I finally built my stealth bike. Here is the part list;
Before built; (Handlebars updated to Easton EC90SLX3 after that photo)
Weight includes bottle cages, pedals, Garmin mount and speed/cadence sensor. Does not include Garmin or AssSaver shown on the photo.
Places I can shave some weight are;
Lighter tires (around 50 grams of saving with Veloflex Corsa's), Done That
Lighter handlebar tape,
Removing one bottle cage,
Weighting without inner tubes. (Yes. You! We all know you did that )
I am open for any other recommendations for weight savings
Other WW Details;
Campagnolo Chorus 2015 Groupset Weights;
Shifters- 381 (w/ shift cables)
Cassette- 278 (12-27)
Crank- 711 (175mm, 52-36)
BB- 48 (BSA English)
Brakes- 304 (New Chorus brakes)
Chain- 252 (I forgot to weight it. Its competitive cyclists data)
40mm carbon clinchers from Rae. 27mm wide.
Sapim cx-ray spokes
Novatec A291 - F582SL hubs
1500 grams dead with veloplugs.
Hope you like it
Please ask if you have any questions
How much do the veloplugs add? I have 50x25mm ones and they are 1480 g.
So sad you couldn't reach the UCI limit.

but surprised about the crankset weight..
see: alloy athena: http://gewichte.rennrad-news.de/product ... lu-schwarz

is there any reason why the new 2015 cranks are actually heavierthan previous modelz?
Veloplugs added 8 grams to my wheels in pair. Rim tape Rae sent weights around 50 grams in pair. Good weight saving.
It's weird, but true. 2015 Campy groups are heavier. Cranks arms are fatter, spider is also fatter. Chainrings are wider now, so thats normal I guess. In advantage, it suppose to be stiffer than the old ones, but I didn't have a chance to compare that.
It is like;
But it is a present from a good friend
About the build. I was thinking about Digital Blue Michelin Pro4 tires, but might be too risky.
I will have my pink bottles soon, so maybe pink tape on the tops and thats all. I have no plan for stickers, yet...
But I am open for any ideas
@glepore; I am planning to buy, at least titanium bolts for my seatpost. But if you have any recommendation for me, that I can buy as a set, I would love to see it
My compression plug is already changed, its Cane Creek. I had that one extra at home, and realised it is much lighter so I used it.
@Raineman; I already had a pair of Chinese carbon bottle cages. They weren't holding bottle well enough, that I lost one during a long ride, so I bought this.
I prefer using only one cage, and a big bottle; rather than risking to lose a bottle during a ride
@vejnemojnen; I think that would be the most expensive weight saving. And still, 50T chainring will look small on the bike; that I don't like it. Brakes can be the next one, but I almost always ride my bike in traffic in Istanbul. I can't risk it from my brakes. Lighter brakes, with the same performance will be really bad in Price/WeightSaving ratio I guess.
Brakes? You might be surprised how nice the planet x are with Reynolds Blues-and you can pick these up for under $100 USD used easily. I went to EE's, which are flat out wonderful, but not "worlds" away from the planet x.
I will remember your recommendation and wait for a bargain for the brakes.
Currently, I need to buy new tires. Which are riding nice, have good puncture resistance, ride good and light. All of them in one tire looks impossible I guess
So I am open for any recommendations...
