With shorter stack headset, stem & carbon top cap, she went from 7470g to 7390g = 80g loss
(16.44lbs ---> 16.31lbs). I'm expecting to lose 44g (confirmed on the scale) with the tubes and
about 130g with the tires early next week for a another 174g drop along with a very reliable 65g
drop with the saddle and 41g with the chain. So, once all is said and done, I should be at about
7110g 15.69-15.82lbs (because the tires are not a confirmed number...hopefully, they'll be 150g,
but they may come in at 160g).
With that, I'm starting to hate my bike. Last week, after I had the fork cut and the lower stack
height headset upper section installed, I still got 7460g on the scale. I was pissed & disappointed.
But, lesson kids...don't use the lanyard loop to weigh your bike. Clamp it into the stand. I know for a
fact that I didn't get an 80g drop with just the stem (the Bonty stem weighed in at 166g after I took it off).
The 7390g weight has to be a corrected weight with the more stable fastening of the scale and more in line
with what I was expecting (actually, a lot better than what I expected) so I'm going to attribute about 40g of
the recent loss to the cut fork, headset upper and carbon top cap.
The Edge came with silver bolts. I chose to use the black bolts from the Bonty.
IMO, a much nicer stealth look. Also, I had to go with a 120mm/6 degree stem.
I couldn't for the life of me locate a 110mm pinline logo Edge stem.
Won't post full pics until the entire bike is done (maybe 2 more weeks),
but here are some teaser shots...
Some fresh goodies.
