Yes, it is really beautifully made, and I would have been happy if it was around 140g, as seen listed in various places online.wheelbuilder wrote:That is disappointing regarding the Skycarb. I really like the build quality of them and the Italian craftsmanship. That is boat anchor heavy though. My "relatively heavy for carbon" Kit Carbonio is only 125ish.
Thanks. The Record groupset seems to be over 250g lighter than Ultegra 6800. So, that is probably a big part of the difference. The only change I made to the Ultegra groupset is the crankset, and you seem to have a mix of Record/Super Record. Another variable is your wheelset (I'm not sure what yours weighs), but neither of my wheelsets is super light. If I change to a full Dura Ace 9000 groupset, which is more comparable in weight to Record, I should get down to around 6.5kg.alpinestar wrote: ↑Tue Dec 19, 2017 8:39 amNice TCR!! Altrough I am a bit surprised at the weight not being lower with it being a size XS and the SL version? Dod you know the weight of the frame? I have a TCR pro 1 in size 56 with 130 stem, that has about the same weight. 6,85kg with cages and pedals built with campag record. So a XS in the SL version I would have thought to be somewhat lower. But its a fantastic frame! Really really love it!

My 55mm wheels are 1535g and my 30mm wheels are 1425g. So, as I said before, it seems the difference in our drivetrains seems to account for the biggest difference in weight.
