Just put another 1500 miles on the bike this past month or so on warm Florida roads. Now running Corsa Graphene 2.0 28mm (3rd set) and a new KMC x11SL Gold Chain. Bottles were hard to reinsert and rattled in the Sworks carbon cages. So went the Elite Vico's...

Still awesome... thought I would photo-whore a current pic...

Nice to see you loving your bike... Loving mine now almost 8000kms later.
Debating whether to fit those Vittoria corsa or Rapidairs for next tire.. My turbo cottons are close to the end. 3rd pair of Vittoria's due to wear? Or damage?

Wear... look any cotton tire doesn't last all that long... once they start to get cut up and flat a few times I chuck them. Been getting +/- 1000 miles on a set... rears always go quicker, then I use the previous front for a while to stretch them a little further. In the biz so I bought a case of 12 recently. Still have 2 more pairs on the shelf... run 75 psi so they tend to cut less. Most of my riding is either on the ocean in NJ or on the Gulf in FL. Lots of bits of shells on the roads...

Ok... You must change it out earlier than I would normally.. My current set of 3 Turbo Cottons has been rotated to last over 4000kms. Corsas is stated to be hardier and last longer..

Wow that's a pretty light disc SL6. Looks very good and it's not all fancy xtralite/darimo components everywhere. I love my rim braked S-Works SL6 too but it's relatively heavy at like 7100g. I have seen other SL6 and they are like 500g less with almost the same parts.

Most parts are standard:
S-Works Sagan Superstar 54cm
Dura Ace DI2 9150
Aerofly bars 40cm
Zipp Sprint SL 120mm
Enve 4.5 with latex tubes
Micheling Power Competition 25mm
Pro Stealth Carbon saddle
DA pedals, chain and 11-28 cassette
172,5mm cranks with 53/39
Tacx Carbon Cages
Supacaz bar tape
Rec-Mount (this is the first thing i will change)

Sure. The bike isn't built up to be superlight but more of an all-rounder. I still feel like there's some hidden weights inside the frame... Any ideas?

Mine's an all rounder as well... Only true weenie part on mine is the MCFK stem. The Aliante 00 and Keo Blade Ti axles contribute. Superlight tape, shortest Di2 wires, elimitate the forward connector tube...

So reading your spec list... Biggest gap is likely the paint... then wheels, tires, bar, stem, saddle, pedals, tape...

Sagan paint jobs weight 100 to 200gms (at least) more than our bare carbon frames.. Also those enve 4.5 weight 100gms more than roval clx50s. Sprint SL stem isn't light compared to one richW is running.

Thanks. Yep, nothing new I guess but it all adds up in the end. Perhaps the bike will have to go on a diet during winter and not just me :D

Is this cheating?

Currently running 48/18 gearing but 46/16 also fits.
Looks good as a single speed.
