In Australia, the 2018 TCR Advanced Pro 1 with Ultegra in Large weighs 7.45kg stock, without pedals or bottle cage, but with a bell, and reflectors on both wheels, and front and back (required by law).
Advanced Pro 0 with Dura Ace and slightly better wheels weighs 7.0kg, without pedals or bottle cage, but with reflectors and bell.

Those carbon wheels are amazing.

I saw the weight of the fork on a post here on weightweenies and recall thinking that it was pretty light for a fork with an alloy steerer. It's definitely not >550 grams. I'll try find the post.

edit: I don't think this is the one where I originally saw the weight, but it is listed here (viewtopic.php?f=10&t=146903) as 470 grams. It looks like there is still a fair amount of steerer still on it too.

Thank you for the link saying hybrid fork is 70 gr heavier. Actually the points that I care on a bike are Rigidity, responsiveness, beauty, quality, the most importantly sizing and geometry, I sold my old bike being ideal in size only because of this reason. I am not definitely a weightweenie (it is ok to race with 2 kg wheelset :) Now you can hang me. :lol:
Btw I m looking forward to meet my new Tcr Advanced frame set. I will post its specifications here

Update: I have finally handed on my Tcr Advanced 2017 frameset. Weight of the parts is below:
I am surprised that frame is lighter than I thought.
Small size frame (without anything, only including front mech and rear mech hangers and all inner cable route exit blocks: 867 gr)
Hybrid OD Fork: 475 gr (with only star nut being inside the shaft)
Headset (including spacers, caps, screw, bearings): 98 gr
Seatpost (will come):...

If u one day got bored of it u could just swap the fork with this:

Van Nicholas VNT SLR Full Carbon fork. It's the same rake.

The Giant uses 1 1/4" steerer, is there a headset that allows a 1 1/8 fork to work?

This is the advanced model having hybrid Overdrive fork. It uses standard diameter. However, in pro model, it is like you said
