Thanks Maverick. I don't know why I overlooked those before. Perhaps I thought they were a bit outdated, but you're the 2nd person to say that the AC14s are functionally sound. They also keep in line with the look I'm going for as they are similar to the POPs. You probably considered that. I will use the POPs for weigh-ins, and the Tunes for fight day.
Cerro, those skewers are amazing!!
El rey, I like the 3T Black bars more, now that they got rid of the white clamp area. However, I made up my mind on the Deda Superleggero stem. I've been waiting for a stem with no logo on the face plate for a long time. I'm also being weight conscious with this build, so the 240g+ seatpost is a no can do. The unpopular Edge post weighs 189g at 400mm length. I can cut about 120mm off that seatpost, so the weight should drop to about 160g. I'm going to try out the Deda Superzero.
