- EE Cycleworks Top Nut/Cap - I lost one of the "walls" on my Extralite Expander. I will weigh both when it comes in.
- Chinese 9g Bottle Cages - These are half the weight of the Sl Speeds that I have. Savings will be around 18 grams.

- Berk Composites Dila Padded - I have the 152mm Pro Stealth which is about 210 grams. I should save 100 grams with the Dila.
I bought the same bottle cage only to find out actual weight is 11~12g and it will only fit a 40mm wide bottle. Most of my bottles are 42mm wide... which bottle did you get to fit?

Today I installed the Cane Creek eeTop Nut Preload Assembly. I lost a piece of the Ultrastar so it had to be replaced. I ended up using the assemply and the bolt with the POP top cap. Once I figured out how to stop the top assemby from roataing it was easy.

Its coming down to the wire. I dont have much left to skimp on without going superlight and flimsy or less structuraly sound.

I swapped out my KCNC for the Tune Skyline off of the S5.

I also swapped the Zipp Speed Sl and KCNC bolts for the Chinese knock offs and the Woodman bolts. Notice that it doesnt fit Elite and Specialized bottles. I also tried TacX bottles. The only ones i got to fit were the Nathan bottles.

Only 80 grams left!!! I dont know where they are coming off of. I can see swapping the 3DF crank for a 3D+ but, that is only 30 grams. Help!

You are running out of places to shed weight!
Some weird and interesting maybe helpful suggestions would be:
- Don't wrap bartape on the tops
- Replace more bolts with titanium or even alloy on the derailleurs
- Change the cassette to 11/28 if the terrain suits it
- Lighter cranks as you said
- Maybe berk could do a custom seatpost and seat clamp
- Have berk make a bar/stem combo
- Have berk made a saddle/seatpost combo
- Lighter headset bearings

the Raceware wahoo mount is a tiny bit lighter than the stock aero one (17gs, about 7.5g weight saving)

Use deda bartape instead of Lizard
Michelin Power Comp instead of Vittoria
Vredestein Latex inners are only 52 gr
What rimtape are you running? Shwalbe Blue is only 10 gr for the wheelset

He's already running Veloplugs, these are less than 10g for both wheels. Cane Creek AER or FSA SL ACB headset bearings and derailleurs tuning will help (lighter jockey wheels and bolts).

I have not. It has gone through my head though. I am concerned with possible resale. What is the rule of thumb for leaving length?

Thanks for the suggestion however, my bar is 26mm. Noone makes a clamp for that size so I have to use the zip tie mount on my stem.

Thanks! Hopefully Cane Creek makes one that fits my headset.
