it's very easy to lose weight on the brake calipers, look at fairwheel bikes for lots of options on feather weight stuff that is compatible with any bodies levers

1kg is a lot, but skewers, cranks, pedals and brakes will be a good start.

if you're keeping to a budget, maybe just run some token/planetx/generic cnc stuff. it's light and you don't really need brakes in a criterium.

keep an eye out or hit up ebay for some shifters and a rear derailleur and you're about as close as you'll get.
