Planning some updates to bring the weight down a bit...

Brakes: Ciamillo GSL (-120g)
Saddle: Selle San Marco Regale Carbon FX Racing Team (-95g)
Skewers: KCNC Ti (-20g)
Bottle cages: Tacx Tao Carbon x2 (-26g)
Cassette: Super Record (-57g, need a second cassette anyway)
Fork: Colnago Star (-130g but hard to find, please offer if you want to sell... Or maybe custom painted ENVE 2.0 with 43mm offset to save 210 grams?)
Expander: Tune Gum Gum (-20g)

Total ~450 grams less, so bike weight would be about 7400 grams even with pedals and bottle cages.

But I'm thinking if it's worth it, especially with the saddle and brakes, because looks are important to me besides weight and I like how the bike looks now...

Opinions and suggestions, please? :noidea:

Some weights have been measured by myself, some from various sources around the web...

From the above I would only suggest replacing skewers, cassette, expander and bottle cages.
Leave else as it is.

eurperg, I think your bike would look even better with tan sidewalled tubs :thumbup:

Eurperg,

thats a great looking bike, hence i would opt for changing things conservatively. brakes, i would go for a pair of campy black, probably record, or even chorus 2011, which are lighter, the '10 were kind of beefy. The bottle cages, yes, the skewers, yes.
the fork, only for a star colnago, check totalcycling.com http://www.totalcycling.com/index.php/p ... _STAR.html

Congrats on such a bike,

Willy

Thanks for your comments!

The worst upgrade fever already went away as I decided to upgrade my full sus 26er and 29er SS instead... Maybe they will be WW worthy someday. ;)
Maybe I will join the tan sidewall craze after I have checked out in Photoshop how they will look... That's the way I plan my upgrades :lol:

Steel is real but titanium is forever... And carbon is... ???? :roll: :D
And now it's time for an another pint of Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier...

Absolute perfection with a classic touch. Don't go Ciamillo, the Chorus brakes look good!

tan side walls would give a little more contrast on the whole wheels and a very classic "look". go for it, so Damjian has something to cry about :mrgreen:
