Lovely bike. In fact a to lugged carbon tubed bike is a dream. Please change the cassette to a Campagnolo one. That will improve the shifting too.

Those are both dual pivot I think. The single pivot rear saves something like 30g.
Yes these are both DP with lighter pad holders, and yes I was thinking of doing a SP rear based on your past input.

Then these BNIB EEs poped up on my local CC and the guy was willing to sell them dirt cheep so I went that route.

I do like how the EEs blend well with the same modern industrial look as the Seven 622 SLX frame.

Down a few more grams

I ended up removing the rest of clear coat and paint around the shifters and sanded them smooth.........

And what did your scale say? That's quite light considering Campy crank, regular cable housing, and Conti tires.

I cannot stop looking at this bike. Five times already today and I had to save the pictures to my phone! There is something about carbon and titanium that just gets me. I want a 622 SLX Carbon some day. So stealth, but so elegant and blingy at the same damn time. The yellow sidewalls are great to add a fresh feeling but I still like the all black tires the most. What would this bike look like with some Lightweight Fernwegs or Reynolds RZR92s? Some deep aero wheels?

Yea there is alot to like about the 7 62 SLX, the deepest wheels I have right now are 55, but I have always liked the look of deeper wheels.

Here is a 622 SLX I came across that was interesting, you may like some things about it .....
