How much is the saddle to bar drop? It looks rather big.

Do you have a picture with you on the bike? I believe you, I just want to see how you "use up" all that drop. Do you ever ride in the drops?

Sorry but i have no picture.

I never liked to ride in the drops that much. I like to ride on the brakelevers much more and have the hole bar a bit lower instead of going in to the drops.
The drops i mostly just use for downhill.

Made two more parts for the derailleur. It is the "Backplate" and "Frontplate"
They weigh 4g together, the Backplate (the Y-like) will even hold the spring and the wire (in the same way like the THM Brakes hold the Power Cordz wire)
Around 25g will the derailleur be i guess

Did not do so much with the Bike in the last time. But ordered a lot of parts the last two weeks which i´m waiting on.

- waiting for the new Ultralightsport cirrus ti pedals. Will save around 70g on the bike and the cleats + my new S-Works ´74 Shoes will save 160g on me :)
- new Tires - dugast silk strada wich should save around 100g and ride a lot smother then the one i have on right now.
- Ax Orion Brakes which i got cheap - will tune them and save around 50g
- tune skewers which i will tune - will save around 14-15g

And maybe a new fork - the Scapula Sp tuned which i´ll built expanderless in the bike (just some carbonplates inside to take the tension and an thin plate tho close the top) - the fork would save around 25g i guess

A lot of weight saving on the way. Always amazing to see dedicated weightweenies especially well documented ones like this.

The post takes it´s time with the new parts. But today i got my new skewers.
They weigh 17g right now but i have to shorten the rear axel and change a bit on the front as it does not fit that well right now.
Should be 16g in the end and save 16g to the skewers i used until now.
will see if i leave them gold or make them silver.

Had to make a little Carbonshim for the Frontskewer as he Ritchey Fork is to slim at the drop outs to work with the Skewer. (the Skewer touches the Wheelaxel and i can not take off more materiel there)
The lightly tuned Skewers + the Shim have now exactly 17,00g and i´ll leave them there right now. A bit to funny to keep tuning them for 0,0xxx g as i have a lot other parts which will give a lot more :roll:

Got my new Brakes today. Without the Brakenuts they had 93g.
I changed the Cabeladjustment to the ones from my old Brakes and together with the short Brakenuts they have now 93g. To that you can count 25g for the Brakepads.
I will make them mattblack as the glossy finish not fit that well with the rest.
Than i will tune them with carbonsprings, new axels and so on...hope to get them down 15g or more.
The new Brakes take the Bike down to 4318g right now :)

Today i got the new Pedals.

They look really nice and feel "trustable". Did not test them yet but they feel nice and the cleats sit tight and click in and out nicely.

Will save around 70g on the bike and the new shoes + cleat save 160g to my old sidi + speedplay cleats.

On the last photo's I still see the old derailleur.
Are you making any progress on your new one?
