I haven't been riding that long, originally purchased a Planet X SL pro carbon (sram red) with the intention to upgrade the frame as and when I get into riding more. Only a few months later I’m totally hooked and decided that this time of year is ideal to buy a new frame. So treated myself to an early Christmas present a few weeks ago a Cervelo R3 and ended up buying a set of wheels as well mavic ksyrium yksion limited edition 10th anniversary wheels due to the deal that was sold to me was so tempting.
I have taken all of the sram red components off the Planet X and rebuild using a 2nd hand tiagra group set (using this for commuting, winter training and turbo session). I’ve also cleaned up all of the sram bits and ordered a few new parts for the Cervelo.
Frame (With pretty much everything attached) - 926g
Forks (un-cut) - 384g
Seat post 3T Dorico Team - 234g
Bar 3T Ergosum Team - 210g
BB Rotor Press fit BBright - 109g
SRAM Read Shifters - 298g
SRAM Red Rear Derailleur - 146g
SRAM Red Front Derailleur - 70g
Brakes Ultra Light CNC (Including Pads) - 199g
Headset Cane Creek (supplied with frame - 63g
Rear Cassette SRAM 10 PG-1070 - 238g
Wheels Mavic Ksyrium Yksion - 2220g Tyres, tubes fully inflated (sorry no picture)
Picture of the frame with wheels
The following parts are still required
* Rotor 3D+ BBright crank
* 3T Arx Team Stem
* Also will be getting the SRAM red rear cassette (nearly 100g lighter the the one I have)
* SRAM 1090R Chain
I will hopefully be getting the bike built later this month. Finished weight should be around 6.5kg.
#2) I find it hard to believe that a Helicopter designer would misspell Helicopter
#3) Avoid the SRAM Red Cassette, it is too damn loud and doesn't wear well. Your force one is the best blend of performance, wear, and cost.
#4) I look forward to the rest of your build!
I have a lightly used one I can sell you for 70 bucks

2. Not a WW... but you weigh every bit of the bike...
Stop with the denial! Admit your weenie-ness!
Nice bike, by the way!

And you can call me Macktastik Honey Pete Kicks, thank you.
Although I do find some of the 'extreme' weight loss bike very interesting where parts are modified etc. (I won't be going that far with mine!)
Just removed the seat post spacers and the only weigh 1-2 grams each although the post still seems a little heavy similar to the 3t bar.
I will be purchasing the rotor crank asap and cables either nokon or gore depending on my finances.
My Red FD shifts from small to big ring with no hesitation or missed shifts yet (1200km)
Set it up parallel to chainrings with 3mm gap above big ring.
Maybe I'm just lucky and maybe SRAM has fixed it.
I am rather fussy when it comes to gear set up, and changing between a DA bike I'm sure I would notice any major discrepancy.

Chase your dreams - it's only impossible until it's done
My six month old SRAM Red FD has been fantastic for the over 3,000 miles I've ridden it.
I'd say they've fixed whatever issue the Red FD had.
As above, I never had any problems shifting with my Red FD, although I have only done a 1000 or so miles on it.
I have ordered the final bits for the bike this week,
* Rotot 3D+ Cervelo BBright Crankset (should have the cervelo logo on the crank arms) - delivery est 1st week in Feb
* SRAM BBright ceramic bearing (nearly twice as much money as I was expecting!) - delivery est 1st week in Feb
* Yokozuna Cables - Turned up yesterday The whole kit weighed just under 300g although there is a lot more cable than I will need for the bike build
* 3T Team bar tape black - delivery expected next week
* 3T ARX Team stem will order sunday after a bike fit on my old bike.
I then just have to sort my bottle cages out then book in in to be built in Feb.
