Hi guys, sorry if it’s a repetitive question but here goes: what Wahoo mount are you using on your Aerofly handlebars?

I bought a Precotec mount but the bolt snapped at 5nm and I’m not quite sure I want to use it even if they send a replacement bolt.

Edit: I should mention I have a Tarmac, so no Venge stem

The new bike!

Weight is exactly 15.5lbs/7.03kg with pedals.

Will take better photos later. So, please bare with the bike shop shot.

Can't wait until I can ride it!

Out of curiosity, anyone knows if it would be lighter if I rebuild my wheels with CX-Ray spokes?

Definitely looking at 140mm Rotors, any suggestions on what to get that would work with the SRAM AXS shifters?

I'll change out the bartape later, too lazy to deal with that.

Pedal and tubular wheels will not be in the radar.

Not too worried about the cages. Kind of forgotten to bring it to the shop to have them throw it on. Also realized I forgot to ask for a water bottle.... Guess I would be riding without a bottle this Thursday.... Long story short, due to my bizarre situation, I actually do not have any bottles right now...

It's not noticeable on the pictures, but a mount is already on it.

Venge Pro upgraded to Red, any other upgrades? What size? That’s very light

Don’t tell Lewn777. He’ll say you’re lying and a disc aero bike can just barely make 7.5kg.

That's a size 52. Only thing I did was upgrading to Red and a Berk Lupina. Both the Pro and S-Works are the same frame anyway, Didn't like the colors on the S-Works, went with the Pro frameset instead.

Don't know who this person is, but there's a pic with the scale. :D

ask them for the 140
Thanks, I'll look into it. The weight save would probably balance out the weight gain for a potential new wheel set I'm getting.

Shimano XTR RT-MT900 rotors. 89g for 140mm size. Unlike Dura-ace and Ultegra version. Their braking area are large and won't cause weird pulsing with non Shimano calipers.

Tires. Tubes. Custom wheels such as carbon clincher Enve rims and Extralite hubs. The stock Roval wheels are not the lightest. You could easily save quarter to half Pound of weight with custom built "expensive" wheels over the factory Roval.

Pretty sure my Roval CLX50's are lighter then both my Enve 5.6 and Enve4.5AR..your recommendation indeed would be $$$$..as I used those in the rim brake days of old
