Hey all, been looking on here for awhile about lightweight parts and builds, and finally finished my own.

Here is my 2003 Caad7. Final total weight was confirmed on a hanging digital scale at 6600 grams for size 58c -----so i think thats really good.

I know that I could lose some more weight with going to a lighter cassette than Chorus or an Extralite Seat collar and some other small upgrades, but i want to ride. Those small tweaks can come later.

Heres the spec list and pics to follow:
