No to detract from the chosen frameset and parts for a super light build, concerning geometry, what would be the ideal specs to look out for?

LOL, no need for extra bricks, those would anchor any boat on their own!
I never understood why Shimano made such heavy pedals.


There's really nothing to understand. Shimano is not in the chicken race for the lightest product and never will be. Japanese engineers still rely on old English BSA because it's the gold standard. Cranks are made of aluminum with forged steel chain rings and carbon wheels have aluminum brake track. Weight is important but they don't prioritize it over functionality, longevity and reliability.
Racing is a three-dimensional high-speed chess game, involving hundreds of pieces on the board.

There are many ways to lighten up those kits as well. The jagwire shift and brake kits are tanks compared to what else is available and there is a fair bit of tuning that can be done to each kit but not the each kit would be able to have the same tuning. So again there is a fair bit of extras you can trim off. Like running 1x on eTap and not even using the shifters and just using the BLIPBOX and some BLIPS or CLIKs which is an even lighter set up.

Just need to get the right set of levers for the brakes and hide the junction box for the blips, that's a really good option If the bike is design as a pure climbing bike with just 1x11

Can do the same with 2x11. And it is still lighter potentially.

That is very useful...

I have made a Google Sheets version which can be added to by anyone with the link...

Groupset Weight Comparison

Added the new Dura Ace 91xx components to it, and cleaned up the existing one.
