I keep meaning to post up more component weights but haven't gotten organised to do that yet. So in the mean time, her's a nicer photo from the first proper ride!

Final build weight (at least for now anyway!):

Haha, back on the wall again! Already making some changes :noidea: :lol:

I realised that i'd forgotten about putting in a compression plug so I ended up just putting the original cannondal SI top cap (which is more of an aluminium bung) on as...well...safety first.

+12g

But luckily I found someone locally selling some of the old PlanetX / Fouriers brakes for cheap so I picked them up.

-70g

And as much as I love the Thomson stems, they are heavy, and I decided I really prefer the 'look' of a -17 degree stem on this type of bike. Whether or not I can ride it is yet to be proven but i've pulled the reach in a little bit to compensate so it should be fine. Maybe later I will go back to a new Thomson -17 degree but for now it's Kalloy Uno.

-45g

And got some el-cheapo carbon cages from Ali Express to replace the old one I already had. Sticking with 1 for now but have 2 should I need it.

-10g

So now i'm down to 6.45 Kg, or 6.49 (ish) with bottle cage and GPS mount. My aim now is to get it down as close to 6.4 as I can and then I know I can easily add 300-400g on some deeper section clinchers if I want something a bit more aero (and I think I will like the look a bit better too).
