Added a few more parts:
Zipp Service Course 130mm stem => Zipp Service Course 110mm beyond black.
Zipp Service Course SL70 44cm bar => Easton EC70SL 44cm carbon bar.

Upgraded crankset from Sram Red with metal spider, 172.5mm, 53/39 to Sram Red with integrared spider, 175mm, 52/38. Saved 160gm.

Ordered Vittoria Corsa Control 2.0 TLR tires in 28mm.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with where it's going:

Looks great! Do you have a final weight in mind?

Thanks.
I'm not concerned about weight. Now, after I ordered tires, there're only a few parts where I can save weight: seatpost/saddle/stem/handlebars. I'd stick with stock or close to stock look, you won't see any darimo/mfck parts here. Might swap handlebars/stem later this winter though.

ps. Still need to order bike scales.

Finally measured bike with luggage scale: 7.00kg.
-No pedals
-Wahoo bolt on stock mount.
-Easton EC70SL 44cm handlebars
-Vittoria Corsa Control 2.0 28c tires and one tube installed (too lazy to take it out, will run tubeless).
-Fabric Scoop saddle with Ti Rails.

I'd be happy to see 7.00kilos in the end, but pedals will add 350gm. I can save 100 or so grams with different bars/saddle, but that's about it. Not sure if going tubeless gets me anything.

Dear weightweenies. I've committed a few sins recently.

Those pedals will be installed to start with:

Also adding chaincatcher, wanted to replace ugly hex socket screw that was installed on a bike for some reason:

I've installed Corsa Control 2.0 TLR 30c tires. Was surprised to see actual width bit over 30mm (30.2 or so), was expecting 31-32mm.. Will probably stretch a little after some use. Rims are 32mm wide, tires are 30.2, following 105% rule here.

According to my luggage scale bike is 7.55 kilos with pedals and wahoo bolt, but no chaincatcher or cages.
Pics to come

Great build!

I've installed 28mm Corsa G2.0 TLR on WR50 (25mm internal) wheels, they measured 30.6mm when new. I have only 380km ridden on them, but they ride so nicely at 70psi. Have yours stretched much?

No idea, it's 17F and -8C here in Chicago. My gf ain't very excited about riding in that weather. Need something like 50F/10C at least.

I got almost the same setup for myself: 3T Discus C45 (25mm internal) and 28mm Corsa Controls 2.0 TLR. Haven't mounted yet(looking for a new frame now), but expect it to stretch a little.
