Quite disappointed that it wasn't lighter than 18.02 lbs, however there is still plenty of upgrades i can do around this frame!
Feel free to scrutinise my set-up, offer advice on upgrades etc.
I was thinking some tubular wheels, lighter brakes, pedals and cassette to knock off a considerable amount of weight.

Looks like carbon fork to me though. The opening on the stem reveals it.

It's got an aluminum steerer, but fact carbon forks themselves. I think an enve 2.0 fork would be a good replacement, though would i leave it black or get it sprayed to match the frame?
Yes on the basis the frame is relatively cheap and alu.
No in that the continual hard accelerations in that type of riding puts a premium on light weight.
Stacks will more often than not shaft the bars and shifters rather than anything else - carbon frames really are pretty resilient and don't normally take the brunt of it anyway.
Alu bars and Rival/105/Centaur shifters ...
Stiff, Light, Aero - Pick Three!!
