:welcome: Welcome to the forum. The saddle is a Tioga. Nice weight on the bike and you have lots of opportunity to drop more.

No real plans yet, just gonna ride. I know I can drop a good amount still but my original goal was to build it all up for less than 1k. Came out pretty good for only have $900 in it.

Welcome! I'm curious about that Tioga saddle. How many miles have you stacked up on it? Is it at all comfortable? The waffle pattern seems like sitting on lawn furniture, but the web site says a full carbon Stratum model tips the scales at 120g!

Don't Tioga say the spider has to be replaced every year?!

Personally I'd cut the seatpost bolts unless you are into budget priced body piercing of the nether regions.
