I'd go for the SRAM Red, shfiting is not as smooth but super weight savings.

Also, what's your inside leg measurement? Saddle seems awfully high, you may be able to slam the stem if you lower it (the saddle) a bit.

Inside leg is 95cm. I’ve had several bike fits and biomechanics analysis and arrived at my fit numbers but will be having a review soon once my Propel is finished.

New cranks, earlier red (2011) is heavier but will still be ~50g lighter than 6800 cranks plus with the adapter gone and BB30 bearings about 50-60g saving there. 280g red shifters compared to 419g 6800 just to think of another saving.. it’s going to be tantalisingly close to <7kg!

Took it out the other day with the wheels from my Propel. Took some nice photos. Need to paint this thing a crazy colour.

You must pedal very toes down; the Lemond forumla puts you at 838mm saddle height!

Just waiting for BB30 bottom bracket to arrive and we are going ahead with the SRAM Red 10 speed swap.. it’ll be very interesting to see what the final weight is.

I finally finished taking the rest of the old paint off of the 3T Rigida fork, and after stripping, cleaning and reassembling the bike pressed in the BB30 cranks.

The full rebuild will be done on Thursday.

Super excited! Weight is with SRAM Garmin mount and cadence sensor. Plenty of places I could drop further weight later also. Painting the fork will add some.

I’ll take some proper photos as soon as the weather clears!

Nice. I think it'd look better if you polished up the fork and then maybe gave it a thin clear coat.

Thanks mate. It’s a simple build.. I’m not even using lightweight inner tubes.. Red really is a weight weenies friend. I could drop another 80g with some decent inner tubes.

I swapped my 6800 Ultegra for full 10spd red - even the chain is 1090R. That’s what catapulted this build forward.
