Newbie here but a long time lurker on this forum and have admired many WeightWeenie builds over the years.
I've almost finished a new road bike build and thought I'd share the results with you all. I wanted a bike lighter than my existing Eddy Merckx - San Remo 76 but didn't want to compromise too much on reliability and function. The results of this mandate are below.
NOTE: I'm still waiting on my Ritchey stem to be delivered, stem fitted is temporary. I've also got some Tune Mig and Mag hubs waiting to replace the DT 350's shown. Will update once fitted.
Serkie's Parlee Altum

Tires: Specialized Turbo Cotton 700 x 26cc
Pedals: Shimano Dura-Ace R9100

Weight as Shown: 6.64kg
I did have black side-wall tyres on it initially but thought it was too much black going on (see pic below). Other option I looked at was the dark brown sidewall tyre Continental do but wasn't convinced. I want a plush ride anyway so the Turbo Cottons seemed the best option.
1. Ritchey WCS Matrix C220 Carbon Stem fitted.
2. Wheels rebuilt with Tune Mag 170 and Mig 70 Hubs laced to the Enve rims with Saipem CX-Ray spokes.
Weight as shown = 6.64Kg. Not exactly WeightWeenie but a good functional weight.
I'd ideally like to get close to 6Kg so open to suggestions on where people would look to trim some fat.
