That looks like an easy way to save a big chunk...
Good point - the shop also stocks Willier 7's which would make this a breeze but the customer is set on using the Dogma

New frame (BH Ultralite), remove graphics, re-label Pinarello, keep the fork.
That alone may hit the target without changes to any of the drivetrain components!

Stem and handlebars weight savings will also be significant vs MOST. Add clavicula stem and that should get the bike close to its target along with the Lightweight tubs.
I'd be inclined to keep the Super Record crank set too if you can can achieve the target with it.

Thanks for all the pointers and thanks for Dado for raising the topic.
The customer is someone who loves his Dogma (not dogma 2, although he has one too!!)
We are fitting the Obermayer Wheels to give us almost 200grams but he does want to keep a Schwable tyre with some puncture protection in it so we are only getting 60grams in tyre weight.
For the rest of the diet we are replacing the MOST Talon bars with an Extra Light O/S Stem and Schmolke TLO O/S Handle bars.
He does also want to keep the full Campagnolo drive train so we cant do cranks.
I will let you know the result once it is all done
Talk some sense into that boy.. Lightweights, THM.. It's not rocket science
