I am thinking about getting a new Cervelo R5, anything on the list looks like it needs to be switched? Going to a Red cassette would knock off 70 grams for $200. Anything low hanging fruit below that wouldn't cost too much?

ditch the brakes and go planet X. save you money, weight and give better braking

Swap the chain for KMC SL to save weight

I would also buy lighter brakes. Ciamillo would be my choice.
I also wonder, if it is possible to use any "standard" crank with Cervelo. Isn't Rotor one of the heaviest cranks available?

Theese are two components, I would switch on my bike.

I don't think the rotor 3DF is one of the heaviest cranks out there. I use the 3D+ and I love it. If you're also looking for a cheap SRM alternative to install eventually, the power2max meter will fit on your rotor crank.

The palladio team isn't the lightest seatpost in the world. The Dorico LTD is >30g lighter width for width length for length for $25 based on the 3T website vs the palladio team. Or you could get a ricthey superlogic and swap the steel bolt to ti and have a sub 150g seatpost for a little more. Agree on the crank. If no future plans for powermeter I would grab a new SRAM GXP + lighter rings (praxis?) and save 100g over the rotor. Will need some adapters though for the crank. Changing the expander and topcap to extralite will save about 30-40g dependant on the expander/top cap set up for about 80 dollars. Should be a nice build.

Thanks for the replies! Also great brake test.
does the cassette swap make sense? I may swap the stem and seat post to dorico ( if thats the grey one) anyway to get some red color highlights off the bike.

Stock 2013 R5 RED $5900
They weighed one with wheels and everything and I think it was 14.7 with the stock heavy wheels. Mines will be a 58 but with my C24s it should be under 14

I say keep the red cassette. Can pick them up almost new for $100 or so. I got one with a couple hundred miles on it for 89 shipped. Planet x brakes.
