R2000 CAAD 5 frame (waranty R700 black frame)
Bike is stock except for
Dura Ace Levers,
3T Zepp XL bar and stem combo,
EC70 Carbon post,
Dura Ace Chain,
Dura Ace Cassette,
And Selle San Marco Era K saddle.
If anyone has some ideas on how to ligthen her up let me know. Personally I was going to go with FSA Team issue crank and BB combo, a set of Tufos , USE Carbon Post, and a SLR saddle. I figure with this combination i should be able to save around 600 grams but the same could be said for buying a new wheelset. Any thoughts?

make sure you get on OK with the saddle.. I ride a san marco era Ti and it's dead comfy even though it's not the lightest. Seen some guys in the middle of a weeklong stage race riding out of the saddle 'cos it's so uncomfortable!!

Dance you cares away, worries for another day, dance your cares away, down at fragglerock.

My new ones will. The older set has the Al axle (which I specified).
Ride lightly!
