Hey! Thought it was about time I posted up one of my bikes.
Hope you all enjoy it. Feel free to point out some places to lose weight

There's quite a few parts that could be lighter, just depends on budget.
Cassette, chain, chainring bolts, expander, peddles, bottle cages, saddle, cables and stem.

Thanks for your opinion.
Cassette: when I get a set of race wheels I will get a sram red cassette.
Chain: what is significantly lighter? dura-ace is about 20g ligther
Chainring bolts: yeh they seems heavy so im wondering if it was a scale error
Expander: I guess you got cane creek and extralite
Pedals: I would like to stay with Shimano cleats so these can't get any lighter
Bottle cages: think these are lighter than arundel mandibles but are beaten by tune cages and the 4 or 6 gram ones from the company whose name is on the tip of my tongue. I will get better cages eventually as these ones scratch my bottles badly
Saddle: love the shape of this one however I could go for the carbon railed version about 20-30g lighter
Cables: those cable weights are just a random estimate. I probably overestimated. Next time I need new cables I will go with Jagwire Elite link
Stem: how light can they get in 140mm?

SRAM cassette is definitely a good choice. Chain KMC Xl, are around 228g for 116 links, Yes Extralite expander. Bottle cages go for Carbonworks, 15g for two. My lightest Berk saddle is 68g, so a good saving there, and Jagwire cables. saved a little to. Stem would be quite expensive but there's MCFK, AX Lightness, THM.
Have you a target weight.

Looks good, but the spreadsheet and pictures don't seem to match: Quarq cranks vs ultegra, am I missing something? :noidea:
:hello:
Cannondale Supersix 2008 (weight: 7.3kg)
B'twin Triban 540 (in bits)
Vitus "Benotto" 979 (weight: :? )

Good spotting, forgot to address this in the post :)

The quarq crank was an upgrade and have not taken photos since.
Also changed pedals and other things since. Will get a new photo soon

Will definitely get a red cassette. Not sure if I can shell out that amount of cash for 20g less. Will look into a different expander and cages sometime. Not interested in changes saddles because this one suits me really well. Definitely going elite link cables. May keep the stem or go for the next level 3T carbn stem.

For a really light chain look at the PYC sp1101 (or something to that effect) on ebay, cheaper and similar weight to KMC.
