I have a wife and 2 kids (Ages 5 and 2) along with a mediocre job/salary, so I dont have a crap ton of money to throw into my bike. EVERYTHING I buy for my bike is from what I can buy and flip for a profit, Christmas or birthday money I get. I'm always on the lookout for a deal and am usually able to upgrade pieces by selling my replaced piece for a decent profit, which makes the total cost of the new item not so bad. I still have some work to do, but I like the results so far.
EDITED: Now at 14.79lbs (Goal reached!)
With new Enve wheels:15.2lbs. BUT bike feels SOOO much better with the wheels. I'll gladly take the added weight.
superlogic bars (190g)
c260 wet black stem (103g)
WCS carbon UD zero offset/Cut...(180g)
kcnc Ti skewers (42g)
Aerozine seatpost clamp (9g)
Aerozine chainring bolts (2g/each)
Aerozine ti cage bolts (1g/bolt)
Praxis 52/36 chainring
C'Dale SL Hollowgram crankset
Exustar pro carbon Ti pedals (176g+70g = 246g)
Planet X CNC brakes (193g)
New CDale expander (13g)
Fizik gloss black bar tape (Cut 6 inches off each side, total 57g)
ENVE 45 carbon clinchers
Chinese carbon cages (19g/each)
Love the bike!

Love the bike!
Praxis shift much smoother and more precise.
I just bought some koolstop brake pads yesterday. I'll be looking into the PlanetX calipers. What do you guys think about TRP brakes compared to KCNC or planetX? I have ultegra brake calipers now and even though i want to lose some weight, I really dont want to compromise braking power.
thanks for all the compliments!

Are the trp 979 caliper the best to choose from amongst the TPR? I know NOTHING about TRP, so if anyone can give some insight (I will also try to do some research) that would be great.
Edit: sweet jeebus, just saw the price for the 979...no can do
Probably would look at the 920.
Just saw this review on FW.com

I like the option of the C7 calipers. Just not sure if they will stop as good as my ultegra even if I outfit the C7's with better pads. Thoughts?
Not sure if it's worth the weight savings yet. I'm using Yokozuna reaction cables now and the stopping power is great.
