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).
