Did you get a weight with paint?

I have a TCR 2 that needs to lose some weight. Frameset is 1454g with bb and fork is 560g.

Nicely done. I do love how bare AL frame looks.

Yeah, also have the stealthy one that I'm in the process of rebuilding w Ultegra and a Rotor 3D+ chainset. Mine is ML, kinda wish I had a M. Thinking of swapping in an Isaac fork I have from a broken frame. It's a lot beefier looking but much lighter. I actually love the look of the slim one tho.

I tried a ML but it really pitched me forward over the front and seatpost extension was ridiculous!

TCRs seem to jump between sizes significantly.

Mine is actually also in winter training mode right now with aluminum wheels and fenders. I'll get some pictures up of it next time I get a chance.

These are the MashSF Zeiss top cap and spacer kit.
I stopped using the KCNC brakes because they were not wide enough for my wheels with new brake pads. They unevenly wore the brake pads and I had to run them as open as possible to make them fit. They were pretty light but were very flexy and did not have good brake feel, even compared to other lightweight brakes I've used.

What did you do for the forest green finishes on the shifters? Just tape?

Just some green electrical tape. My other wheels have green Vittoria Paves on them and the red accents don't really look good together.

Vittoria also offered the Pavés in black instead of green (clinchers).

This is how it has been set up for the last couple months as my primary rain/training bike.
Chris king r45 laced to Hed Belgium C2
Vittoria Pave Clinchers 27mm
Sram 1051 Chain and 1050 Cassette
Weight: 7.5kg without fenders
Definitely not a light set up but I’m not too worried about it for training and bad weather.

This thread is always my inspiration.
TCR SLR 2014 is my first build road bike, still not light as your, due to my groupset and wheelset.
Currently weigh still above 8kg, but im happy see this frame build can be light under 7kg
