hey everyone,

i recently picked up a Lapierre Xelius SL 500. the frame supposedly weighs 850 and the fork 350, but i have read on here and elsewhere that that is a bit of wishful thinking... either way, i like the look of the bike, the geometry is right, and it has good reviews so i decided to just go for it, even if it is not true "weight weenie." we will see what i can do.

as pictured it weighs 8.39kg, without bartape, pedals or bottle cages.

i want to try and get it to 6.5kg... i will use some parts i have laying around and probably splash out for a few new things... unfortunately the frame and fork are pretty beefy to start with, but, so it goes.

weights and pictures to follow.

ok so everything is stripped down, except the bottom bracket. i will probably have my LBS do that because i don't like pounding on my frame. but, as you can see, the frame and fork are HEAVY, but i have a lot of room to chop some weight considering how much some of those components weighed... a few questions:

does anyone know which headset bearings i could use that would be lighter? the original is: FSA 1 1/8" - 1 1/4" FSA Orbit C-33 44E

what headset spacer could i use over the top headset bearing and wedge thing to shave a bit more?
