Sup y'all, I've started collecting parts for my new winter project. Aiming at a fairly light weight. Current projected weight is just under 18 lbs. without cables/housing and bar tape weight.

I have the cassette, chain, and saddle already. Staying SRAM 1x11 with hydraulic disc brakes. Going tubeless. Wheels are already pretty light but I actually need a 12x100 front hub so I might go with something other than the Tune hub unless I can get a different fork.

Here's a snapshot of the build spreadsheet.

I'm open to suggestions for other ways to save weight without sacrificing too much strength. I weigh 185 lbs and carry a single water bottle usually.

I should add, most of these weights are claimed weights only, so there's a margin of error of course.

No obvious places to lose much weight on your list that don’t cost a fortune. Should be a nice build, get some pics up when it’s done
