This is my 2nd road bike after a 2nd hand Giant OCR that I bought to see if road cycling was for me. Ive had it coming up for 2 years and have decided its time to try and lighten it.
I changed the crank straight away from an FSA gossamer to an FSA SL-K and the wheels to Mavic Ksyrium SL. Ive ridden it like this since. I dont have the original weight but with the original DT swiss R1900 wheels and Conti Ultra Sport tyres it was 8.58Kg. With the mavics, Schwalbe Ultremo DD tyres, 2 bottle cages and garmin mount and sensor its 8.0Kg. Im hoping to try and get down below 7kg hopefully.
The bike as I ride it just now:
Bits to upgrade:
ControlTech scored 99 stem(name is a bit misleading on the weight)
ControlTech carbon bars(203g)
Rose Carbon seatpost
Selle italia SLR TT
Ive also got Lizard skins DSp, planet x skewers, Vittoria Diamante Pro light tyres and michelin supersonic tubes to be fitted.
I hope to get a spreadsheet made up so I can see the weight savings when I get everything on the bike.
All comments welcome.
