hi everyone,

so i am fairly new to the weight weenie business, as i managed to score a close-out on a 2016 SuperSix Evo Hi-Mod ultegra at a screamin good price... i swapped out the ultegra and the hollowgram crank for full SRAM red, traded the mavics for a CERO AR22 wheelset, swapped the stock bar and stem for an Easton EC90 SLX3 bar and Ritchey WCS C260 stem, and am now ready to started doing some much more weight-weenie esque upgrading.

Preliminary Weight Redistribution: -385g
Preliminary weight: 6.56 kg

-i am using the FSA SL-K until i get the Hylix zero setback, which i will then cut to length
-i am using the specialized power expert saddle until i can find something lighter that works for my sensitive undercarriage, or can afford a specialized power s-works
-i did not weigh the frame because i figured it wouldn't matter as i couldn't be bothered to pop out the bearings, remove the derailleur hanger, cable guides, etc... that being said, frame, fork, all spacers, small parts, cable guides, etc weighed 1280ish grams.
-i could not be bother to get accurate weights on cables and housing, so i zeroed out the housing and gave weights on the full lengths of sram cables compared to the ultegra cables cut to length (i.e. probably a bit more saving on the cable lengths than noted)

imminent weight-shavings:

-Carbon Ti X-Lock Titanium Skewers w Aluminum Axle (31g listed weight; planned weight savings, 61g)
-Hylix 25.4 seatpost, 0 setback (131g listed weight, 7-8cm cut off, for 105g total; planned weight savings, 117g)
-Elite Leggero Bottle Cages (15g each listed weight, 30g; planned weight savings 25g)
-Selle San Marco Open Carbon FX Wide (hopefully it works)(125g listed weight; planned weight savings 106g)
-Challenge Corsa Latex Tubes (65g listed weight, 130g; planned weight savings 75g)

imminent weight shavings = 384g
imminent bike weight = 6.18kg

possible weight-shavings:

trim fork 20mm (-15g ?)
less 20mm spacers (-6g)
Time Expresso 12 (manufacturer's claim 155g, more likely 165g; total -48)

other ideas, without going too crazy (my budget is unfortunately not unlimited, and also i still want the bike to be super functional and dependable!) ??



edit: trying to figure out photo upload... and i got it. sorry the photos suck. lighting in my basement is not so nice.
edit 2: bad at math, got that adjusted. forgot the easton handlebar in the custom build, got that added, weight adjusted.

Congrats on the new bike! I love that colorway. 6.6kg is a damn good starting point if you're looking to do some tweaking and gram shaving. Enjoy it!

Very nice.

Will sir be selling off the 2x King Ti cages? If so, feel free to PM me.

@arizonahalfnhalf -- thank you! i love the colorway, too. as soon as i saw it i knew i needed to track one down. i got lucky finding it at as good of a deal as i did! and as for the 6.56kg "starting point", i am already seeing how tough the weight savings can be, as i am running out of things i can accomplish on my budget. but, it will be cool to get the new skewers, hylix post and a lighter saddle-- those will knock a ton off right there!

@terrible1 -- as of right now i plan on keeping the King Ti cages; they are just too nice! and who knows- the carbon elite one i got might suck!
