sorry if this has been asked before.. but i'm currently running Red 10 speed groupo. question is will there be any weight savings if i went to eTap?

current setup:
Red 10 speed shifter, Red FD, Red Wifli RD, Sram 11/32 cassette

Red eTap 11sp shifter, FD, Wifli RD, Sram 1170 - 11/32 cassette

i'm thinking it will add more weight to my addict vs. less due to batteries, etc... or would it be breakeven?

eTap is going to be heavier, not sure by how much but even without cables the heavier derailleurs w/batteries and 11spd cassette will add some heft

Well you could always get a Red cassette and drop some weight from other parts to make up for it :D

My bike gained ~100g by moving from SRAM Red 10spd to eTap (shifters, both ders, both batts less Aican brake cables and Yokozuna shift cables). I found eTap's published weights to be on-target.
