Well I just finished my first real bike. Would like your opinion on doing some upgrades. I tried building the best bike I could for the $$$ I had. This is it:

Litespeed Tuscany, new frame, :roll: 2002 (59)
Lite tec fork
Dura Ace Groupo
FSa Carbon Crank
Carbon Seat post (200 grams)
Stem ( not sure of the maker, I glass beaded the paint off to give it a glossy aluminum look) 137 grams

Cane Creek Arrowhead wheels w/ titanium spokes

Total weight >>> 17.6lbs (without pedals)
Price>>>> under $2,000.00

I tried to do as much research as possible. Any information or ideas to reduce the weight further would be appreciated. Thanks :roll:
