My 2012 supersix. What would the best bang for the buck purchase to help drop some weight?
Things that I wont change:
-I would like to get a lighter saddle, but at the end of the day this is the only saddle I have used that has not given me problems. So no matter how much I would like to cut some significant weight with that, it wouldn't be worth it.
-I'm not a Sram fan, so even though I know Sram is lighter, I wont make the switch.
-The Wheels aren't going anywhere, so even though I could get a lighter wheelset, thats not an option financially. Love these wheels.
-My gearing wont change based on the amount of climbing I do. call me a weak, Its what works for me.

First thing that comes to my mind would be getting a Dura Ace cassette. How is the performance on some of the lighter options like KCNC or Recon? I know there are lighter tires as well, but the GP4000's have done me very well.
