Well my bike is starting to get built this weekend and will finish it in another couple of weeks when the cables arrive. I am guessing my weight will be just over 7kg with the crappy rims and around 6.5->6.6kg with the good rims when they arrive in 2 months. I still cant believe my CT2 rings weighed 25 grams more than the standard SRAM Force ones, are yours 11 speed compatible or just the 10 speed.

I didn't know they came in 10 or 11 speed?

The CT2 rings I got have 11 / 10 speed compatible stamped on them, maybe being new they are heavier :(

103 grams @ 50t / 36 grams @ 34t

Do the Stan's road wheels hold up well? I've had amazing luck with their mountain stuff but no experience with the road rims.

Added the Stans wheels, lovely ride! Plenty stiff enough at my weight and roll nice.

Current weight 6.562kg

I removed the carbon jockey wheels and derailleur back plate as they were making a lot of noise, think it may have been because I didn't loctite the bolts and they were working loose?

Also snapped the carbon LesAlpe front derailleur hanger, will be contacting carbornfreaks about that one to get a replacement hopefully.

Both of these added some weight so putting them back on (once replaced) should get me close to 6.5kg, once I've achieved that I think I'll be happy!

Very Nice! I have the 2009 5.5. As far as the derailleur clamp, I use a 34.9 Parlee FD clamp. great looking and light.
