Just put on a SLR Carbino saddle, choped the seat post, and got rid of the SS cages and put a carbon one on instead. New weight is 6876g, I smell UCI limit. Need to get is down some more.
With some tubies, get it to 6200g! HAHA! Superlite is back baby!
Also, my seat post now weighs 137g with a 45mm cut, saving 15g.
PEOPLE! I NEED YOUR HELP!!!
Anyone here use Performance Lunar Lite Tubes? Any good, or too light and easy to pop.
Also, for anyone that has Ksyriums, what wheelsets have you ridden that are as stiff, solid, and track as well, that also weigh less? The Ksyriums are bad ass, but their weight is starting to get to me. 1570g for a wheelset puts a pit in my stomach.

oooh... i look forward to your answer. are they stiff engouh? the cirro's are very light. i believe, how many? you know the weight?
Scratch that for weight savings, put my Arione back on. Until they can make a seat as comfortable as it, I'm not putting anything else on there.
In the Aspide range there are many different saddles: they can satisfy every kind of rider. And for my... ass... they're far more comfortable than Selle Italia SLR...
I think Aspide FX is the one closest to SLR Carbonio... 140gr more or less...

I have the same saddle... I can only sit on it for about 90 minutes... I've been looking at the prolink which seems like a comfortable saddle, but it weighs twice as much as the slr... but on the Belgium roads, weight isn't the only thing that matters... so maybe I will get one of those prolink saddles...
I've had no problems with the normal SLR. But it's personal issue. Altough I found the SLR more comfy than a Flite
Like I said, I use to ride the SLR Evolution, which has NO padding. It was much more comfortable then the padded SLR Carbonio.
I race on a set of American Classic Carbons and they are fantastic, but I don't use them as an everyday wheel. If you are looking for something to use everyday then carbon wheels are somewhat questionable as far as the life of the rim goes (never know what you might hit ). I say that because I hit a pothole a bit too hard and had to replace the rear rim at a cost of $300. Ouch!
