Swapped the DA7800 12x27 cassettes on both wheelsets for SRAM Red 1090 11x26 cassettes, saving an estimated 34g per wheelset.
Swapped the basic Jagwire brake cables for Alligator I-Link brake cables, saving an estimated 20g. This part gave my bike mechanic gray hairs! I owe him big for sticking with it. He apparently had issues getting the cable into my Red shifters, so he mixed and matched various cable parts to make it work to his satisfaction.
Swapped the Kestrel EMS Pro/SL 26.0x40cm bar (180g for this one and 173g for my previous) for a Schmolke 26.0x40cm (161g), saving a verified 19g.
Swapped the OEM SRAM Red shifter clamp bands (16g/ea) for a beautiful set from Tune / BTP (5g/ea), saving a verified 22g.
Swapped the Lizard Skins DSP tape for Lizard skins DSP Race tape, saving an estimated 2g. This has to be the most disappointing “upgrade” that I’ve made.
Swapped the OEM bolt (3g) on the cable guide under the BB for an Al bolt (2g), saving a massive and verified 1g. Thanks to mdeth1313 for that "one!"
Swapped the KMC X10SL silver chain for a gold one. No weight savings and it might be too over the top for me. We’ll see.
What’s awfully interesting is the verified weight difference of 109g between my Reynolds Assaults (46mm depth) and Attacks (32mm depth). The wheelsets have the same hubs, same tubes and same tires although those on the Attacks have 1-1.5K miles on them. Reynolds used to advertise that the difference between the two wheelsets was a mere 20-30g, but are now saying it’s 75g. The latter seems to match my current reality, but a search of my ’09 posts indicates the former was true. Hmm.
Bike pics and ride report to follow tomorrow if the weather holds.
