16 lbs out of the box, Not sure what it is now but the carbon toupe saddle and American Classic wheels should drop it a bit.
It also has Keo blades and carbon cages. I had a TCR that I loved but a bulging disk forced a comfier option.
I've just purchased some Giant Contact SLR bars which will shed 90 grams and I'm tempted to get some planet x calipers.
I've had them before on older bikes and was never blown away, They're so light though and they do work.
Any suggestions on simple weight loss? Also should I de-sticker the wheels?
Sorry about the bad picture, I've done quite a few miles on it since this shot.

I use a Planet X breaks calipers and don't have any problem with him. What is your weight?

I have light skewers, Tubes, Dura ace cassette.
The rest I need, Thanks for the help.
Where would I get a tuning kit for sram force? Only the chainset is red.

1 1/4 steerer so not sure i could get a light expander or top cap, I manager to get carbon spacers in that size from ebay.
I'll probably upgrade to the giant carbon stem as I can't find an alternative in that size.
