Very occasional poster and long-term lurker here, but thought I’d share my 2017 Giant TCR Advanced SL 0 Etap.
Much of it is as it was off the shelf, so this certainly isn’t a real WW project but I’ve done some basic weight saving to get it down from 6.18kg new to 6.05kg (no pedals). Total weight with pedals is currently at 6.28kg, which I’m pretty pleased with. The Garmin K-Edge mount is a relatively burley 54g so could shave a bit more off there. I also need to sort out the cables, as they currently get in the way of my Garmin when it is mounted.

Frame: Giant TCR Advanced SL with ISP
Wheels: Giant SLR 0
Tyres: Hutchinson Fusion 5 Galactik 25mm Tubeless Ready (25ml of sealant in each tyre)
Skewers: Lifeline Professional Carbon/TI
Groupset: Full SRAM Red with Etap. 34/50 and 11-28
Saddle: Fizik Antares 00
Bar tape: Lizard Skin DSP 2.5mm
Bar: Giant Contact SLR
Pedals: Look Keo Blade Carbon and a Look Keo Classic (to be replaced with a Garmin Vector 2S when I swap it from my winter bike)

Any thoughts or ideas for some cost-effective weight saving would be welcome, though I’m not looking to spend much more on it.
