You missed:
- fork - A curve 700c fork is 380g uncut and aud$429.
- Frame hardware
- seatpost clamp - price/weight
- headset price/weight
- You will also need the GXP groupset (it's a BSA bb) - which is ~1845g not 1740 - or more depending on cassette

Looks like they used to do a $2999 package with the fork and frame bits you already added. Email them to see if they still do it.
I'd expect your target weight to be closer to 7.5kg

I've got a Grovel 4130 V1. It's nice.

Ahh thanks. I was really hoping for under 6.8 :(
The fork is included in the price and I just assumed the weight was but I am probably wrong.
The seatpost clamp and headset are included in the price but the weight probably isn't.
Also I had no idea about the bottom bracket so thanks.
Thanks for your help. Really bummed out that it won't be under 6.8

Did you check with them?
The price at the top of the page is frame only - if it includes the fork/hardware the option usually says "Frame + Fork"

You could *probably* get it close to 6.8, but you'll have to be a lot more picky with your parts selection - eg, 3T isn't the lightest, put 25mm tyres on instead of 28s, etc.
Also, I don't think that wheelset weight includes skewer weight and the groupset weight does not include cables weights.

Wow, it's so much harder to get to the weight limit than i thought. What bar, stem, seatpost brand would you reccomend?

I was having a better look on their website. $2999 for the frameset.
It also says frame and fork specs: 1390g which I am assuming is for both

Given that the fork is 380g uncut, it seems pretty unlikely that the frame is 1010g.

There are a few build reviews floating around the net - a 8.8kg 6800 build and an 8.3kg chorus XL build or something. (Edit nevermind these are discs)

I like ritchey bits. Would probably only drop 100g from your 3T bits though.

Including a 380g uncut fork makes the total 6778g plus headset, seatpost clamp, cables, quick releases.

headset is an external cup thingy - 150g?
Seatpost clamp - 20g?
cables and outers - 50g?
QRs - 50g each?



Actually - just found a <6.8kg belgie

Looks like an SR build, enve post and sub-1400g wheels.
