Ok I couldnt get the bike to balance on my counters, but my initial estimate including the T47 BB is 2650g ish for a size 50 with some left over brake and shift housings. Steerer tube is pre-cut and still has about 15mm left on too.

I shall do it tomorrow again, but one thing is for sure, this is a minimum 2000g frame even at the smallest size.

Im not too disappointed as this wont be my road bike, but at the same time the front and back Isospeed, seat post make it heavy plus the reinforcement for the storage.

2650g?! My XL off-road touring bike steel frame is the same. Are you sure?!

Will re do it as mentioned. You have to keep that inner WW in control and not cause a commotion here 😌

With fork included?
Yes. Those weights include fork and headset. Also have in mind that the T-47 adds ~100gr for the metal bonded to the carbon? Fair price to me for creak free bottom cracket.

A 2020 Domane SL6 stock (Ultegra mechanical) has a claimed weight of 8.74 kg (size 56). But this includes the Bontrager R3 hard case tires (32mm) at 364 gr. So the stock wheelset and tires are a combined 2,508 grm (not including tubes). I think this is where you can trim a bit of the fat.
My Emonda ALR 5 with full D-A 9000 is 7.1 kg. With air in the tubes. Build cost ~2000 USD. :D

While this is true, my aging body has been telling me that it would rather ride in relative comfort at the expense of a few grams. (My young body 20 years ago would've disagreed, but that's no longer relavent.)

Welp, Im now an owner of an SL5 in Purple.

I love that purple color... I wish mine wasn't "boring black", but I got mine used and so beggers can't be choosers. Mine has the purple color in the TREK logo, so I've been trying to work with that to add more color.

I almost went with a Black frameset myself but didnt want the wait or uncertainty (was quoted August). Admittedly, the Purple caught my attention

Then I almost bought an SL6 because it was a slammin deal, but I dont want to clean bikes every (gravel) ride

Here's a couple of pics. In some angles it appears Blue and Purple in other angles/light

Oh man, that is a freekin' cool color! Reminds me of the first time I saw that color a million years ago when Trek first came-out with their OCLV carbon frames... I want to say it was the late 90's...

Also, if you're doing a Di2 build, I recommend you get the Di2 wireless module before putting the whole bike together. You'll likely have to get two new Di2 cables so you can splice the wireless module in between your shifter and the battery. I have my wireless module tucked under the stem. You can see it peaking-out below the stem/Garmin in this photo:

With the module, a head unit like a Garmin becomes radically more useful... But I digress as I don't want to drag this thread off into Di2 land :oops:

One extra cable is needed, not two.

True... depending on how much extra wire you're willing to put-up with. I opted to size the wires to fit rather than having extra laying around in the bike. I still have to original wire should I want to go back.

Thanks @PoorInRichfield

It'll be a SRAM Red eTap 1st gen group. Im just getting antsier day by day, too bad my consolidator is backed up which means another set back for me. It delays things by a week or 2 more.

You don't have to connect both ends of the EW-WU111. Mine is connected to one of my spare shifter ports and sits in the handlebar drop using a 150mm cable.

Also, keep in mind that Shimano say it "must be" outside the frame. It'll probably work inside the frame (mine does), but if you get any signal issues you're probably on your own ;)

[edit] sorry for dragging this off into Di2 land anyway - I'll disappear again ;-)
