I've been using the mcfk expander that came w/ my stem along with a fibre-lyte top cap and it's been trouble free.

A 20g penalty for a non-WW expander is quite a lot tbh but it looks like you're saving loads and loads of grams everywhere else anyway. If you don't trust the Ultrastar then I'd go with with the MFCK one or whatever same open catalogue design like it (JRC).

Here she is! 777g for frame (Size 54). Fork seems a little heavy coming in at 345g, but i'll be cutting that. I thought the fork was supposed to be claimed sub 300g?

That frame is freakishly light compared to my SL6 Pro (56), which was 980-1000g out-of-the-box. The fork was 350g uncut, so not much of a difference there.

I just say am sworks fork that had some steeper cut off and left a 25mm conical spacer under then stem. The piece cut off was 42g so I should get a good 50g cut off the front fork since I'll be slammed. That seems like a lot but based on what I saw and weighed today at bike shop, I would imagine 50g is pretty realistic

I got 33g off by cutting mine (slammed on the 56) so 50g may very well be in the ballpark with the 54, if the full steerer lengths are closely matched.

If only I could get my rear end comfy on the Sworks power saddle I'd be able to save another 75-80g on the build! Had to use the power expert with level 2 padding. Might try to pick up a good conditioned used sworks juat to try it out again. The expert has been the answer for my bum though.

My goal was to get down into thw sub 13lbs range (under 5.89kg), but with my 4.5 clinches, expert saddle and aero bars I dont think it will happen.

Seatpost - Zero degree offset Sworks post (Uncut) - 400mm so I would imagine I would cut off at least 50mm.

Waiting for my bars, stem and Fetha garmin mount to come in. Bars wont be here till end of next week as they were on back ordered. Stem should be here early next week, not sure on garmin mount as it is coming from Australia. I'm traveling for work all next week so that will keep me distracted. I'm HOPING not this coming weekend but the following weekend. fingers crossed
