That is very useful...

I have made a Google Sheets version which can be added to by anyone with the link...

Groupset Weight Comparison

Added the new Dura Ace 91xx components to it, and cleaned up the existing one.


Kudos to those of you that use spreadsheets. I have encouraged many of you to do this from the beginning. In general, people are too lazy nowadays and prefer to start vague threads where slew of people throw nothing but weights.
Racing is a three-dimensional high-speed chess game, involving hundreds of pieces on the board.

Yes I included the jagwire shifting cable set weight on the mechanical minigroups on all of them to keep it standard as they will need cables and housing, but is you apply minus 118 to all of them you will get the actual weight as published by he manufacturers, no affiliation to jagwire, but following sugarcane recommendation I add them to the calculation, but there are other options on the market that may be lighter and offer better or worse performance.

Anyone want to join me in making a bike version of PCPartsPicker?

That would be amazing.

Excel is the best computer game ever made.

Which Jagwire model is being referred to on the sheet?

Update on parts:
YBN SLA211 Ti chain weight published 207 grams/ 106l with quick link.

Fibre-lyte chainrings if they make a 110 bcd version 52/36.

Those YBN titanium chains are hands-down the best for weight.
But it's a toss-up between saving weight or watts - i.e. whether the CeramicSpeed UFO-treated chains (KMC?) can add speed.

Interesting that Starbike lists the Fiber-Lyte 36t/110bcd, and the 50t and 53t, but no 52.
Fiber-Lyte is well known for custom pieces, surely they could make a 52 for you.
