Just picked my group up for a new build and thought I post some real world weights:

Right lever: 212.1g
Left lever: 210.3
Rear derailleur: 198.9g
Front derailleur: 87.1g
Front brake: 173.9g
Rear brake: 170.8g
Crank, left arm (165mm): 197.0g
Crank, 52/36, right arm (165mm): 493.8g
Bottom bracket: 76.1g
Cassette, 11-25: ~235g (includes the central plastic holder)
Chain: ~263g (no missing links, includes plastic wrapping)

Not weenie, but it was never meant to be and pretty close to the claimed weights. Looks fantastic in person though, can't wait to put this on an upcoming build!

I recently upgraded to 6800, 6700 just didn't feel right to me on several levels. The 6800 is a dream. Other than presenting way to many gearing choices it's the best group set I've ever had.

Thanks for the info and the inspiration! I've had a 6800 group sitting in the garage for a few months awaiting the arrival of my new frame. You inspired me to weigh it and see what the variance is. I'm the same as you, not too fussed about the weight, but am going to weigh each component just out of curiosity. Is this how it all begins????

Rear mech 196g
Front mech 87g
Front brake 175g
Rear brake 171g (direct mount with plastic guide in place)
Left lever 210g
Right lever 213g
Left pedal 129g
Right pedal 129g
Cassette (11-25) 229g (minus plastic holder)
Praxis BB30 BB 128g
Left crank arm 194g
Right crank (53/39 170mm) 496g
KMC X11L chain 249g (uncut)

Thanks to everyone posting.

@mitchgixer6 - is the Praxis BB30 BB 128g is for the complete BB30 or PFBB30 set-up?

I'm not too sure now you mention it. I took everything out of the box and weighed it, but I may well have put the PF30 sleeve away somewhere 'safe' already as I won't be needing it. I'll check once I get home after work.

The Praxis works BB is 128g minus the PF30 sleeve.
