I think that is everything ! Anyway she is coming in at 8.9kilo 19.62 pounds
I appreciate this is fairly light but ideally would like to get it down below 8.5kg - So I was thinking of changing the following;
- Rocket rons? Slightly lighter than the ralphs?
-I Guess XX1 maybe ? as you would lose one shifter and a front mech so would save 250 gram?? Maybe more..
Any other suggestions guys? without going silly for example AX lightness wheels ? Shmolke bars etc..
Throw in a Shiftup cartridge and shave another ~120g.
KCNC Ti Cassette would save around 100g.
Other than that, the only things I can think of would be to swap to a Schmolke bar/post with an Extralite stem. Extralite hubs would shave a tad. If you're really set on hitting 8.5kg, I'd go to a 1x10 or 1x11.
Gripshifts will save you about 100g, the 10 speed ones are about 100g the pair from memory.
I guess the obvious is that a carbon frame will save you pushing 0.5Kg, depending on the weight of that Ti.
My Ron's are just 15g lighter than my Ralphs, better to select tyres for usage (grip/rolling resistance) than weight with that little saving!

I am tempted by the Race Face Next SL crank and a nice KCNC 11 - 36 Ti cassette and loosing the front mech and shifter.. that is going to save me around 400 gram so will get me to the target of 8.5kg. !
You're right about the 1x11.
The only thing is... when are you willing to give up performance for weight? And what is "light enough".
