I also ditched the bar end plugs. They have no function on a summer bike as there is not going to be any wet road crud getting in there. The standard cannondale ones were over 20g the pair and I also had some bontrager buzz-kills which were over 80g!!!!!


isn't one of the main purposes of a bar end plug to prevent the bars from impaling your leg if you crash and taking out a 'cookie'. i'd ride with them.

Has anyone out there been able to get there Supersix below 12#? I know I could lose about 80g with Sram Red and hologram cranks. Seems like a hole lotta money for very little gain. I also know I could save about 40 grams with lighter seatpost and cages; however, the bars and stem are about as light as I would get and they all kinda go together. The Ciamillo brakes could be exchanged for kcnc c1 brakes, but then i couldnt use the powercordz. About the only thing I can think of id Fybrolyte carbon rings.

Reading the parts list. Surely there is room for improvement and throwing grams. But of course the current weight is really very good now.
With the development of good luck!
