Pro edge carbon seat 96grms
Token seatpost 96 grms
Zoom seatpost clamp tie bolt 9grms
Planet x brakes 200grms I tuned some KCNC break pad holders ,Cut the triangle bit off and sanded them flat so the brakes in total should weigh less then 200grms . All the bolts are ti including brake pad holders.
Handbuilt Wheels . clinchers built by Jon at Just Riding Along 1182 grms pair . 18 f,/ 24 r AC hubs , Stans rims. The front rim is the old Stans rim , The rear is the new rim which is a bit stronger . which makes sense for the rear .
Cranks ,Stronglight Helion sanded down with KCNC chain bolt rings 640grms including BB
53T/39T . I suspect they me be a few grams lighter.
Cassette Sram red black . 11/26 . I like the red mech its easier to clean than a Recon etc etc.
Ybn gold chain 237grms , weighs less as we took off a few links .
ZX tyres and michelin pro light tubes .
Look Keo carbon pedals .[ not the blades]
Tune Skyline skewers 17grms
Tune Skyline bottle cage 4grms , which works really well .
I put 2 plastic screws in the other cage holes.
Nokon cables .KCNC inner cables .
Carbon plug ends 5grms pair.
Bar tape is taxidermy tape that I spotted online . Its very matte looking and light
The frame may well be a bit lighter as I took over 200grms worth of paint off. It took about 3 hours in total to strip the paint off using a Stanley knife. It came off quite easy .
I like the forks as they are shiny , If they get scratched then I will sand them down .
Most of the parts I took off my Awesome Guru Photon , Hello to Sean at Guru . I will be building the Guru back up ..
The Trek is my so called spare bike . I love riding it, it's a lot of fun. I have been quite conservative with the weights as my scales are not that good and now have been trashed.
I just use baby wipes to clean everything , Aero 303 on all the carbon stuff.
I put some paint on my fingers and used there marks to drill the holes on the shifters so my fingers feel comfy , that's why the holes are drilled that way . The seat has some flex thats why it's a bit nose up.
A big shout to Tony at Bike and Run. Finchley, London for his mechanical skills and help . Hes the man.
Im Looking forward to getting my Guru Photon back together and making it more awesome
The Guru is the best bike I have ever rode . My trek though is pretty good as well .
Peace and love
What's the overall weight on the scales?
I always liked the shape of the old horizontal top tube Trek frames.
One thing I don't like here is the wheels. Would be surprised, and impressed, if I couldn't kick the crap out of those with Stans and AC hubs.
How does it ride vs. the Guru?
Slightly disappointed there is no USPS paint? Assume that's in the light of recent events.
Stiff, Light, Aero - Pick Three!!
- R-Sys wheels will spontaneously explode
- The ZG crankset will never, ever exist
- Everyone needs Lightweights, even if they're fat and old
- Parts actually made of metal are SO 10 years ago

That I'm obviously a lot more flexable than you . Thats a very comfy position for me .
Check out some of the drops of Ryder , Schleck's etc etc they have the same kind of drop ,very aero .
I suppose you think having a tower of spacers and a saddle lower then your handle bars is cool
That's immediately what come to mind as soon as I saw the bike. I slam my stem, but I could never get into that position.artray wrote: Thats a very comfy position for me. Check out some of the drops of Ryder
But we still need them pics.

Ah, and you copied the position of the handlebar and the grips from Sean Yates, right? Now all we have to figure out is which pro rider has a tilted saddle
