Comes up to a respectable 6.88kg inclusive of bike lights, cages and Topeak pump, however I've been intending to go full out WW on this bike. Dream is to get it below 6kg, but without spending a lot I'm not really sure where to go from here...
Random WW ideas:
Quite a bit of weight to save out of the Force and Rival components, but feels a shame to upgrade only after a year's use though.
An Extralite Stem? Have been thinking about going shorter to 100mm anyway cos my 110mm seems a bit of a stretch and I find myself riding a lot on the tops. Stock steerer bolt/expander (it's 66g!) maybe swapped out for Extralite ones as well. Stock clamp is creaking so out it goes.
Really keen on keeping some form of MTB pedals on though because I find myself walking pretty frequently on rides, and my Mavic MTB shoes feel superb when walking about. I even opt to carry my bike up and down flights of steps instead of going along long ramps. Extra weight training/Perks of having a light bike ey?
And for bling factor I was thinking of getting anodized orange caps/spacers/bolts to add to the orange highlights
