ask Jure Berk if he will build you a seatpost/saddle combo. that will save a chunk of weight.



Got one of those it's pretty special!

That's a 400g ish post and saddle you got there my Berk rated for my 85kgs is 147g
Extralite head set is expensive and a little fragile and the weight drop is more like 35gs ( not worth it )
If you have the evne expander and cap it's a 55g set up vers 11g for the extralite setup

New forks are not going to net much and will cost a boat load

Extralite stem is good stuff and a 40g drop

Cranks will make this work for you though... THM m3s will drop 150-200g on this setup and with the right rings will take the shifting up a level or 10!

How about a detailed parts list
Then the guess work can be laid to rest :thumbup:

It's a pretty looking bike either way :mrgreen:

Personally, I wouldn't change a thing
(except, perhaps the crank; to a THM where you get the most dramatic savings)

Other than that, just enjoy. :thumbup:

get yourself a zipp vumaquad crankset. this weighs 565g in total. tuning the rest is crap, to be honest...

I know this is WW and all but this bike is currently 5.44kg's - thats light! What are you going to gain from losing the extra weight? Have you got bored of the current build?

Oh, and I'm surprised no one had mentioned to change your pedals.

The bike isn't 5.44kg yet. It's 6.33kg. Clearly a heavy bike.

Guys really appreciate your comments and suggestions,but I think some of you were concern on safety than lightness,Im leaning to safety though,so before doing some modefications,I was just wondering if there's any existing Titanuim bike that went lower than 13lbs,I guess it will be a big factor on my decision,,,Ive seen one carbon s-works weights 13.1 pounds = 5.94206005 kilograms without pedal and cages though.. :?:

First of all, let me a say fine example of the gray metal you have there.

Sub 13 ti? Yep. I'll PM you later a current build list since its now 12.5 lbs. I don't want to off topic your thread. :thumbup:

viewtopic.php?f=10&t=38728&hilit=Lynskey+R320

PS pedals and cages are part of the weight.
