How much does 15mm of steerer and a spacer weigh? I’d be fixing that before removing the rubber hood.
There’s half a kilo to be saved by swapping out the mavics for some ax tubs
Money solves all bike weight problems, does it not? We would all have full 9lbs ax lightness bikes...
I made the decision not to go with tubulars a while back. Just a bit too impractical for me. I opted to stay with 25cc clinchers (comfort, ease, reliability, and rolling resistance over weight). And for the 100-150g i could save with a pair of high end lighter clincher wheels... i could be well into my next bike project (felt ia). The grams/dollar were just not there for me. I got the bike/wheels used as a pair, so i am working with it. Now, if the right wheels came along at the right price...
I could also go with narrower/lighter tires, but this is a light bike i can ride (and enjoy), vs a scale princess. Gp5000’s may save me a few g over the 4000’s however.... that is just a matter of time.
To be honest, if this bike gets a wheel upgrade, it will likely be to deeper section aero wheels with 12k carbon to match the frame... but i am saving that for my felt ia build (pure aero).
