I took this picture on my morning ride. I don't feel comfortable to tell what is the weight of my bike, its pretty bad for high end parts..
just started collecting parts for new build, a black Caad8 with internal Dura Ace DI2

Enjoy life, I do!

I just love my new bike. I use to have Cervelo R3, the SS feels much more comfortable and lovely handling, I don't like sensitive steering like the R3 have. The only con that I have with my SS is the weight, 7.5 kg in not light enough for this spec.

What size is your bike? It looks like you are already running a nice set of wheels. I am guessing they are tubbies?
If you absolutely have to make it lighter you could drop a few hundred grams with upgrades to your saddle stem, bars and seatpost. However it looks like you have SRM crankset so you are giving away a few hundred grams there.
The fact is these bikes are just great all rounders so whilst you know it weighs more than you'd like (mine too!) when you are riding, it doesn't seem to matter all that much.

It's 56. I know how to lose weight, don't feel like spending big money for few grams. Love this bike!
