shifters 312 (156f/157r)
front derailleur 87
rear derailleur 166
crankset 717
bottom bracket 106
brakeset 286
chain 251 (full length)

He's using a Red cassette but I think a PG-1170 is around 240g.

Since you're using 9000 shifters already, the difference is not going to be large at all.


I feel stupid now that, I didn't weight my parts. I was so excited to have the parts so I put them on the bikes asap.

Thanks for the numbers. I compared them with numbers I found at BikeRadar.
Here is a table for my equipment vs. Force 22

Equipment | Force22 | My Bike | Difference
Shifters | 312 | 364 | -52
Front Derailleur | 87 | 89 | -2
Rear Derailleur | 166 | 195 | -31
Crankset | 717 | 765 | -48
Brakes | 286 | 335 | -51
Cassette | 231 | 212 | +19
Chain | 251 | 239 | +12

Total will be 153 grams.
I don't know BB weight in sram, but new Shimano BB is 77grams. So I believe there will be 30grams of difference there, and final will be 120 grams.

Switching to DoubleTap shifters is a huge gamble for me now, and I think, it is not a good idea to play it just for 100 something grams.

Check out Madcow's groupset weight post over at fairwheel.

He doesn't have 6800, but others have documented that well. he has a nice breakdown of actual weights on the Sram Force 22.

My Force 22 shipped on Friday, so I'll be able to post weights next week.
