So I just built up my 2015 S-Works Tarmac. To be honest, I was expecting a total build weight of just under 14 lbs. I ended up just shy of 15?!

Some due diligence on my build:

- 2015 S-Works Tarmac frameset, 54cm
- Sram Red 22 Drivetrain, 11-28 cassette
- Zipp 202 Clincher wheelset, Spec Turbo tires
- Zipp Service Course SL Stem
- Spec S-Works shallow bend bars
- Spec Tarmac seatpost
- Spec S-Works Toupe saddle
- Spec S-Works carbon crankset + SRM Spider

I've seen other similar builds reported in the mid 13 lbs range. I can't figure where I've added ~1 pound over my target.

Good start would be supplying us with the frame and fork weight.

As well as the other major components...

seatpost, bar and stem are your places to lose weight

Not trying to be snarky, but an inexpensive digital kitchen scale, less than $35 US, would answer a lot of your questions. 8)

Regardless the weight, that thing is going to have an amazing ride feel. Enjoy!

Change to a super light tubular wheelset, seatpost, saddle, and remove the SRM.

Truth, but it's so much easier to have this group do the work for me :D

It's ok light anyway, but you can't expect a "weenie" weight from an off the shelf build!

You only get what you give.

You will need to toil for hours in obscure German websites, consider dropping to 80 kilos to be able to ride that ridiculously expensive seat post, curse the heavens while you are trying to bead together your brake cables, go easy when lubing your chain, stretch that bar tape to use the least amount possible and suffer with the first world problem of how to get a cadence magnet on without a ugly zip tie on your shiny crank arm now that you have a titanium spindle pedal.

...and it will all be worth it.

aside from changing the wheels...the SRM is adding to your bottom line.

Still pretty impressive given the powermeter and a frame that isn't generally known for its lightness. Only thing that would really help is a set of low profile tubbies or some lightweights. Those 202 CCs arnt really as light as they look and changing to tubs would take you down over 200g.

Those black zipp qrs are a tad heavy. Definitely get tubulars hah. It's really nice imo. Trim the steerer? Weenie enough for me, I don't like to get boutiquey.

202's are like 1500 grams. Would be easy to lose 3/4 of a pound right there.

Also, you may be more honest with your weighing, than some I've seen here. Sometimes people quote weights based on published values that they add up, instead of actual weights. Some leave out pedals, etc. to get that number down. I guess its human nature. I've seen some pretty ridiculous weight claims here. The vast majority are honest, but..........

303 CC's are 1500g. 202's are in the 1400g range. You can also lose some weight going with a lighter (smaller) cassette, but nowhere near the 1lb you are looking for.
