So, lets start with the new Tarmac Sworks Disc frame. lets assume it's going to be 750g. Assuming money is not as much of an issue, how can we build this up as light as possible? I'm going to assume Sram Etap, but that's as far as my expertise goes. Thoughts? Mechanical disc brakes?

don't use mechanical disc brakes
the weight gain is not worth it

I really doubt the SL6 disc will be under 750 gr ,
even the rim brake frame is quite a bit heavier than announced , except in no paint stealth version

you buy disc brakes cause they are good, mechanical db not so much

The SL6 has a specific seat post , so you can reduce weight maybe with some light hardware for the seat post .
Take light and stiff stem and handlebar

Carbon wheels with flat spokes like cx ray , 6 bolts rotor are lighter , but the best rotor dura aces are only available in center lock , so light center lock hub
Tubular if you want the lighter , Tubeless or good clinchers with latex inner tubs for rolling resistance and comfort .

Light 30 mm crank , the new s works ? Or hollowgram

Carbon saddle

I think that's it ....

It's not going to be 750g. Since people's 56cm Ultralights are coming in at a >780g (and not the 733g claimed,) we can assume that the Ultralight Disc frame will be in the 810-830 range.

A high-end SL6 Disc Ultralight with something like a Berk saddle, shallow clinchers, eTap HRD, all carbon everything, light pedals, etc. could probably get down to 6.6kg before going with really exotic components.

Lightweight thru-axles are an easy way to lose about 100g or so.
