The weight is 6.22kg (13.71lbs) right now but there are a few small changes in the future so it should drop a bit.
- Trim the excess steerer tube, I need to make sure it's not too low before I get the hacksaw out.
- Find a lower stack conical spacer for my headset, I removed the excessively large one that came with the bike so I could get the bars lower.
- Swap the tubes out for Bontrager Race XXX Lite with 60mm valves.
- Wait for my parts from Smud Carbon to arrive (saddle, topcap, seatpost cradle and cages).
Never been a fan of glossy black, but this one really works for me, great work

That'll definately be on my list of changes. I need to trim the last section of cable for the rear mech a bit as well.

I agree that the ugly bontrager logos let the stem down.
Is the best method for removing logos wet sanding? I've seen a few threads that explain how best to do this, I'll have to have a search.
