I have been looking at the forum now for a few months, and have finally got around to registering to the site. I’m a Helicopter structural design engineer so have a slight interest in this kind of stuff. I’m not 100% weight weenie but obviously understand the benefits for having a light weight bike although there is most probably more weight to be lost on me!
I haven't been riding that long, originally purchased a Planet X SL pro carbon (sram red) with the intention to upgrade the frame as and when I get into riding more. Only a few months later I’m totally hooked and decided that this time of year is ideal to buy a new frame. So treated myself to an early Christmas present a few weeks ago a Cervelo R3 and ended up buying a set of wheels as well mavic ksyrium yksion limited edition 10th anniversary wheels due to the deal that was sold to me was so tempting.
I have taken all of the sram red components off the Planet X and rebuild using a 2nd hand tiagra group set (using this for commuting, winter training and turbo session). I’ve also cleaned up all of the sram bits and ordered a few new parts for the Cervelo.
Frame (With pretty much everything attached) - 926g
Forks (un-cut) - 384g
Seat post 3T Dorico Team - 234g
Bar 3T Ergosum Team - 210g
BB Rotor Press fit BBright - 109g
SRAM Read Shifters - 298g
SRAM Red Rear Derailleur - 146g
SRAM Red Front Derailleur - 70g
Brakes Ultra Light CNC (Including Pads) - 199g
Headset Cane Creek (supplied with frame - 63g
Rear Cassette SRAM 10 PG-1070 - 238g
Wheels Mavic Ksyrium Yksion - 2220g Tyres, tubes fully inflated (sorry no picture)
Picture of the frame with wheels
The following parts are still required
* Rotor 3D+ BBright crank
* 3T Arx Team Stem
* Also will be getting the SRAM red rear cassette (nearly 100g lighter the the one I have)
* SRAM 1090R Chain
I will hopefully be getting the bike built later this month. Finished weight should be around 6.5kg.
