200g was an exaggeration more like 181g :D
Still pretty good bang for my buck :thumbup:
Wouldn’t have bought a new crank or gone the THM route...bit too pricey

Crank was 350g, photo is 360g but there are 10g of spacers
Rings were 94g and 35g
Bb was 80g
Total 559

sram red GXP weighed 595g
BB C-Bear 145g
740g

Thanks for showing yours, tempting to do mine

My one has a lot of bits lighter but seeing yours I can get mine to 5.9kg if money was no object, I spent like bit more than £3500 (all new parts) note I have disc brakes so according to gcn if rim it be 5.5kg as disc adds 400g

Compare ours, if chose what you got:
Chain save 23g
Crankset save 128g (but I got a powermeter and bb30 so unsure what cogs save)
Seatpost save 16g
Stem save 59g (but I use 130mm)
Saddle I replacing 126g (claim 120g) to a claim 88g saddle

Frame unless you can help me with?, I save 541g if can get sub 1kg (combine fork and frame, I use 56cm) only ones I can find are over £4k and I look for normal even though I cycle over 20mph a lot as not like aero look

^ means I have to spend a guess £4,600-£4,800 more that not look to do unless current frame breaks

All rest I got light but compression heaiver as it keeps sliding no matter what

So you get to see list so far https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... 4bIBCb7lE4

Also it be updated when get saddle, tape wheels, and get new tyre weight

I know should use a new place but thought be nice to compare here and say thanks for showing yours
