Post and saddle could lose 100g tuned speed plays would net you 40g more and every one needs at least 1 900g wheel set ;)

Yes the seatpost and saddle would be the primary target. Would probably go berk if i were to try and drop some weight, which would, as you rightly point out drop 100g or more.
A set of claviculas would also be up for consideration.

Not a speedplay guy, so the keo blades are there to stay.

I like the ease of clinchers which seriously impairs my light wheel options. Some obermayer golds would go well with the gold accents though......

Berks are pretty ace! Claviculas are a very expensive way to save a gram or over the SLs
Maybe the new versions would be monies better well spent and prolly more grams saved

It's a nice looking bike any ways.. Bet it's pretty sweet ride

Few updates - Evo, changed the SI SL left hand crank for a SI stages crank arm, fiddled with the cabling, now have KCNC Ti cables for both brakes and both shifters. Have dropped the stack at the from and switched out the carbon spacer for a slam that stem + POP spacers. Total weight 5.63kg

Stages was 170g in 172.5, compared to SI SL in 172.5 at 143, i have removed the ugly blue stages decal with acetone.

Here are a few more picturesque photos of the tarmac before a few updates.

This is the tabletop between Beechmont and Binna Burra in the Gold Coast hinterland.

Solid Tarmac build. Would you be able to shave some grams if you replaced the white Specialized headset spacer with something more weenie?

@ FC, almost certainly yes, but I think the white spacer looks prettier than a weenie skinny spacer. I will accept the weight penalty (whispered as on weight weenies)
