Thought I'd share how I saved 260g on my Tiagra Alloy Topstone (M), using saved bike parts ...& tubeless:
146g Tubeless
2g ti jockey bolts
3g swapped the cassette lock-ring from steel for alloy
18g swapped the two centre-loc rotor lock-rings from steel (silver) to alloy (black)
25g Changed the steerer fork bung to the Si Mod version
1g Headset dustcap and compression ring
1g Jagwire small front mech inline barrel adjuster
2g saved trimming hoses whist re-routing cables for UK brakes.
38g for push-in bar plugs!
24g swapped out the 11 cage bolts (from 4g each to 2g each)

Weighs 10.07kg (no pedals).

Alloy Topstones don't need re-dishing, (unlike the Carbon models which do).

Anyone elses rear formula hub give kickback? If I stop peddling suddenly and resting foot at 6 oclock I get a thud and clunk as hub catches up. Also side to side play? My rear wheel moves 3-4mm between the stays. I think the hubs shot in less than 6 months, with not a massive amount of riding.

Looking at these, want DT Swiss around 1600 grams for gravel tyres, any other options?

My rear wheel now has the same kickback symptoms. Disappointing, since the bike is less than one year old. I've used it through the winter here in Norway, which means plenty of road salt.

Will be looking for a new wheelset. Are Hunt 4Seasons any good, or are there better candidates in that price range? Must be able to withstand harsh winter conditions and easily servicable.
