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.
