Bar stem and seatpost would be nice to replace for something better looking as well as saving a bit more weight, and you could easily drop 200g on a similar priced wheelset (or cheaper if you weren't bothered about aero), though the Syncros wheels do reportedly have very good lateral stiffness and acceleration.
I am keen to keep the wheels on, they are extremely good and I paid nowhere near the rrp.
I have done a bit of searching and the other bits appear to be:
Saddle: 185g (assuming it’s this one - http://www.wiggle.co.uk/fizik-arione-r3 ... ions-2013/)
Cantis – 297g for the pair
Cassette - 215g
Chain - 253g
The cantis are really good so I would be slightly hesitant to replace those but everything else is up for grabs.
None of it seems particularly heavy to me (although the chain seems like a lump) but are there particular bits that people can recommend from real world riding that would help me shed some weight?
I am really interested to know how much people think I would lose by replacing the cables and I would be keen to swap the bars out for some aero ones…
Finally, I would like to replace the outer chainring because it's actually a SRAM 10 speed. Can anyone recommend a nice light 53 tooth 11 speed outer ring for me please?
Maybe my scales are rubbish...or maybe that chainset is adding a ton of weight.
I suppose you save with tubs and no tubes and the Hollowgram chainset, but that is quite a difference.
Very interested in those Praxis rings though
'18 Giant TCR Advanced Pro 1 - R8000 - QuarQ DZero - SLR1
'16 Genesis Equilibrium - U6800 - FSA SRM - WH6800
'13 Giant Trinity Composite - U6800 - QuarQ DZero
Carbon bottle cage - cheap Chinese ones can be about 16 g for $15 each.
Aluminium screws for bottle cages. Ti screws and bolts elsewhere.
Supersonic Race 28 (55 g) or Panasonic R'Air (66 g) inner tubes. Check the weight of your current ones first (could be anywhere up to 110 g).
Bar tape - Bike Ribbon Eolo Techno is apparently very light (33 g).
However, tons of weight to be saved in saddle, some in bars, and some in post, all worth the money..
Trade wheels for something lighter and tubular, trade quarq for something lighter as well, eg SiSl2 w/ power2max/quarq spider..
I have a sub 6k evo with sram red, 404tubs, 3T LTD... should be easy for you to get sub 7k - start with saddle, post and handlebar..

did you measure your screws/bolts before ordering Ti or already have the measurements? I have my HiMod en route and want to pre order all Ti bolts/screws in advance but have no idea what size/style I must order. Thanks in advance
