I just came across an example of a non weight weenie similarly spec'd bike.
It comes in at 7.09kg so over 500g heavier.

Any idea what those bottle cages are?

Looks like Supacaz Carbon Fly in Neon Yellow.
Thanks bro!

Up to 6.59kg with a new Farsports F1S Handlebar.
I tried a new way of routing the cables.

I managed to get the seatpost clamp from the 2022 R5.
It fits perfectly and its a much cleaner design compared to the one that came on the bike. ImageImageImageImage
would you mind sharing the part number? My LBS seems unable to find it .. thanks!

EDIT: Nevermind, got it. The the part number seems to be SPC-0H0R5.

After 3 good years with this bike and 22k miles I'm moving to a Specialized Tarmac SL8.
I'm going to be using all the same components aside from a new lighter handlebar.
I'll be getting the bike back from the shop tomorrow. We'll see if it weighs more or less. (New frame is 782g and uncut fork is 363g)
The R5 is going to be for sale with the Light Bicycle wheels (total weight 6.58kg)

For the Farsports Integrated Bar users, how did you install the bar? Did you just directly install it because i think there's a void there that requires a shim should you install it unless you have made a custom shim for it? Because I'm also planning to have on installed on R5. Thanks!

I had the older model of the R5 with a regular round steer tube. I'm not sure how it works on the D shaped fork.

Picked up the R5 this week, weighing in at 6.56kg with pedals, Garmin mount and bottle cages. I still have a couple of upgrades to come that will hopefully get it down to 6.4kgs or below. I’m pretty happy with the weight for a semi Ultegra set up.

First shake down ride today and it felt pretty good.

A Darimo seatpost will save you a bunch of weight although they have a long wait.
Also if you haven't yet, you can replace your speedplay parts with Ti to save some more weight.

Thanks, i had been considering the Darimo seat post, based on rough calculations it should save around 100g. Do you have any experience with them? I saw wait times were around 3 months?

Regarding the Speedplay pedals they’re at 170g for the pair which is lighter than the new Titanium Wahoo variant. Not sure I’ll get much more weight savings?
