So we are at 14lbs on the nose, no water bottles. That is full computer, radar, etc.

As you might buy it from a shop (no pedals or computer, mounts, or cages, etc) is 13.1lbs (vs emonda slr 9 at 13.45lbs).

Not bad for a bike with wide, 56mm deep aero clincher wheels.

I could go lighter if i found a frd spec frame.

I am not sure how accurate my frame weight measurement was (done on a hanging bike scale), but it seems to be about 100g heavy vs manufacturer claims. I wonder if it has ballast in it as it is a used pro frame.

I may look in the seat tube and bb area.
