Really open to suggestions so feel free to leave them here or PM me.
At this time, if I went hub-based I have a choice between the enve 4.5s and the 7.8s so would likely opt for the 4.5s as they will be about 100 grams lighter than the 6.7s were???
Any help is appreciated.
Power2max is a great Meter but it adds about 180 grams I think - which means you won't get much weight savings.
You don't say what you are running right now now for Gruppo - but your 3D+ cranks look like they are about the same weight as Stock Dura Ace or RED cranks.
This link has some good weights (But no Rotor Weights) http://blog.fairwheelbikes.com/reviews- ... k-testing/
If you are running RED - you could do something like a Stages which only adds 20 grams and then run some light rings (Lots of Examples on this site of shaving 50-80 grams on this sight). This would get you below your original crank weight and shave a ton off your rear hub weight.
You could save 200-250 grams in total and still have power.
Thanks everyone. I've contacted P2M and they have said that the spider is an additional 125 grams after removing the Rotor spider. Also, the 3G hub is 330 grams so I would have to have the wheels built up with a rear hub that is at no more than 205 grams to NOT add weight (assuming I went with the same rims/spokes/nipples)... My 3d+ is 735 grams complete with the PF 4130 bearings and qrings. The quarq elsa r is 576 grams without rings and bearings so probably 800 grams - ish complete. Any thing I am missing?
The other main difference was the stages has software upgrades done via bluetooth so no need to plug in the powertap any more.
Pleased i changed and stages has been very reliable for me

Exactly! Like I said above and then run a Stages Carbon Arm. You would probably lose about 250 grams off your Cranks and then run something like a Tune Mag 170 in the back to lose another 160 and presto you lose almost a a full pound!
This is Weightweenies.
