I have a stock specialized roubaix comp with full 105 (yes if i knew at the time i may have gotten the rival version that was offered if i was smart and knew rival was about 8/10 of a pound lighter, but i did not). anyway, i have the stock everything on it, including the fulcrum racing 6 wheels (which i think are same as fulcrums racing 7 wheels which weigh in around 1850 grams). i am probably going to get a set of ksyrium elite wheels (should drop it about 250-300 grams i think). is this worth it? anything else i could do to drop some weight? bike weighs in around 18.5lbs stock or actually 20.8 lbs with small bag with tube and co2 cartridge, cadence sensor and one water bottle cage. that imho is too much, considering i am not the best climber and would like to help myself out on climbs. help?

its going to be a big ask to make this into a WW

wheels/tyres etc - big gains
seat post/bars/stem - good VFM if you shop wisely
saddle - ditto
bolt tuning ?? is it worth it on 105 ..
