronic group set that is still lighter than most..and a metal chainset that is only beaten by the campag record and super record in weight (out of SRAM, Shimano and campag group sets)

unfortunately I'm not a campag fan...id rather walk everywhere than use it :)

Personally I liked it with the red tyres. Most bikes look better with black tyres, but I preferred yours with the red.

Regarding weight, the issue is that the frame, forks and wheels are all a bit heavy. Swapping all these for light ones could get you to a bit over 6kg I would think, given my Parlee with Mavic CCUs is about 6kg with a basically similar build and only a few added lightweight bits and pieces.

I have the same frame.

What did you have to do to modify it for internal Di2? Was it easy?

I changed my wheels to Mavic Kysrium SL's and an FSA SLK crankset straight away. Just about to change the stem and bars as well after using the original fsa stuff since I had the bike.
