Hi everyone. Just wanting everyone's expertise on how to make my 2015 Ridley Noah SL lighter. Currently, it weighs 7.3kg and I'm wanting to hit 7kg. Here is the set up as follows:

Frame (small): 1100g (advertised as 950g for a medium, ha)
Fork: 400g
Proprietary seat post: weight unknown

Wheels: Fulcrum racing zero nite
Tyres: Veloflex corsa 25mm
Tubes: Continental tube race
Groupset: DA 9000 11-28, 53-39
Pedals: Speedplay chrome
Saddle: Fizik Antares with carbon rails
Stem: 3T team stealth 120mm
Bars: 3T team ergosum

Your suggestions are appreciated!

Bit spendy though.

Without spending crazy money, I would do the following:

-tune skewers (30 - 40 gr)
-TI axles for your speedplays. Can be a little hard to find third party ones, but lots have had luck, me incl.
-Michelin Ultralite innertubes (75 gr each)
-Deda bartape (35gr all in)
-Extralite expander + light topcap and Ti screw (10 - 15gr total)
-Cut seatpost to lenght
-Do your fulcrum wheels already have the new (white?) alloy Shimano body? If not, you can loose 30 - 40 gr with the new Fulcrum body for Shimano.

All the above (not counting the body) would save you arond 150 - 200 gr.

And post a pic of your ride, those Noah SL bikes are very nice looking!

Cool, thanks for the tips! Just wondering what does "tune skewers" mean? Do you mean the Shimano free hub? Mine are black not white :(

They certainly are nice to look at! Here is mine. Enjoy! 8)

Skewers usually a good gram/$ deal. Tune, or planet x will save some weight.

Your contact points could be lightened, but comfort becomes an issue for those parts. There are plenty of lighter saddles to choose from, kalloy stem would save some weight, titanium parts on the speedplays help.

Ti/aluminum bolts won't save a ton, but I think they're kind of fun. Aluminum recessed brake nuts, and rear derailleur pivot bolt are probably the biggest weight savers if yours are steel. Aluminum headset cap bolt, ti stem bolts. Last but not least, tubulars.

For exemple, these quick releases (skewers) from tune https://www.bike24.com/1.php?content=8;product=4465;menu=1000,4,171;mid%5B109%5D=1

The alloy body I mean is this one. Don't have the part n° by hand, bit it has been mentionned over here a couple of times already:
