I'm swapping out the cranks pictured for 2010 force (BB30).
I'm going for a white/black/red scheme with a red saddle, tape and tires along with the red on the fork
The projected weight is ~ 7.06 Kg. I could have gotten it down to 7kg, but it wouldn't have been on rotational weight, so I decided to buy a lighter helmet instead (better $/gram ratio at ~110g savings for $90) Rudy Actyum -> Giro Atmos
Here are the specs and approx weights - build pics and final weights will be up within the next few days.
2010 Caad9 bb30 1252g
Easton EC90SLX fork 333g
Specialized carbon 220g
Specialized rib-cage(s) 72g
Groupset (2010 Sram Force)
Fr Derailleur 102g
Cranks (BB30) 645g
Rear derailleur 173g
Chain (1090) 255g
Cassette (PG1070) 220g I was going to swap for an og1090, but I hear the pg1070 runs much smoother/quieter and is worth the weight
Speedplay zero 206g
Gore ride-on 129g
3t ergosum pro bars 270g (may swap out for ritchey wcs logic ii bars - would save ~40g)
Tape: fizik microtex 63g
Stem Ritchey WCS 122g
Saddle SSM ASPide 160g
Neuvation r28 sl6 1520g (eventually want to swap out for ksyrium Sls)
Carbones SSC SL 1765g
michellin pro3 400g
Michellin Aircomp 154g
Mavic Ti 100g
Total W/ Neuvations: 7.06kg = 15.56lbs
Total W/ Carbones 7.3 kg
I'm not sure about how those red parts your talking about would look on that frame. If it were me, I'd do just a black and white build with no other colors, if you add red it'll get confusing to the eye.
The frame came today - Some (low quality) pics are below. I should have it 100% built up by tomorrow.
I'm thinking of taking the stickers off the carbones - opinions?
I was also thinking about removing the stickers off my carbones, but im not quite sure with how it looks once removed. Mines are 2009 so the sticker look better then these. Best would be to remove those sticker and replace them with 3-4 small SSC sticker on each side of the wheels, it would look much more subtle. But I guess these will be hard to find.
That said, black/white pleasseeeee
Maybe some Vittoria Open Corsa Evo CX in Black/White for training:
Looking for a lightweight clincher for hilly racing only - any suggestions? I'm thinking either pro3lights or Diamante Pro Lights. I'd keep the pro3s for flat/rolling courses. I wouldn't be racing on them much, but I'm looking for something <185g that is moderately durable
Lastly, I plan on upgrading to ritchey WCS Logic II bars (~45g lighter and I prefer the shape) I'm thinking either wet black with white tape, or wet white with black tape (fizik microtex, of course):
I should have full build pics (with temp. red parts) posted later today.
Keep the suggestions coming!
Personally I wouldn't run evo cx as a training tire, its too susceptible to cuts & gouges.. you'll get much better training mileage out of the pro3 & its pretty comfortable too (75kg/6bar ime)
As for tires/tyres you could go a lot lighter than 185g. I know I will be heckled for this but I have very good success with Conti Super Sonics and they are around 154g - 160g. They have lasted for me and I am a 185 lbs rider. Match these up with some nice latex tubes and the whole set up would be around 220g-230g which would be nice. I currently have been riding them with 50g tubes and the tire/tube set come in at 205g - 210g.
AERO & LIGHT is RIGHT
Cervelo SLC 5960g/13.13 lbs
Black or white? I guess it depends on the tape color...If one is white, I'll make the other black.
I drank a crapload of coffee and started played around with my spreadsheet for the build, and If I swap out a few things, I can get the build to just about 6.8kg, if not slightly under (6791g). I'll have to wait until I have a little extra $ laying around, but these changes should bring it down about 255g. This wouldn't be too efficient for the $/gram benchmark, but to get an aluminum frame with (relatively) heavy wheels (<1500g) to under 6.8 grams would be pretty awesome.
Handlebar 233g Ritchey logicII
Tires 364g michellin pro3 light
Tubes 140g Michellin Aircomp (70g each)
Skewers 52g Zipp TI (seems like a good combo of safe and light)
Cassette 166g SRAM Red
Seatpost 150g 2010 3T Doric Limited Carbon Seatpost
Cages 46g Specialized Carbon ( I havent dropped a bottle with the rib cage model, so I want to stick with the shape)
Way down the road, I plan on getting some lighter wheels - possibly ksyrium SLs, which would bring it down to ~6.75kg
