Question for the experts:
I have a 2011 Giant TCX frame with Sram Force on it. I've raced it for two seasons and I'm at a point where I either want to reduce the weight of the bike or upgrade the frame.
Would upgrading the stock carbon/alu steerer fork to an Enve unit (rated at 450 gr) reduce the weight much? I am unsure what the stock fork weighs. Anyone know?
Beyond that I have a Pro Vibe 7S bars and stem, and the Giant 30.9 SLR carbon setpost. So I may shave 110 gr or so there by upgrading to all Enve components.
My current wheel set is DT Swiss 240 hubs and Hed C2 rims.
I'm pressed as I don't see a lot of room for reduction in my current set-up—single ring front, no fd, no cages etc—unless the fork yields big savings and I possibly upgrade to all SRAM RED and throw on some insanely expensive tubulars. Perhaps at that point it would be smarter and more cost effective to buy a new bike and use the TCX as my 'B' bike?
