Could you write a list of your parts used? I have the same frame, and would like to make a sub 6.35kg bike. Your list would help me pick an choose what I will end up using. Thanks.

Original photo does NOT have SRAM tape.
SRAM plugs...
It's Lizard Skins tape.

I am not a true weight weenie( I don't know what the hell I'm doing here), but I did just buy a 56cm g5 frame and built it up with the new SRAM Red and Reynolds Attack clincher wheels. Mine weighs in at 14.6 lbs with water bottle cages, pedals, and bike computer. Not an expensive build($4,300) for this weight bike. This frame is stiff in all the right places but not harsh to ride and I am damn pleased as it is 3 lbs lighter than my old tank. I got the frame for $1600 with shipping and tax and after riding it the last 4 days couldn't be happier with my purchase. I am 82kg and This frame is certainly stiff in all the right places but soaks up harsh roads better than any bike I've been on. I live in the Lake Tahoe/Sierra Nevada foothills and this thing climb likes a mountain goat. My first time out I shaved almost 2 minutes off a 15 minute climb that I've done 200 times over the last couple of years. I can't wait to try it up one of the 2,500+ foot vertical climbs around here. I'm also looking forward to taking it down to Mount Diablo and climbing it in under 1 hour- 10.8 miles, 3249 vertical feet. I may have a slight edge on a couple of my cycling buddies ;-)

You obviously dont like much setback on your saddle. Seems very far forward?


Frame is probably wrong size for him

Indeed, I am very interested in how someone could manage to bring a G5 down to 6,1 kilo as the thread starter has done.
My BH G5 weighs in at roughly 7,6 kilo. By switching the saddle, skewers, cassette and handlebars, I am expecting to be at 7,3... at best.
I am running SRAM Rival. Is SRAM RED the solution? That is too expensive for me.

I have not left any stone unturned in my hunt for weight loss: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1376 ... L1hM/edit#
"Potentiellt byte" column is what I am considering switching to, "Vikt" is the objects current weight and "Namn" is the current object. "Viktvinst" is the amount of weight that I will lose by changing to the specific object.
