Nice decision on the Ti bolts!
It's the big and little stuff that conspires against our scales.

By the way, will the BTP FD hanger work on your Madone? See "shifting" on this link.
It worked on my 1st gen Madone, which I sold. If it'll work for you, I'll give it to you.

Nearly the same parts as I have, should save you a bit of weight :)

Partly tuned the force rear derailleur

Still need to get some new pulley bolts, pinch bolt, adjustment screws and maybe hollow pivot bolt but no idea how to remove that!

Looking good, I should be hoping for similar weight savings but I went the KCNC alloy jockey wheels that were 18 grams for the set.

Finally got around to weighing it.

Frame build

Image

Full front Wheel

Image

Full rear wheel

Image

4797 + 1004 + 1510 = 7311g

Image

7311g (Current weight) - 809.5g (savings on the way) = 6501.5g :D

Jason at fairwheel will be making them, they're just waiting on the extralite hubs to arrive. Should be built next week.

Hopefully I'll get them by mid April as they have to ship to UK.
