New on this upgrade were;

ROTOR 3D30 crankset with noQ 50/34t rings - This saved very little weight but I preferred the look over the 105 crank it replaced. Shifting on the Rotor crank has been faultless (-37g from 105). I was surprised at how light the rings are too.

Rotor BB (BSA) – had to change this for the crank, slight weight gain over the Shimano stock item (+14g over 105)

Front Derailleur – Dura Ace 9000, good performance as expected (-22g from 105)

Rear Derailleur – Dura Ace 9000, perfect shifting as expected, alloy pulley/guide wheels installed as the black plastic ones are boring (-61g from 105)

Fourier BR-S003 brakes – only single pivot, but found them easy to setup and the stopping power on the stock pads is fine. Actually quite impressed with these, good price vs. reduction in weight (-140g from 105)

Saddle – Ultralight carbon saddle from China, and reasonably comfortable considering it is unpadded (-134 over Selle Italia)

Seatpost – Hylix Inline (stock cradle/bolts), does the job, still need to cut off approximately 80mm from the bottom (-80 from Fizik R5)



So 460g saved with plenty more scope remaining…
