Awesome thread. Great to see everything being weighed.

I'm so disappointed at Cervelo these days. Especially considering I have a 2008 SLC-SL that weighs 5.77kg with 46mm carbon wheels and no exotic parts other than Tune Mig/Mag hubs and dura-ace 7800.

A 2007 R3-SL running 1st Gen Sean Red with Chris King hubs in Mavic Open pros weighing at 6.4kg.

211g aero seatpost I guess is kinda acceptable. But a 237g handlebar is sad considering how much composite knowledge Cervelo has. How much did the fork weigh?

Cervelo could have easily designed a sub 200g handlebar. Hopefully the fork weighs sub 330g?

The Handlebar is actually 270.7 (for a 38cm), the 42cm ones are 279.8! yeah, I think they could have gone lighter by some way, there are no aftermarket bars that will fit either (you need cable/hose grooves that extend into the clamp area)

The Fork is c. 430g due to the expander/quill reinforcement and general disc brake strengthening, again it could be lighter!

Saying all that, I have not ridden a bike that holds speed as well as this one does, it just flies along

What about something like the Pro Vibe Ultralights? If I remember correctly that bar has a hole on the back that may be big enough to route everything.
