...except for all those silly yellow warning stickers (fork, wheels, seatpost) he forgot to remove before posting pics on WW.

Soo close yet so far. I was hoping to get sub 6kg without having to do anything too drastic. Even removing my computer (Strada Wireless) and cages (Mandibles w Al bolts) could only get me 100g closer..

Oh well I could always build a new set of wheels...

Like your ride man striking.
I've just bought some heds 2012 stinger 6's which are 28 mm wide and the tub is 24mm did you have some seating issue around the valve or are the narrow rims ok. I have a zipp disk an has a groove for the tape.
Will have a go at a 25 mm with as flat a tape at the as they make.
Full steam we go against the odds
Headfirst we go against the grain
Against the odds, against the grain

@sastre Thanks! These are 2010 Stingers so still pretty wide. My brakes had to be setup fully open for clearance. No issues with the installation of my tires ( Bontrager XXX).

@cerro I do have lots of pictures on my Flickr account in my signature, but I still should get some new ones as I made a couple changes.. The size is a 52.

Just had a BG Fit done and ended up raising my saddle 15mm and moving it back 5 mm. Got off pretty cheap since I only needed to get the ++insoles and a couple shims.

Last weekend I installed a Ti bolt kit for my stem, new skewers and a set of ilinks.

Here's mine! Right above 7kb with no mods! Really want to close up on 6.8kg! Any suggestions of inexpensive things I colud do? Will be changing the wheel set and the handlebars.

@ crohnsy: still a nice weight, getting it lighter would take silly money and parts

a light bike does make you go faster unless you are slow
