Gavia Tourmalet 50 cm frame (942 g)
Gavia Tourmalet Fork (328 g)
Zipp 303 rear and Zipp 202 front tubulars (both with CeramicSpeed bearings)
10-speed Recon 11-23 (86 g)
Veloflex Extreme tyres
Zipp titanium QR (53 g)
[I’ve just gotten Token’s at 23 g]
KMC chain
Dura Ace 7900 rear gear and shifters
Dura Ace 7900 compact crank, 170 mm
Dura Ace 7800 front gear
AX seat-bolt (4 g)
[and it’s strong, I’m 80 kg]
AX bottle cage (9 g)
OMNI Racer Ti Ceramic BB (86 g)
[much lighter than Hope, CS and Rotor BBs]
3T Ergosum LTD
3T ARX 110 mm – 18 degrees
[much heavier than the UNO stem, but more aero]
AX Lightness Sprint seat on Mighty Carbon
KCNC CB 1 brakes
Look Keo Blade Carbon Tit
[heavier than SpeedPlay, but without the extra weight of the plates and bolts]
Deda Elementi tape (uncut 39 g incl end caps)
[close to half the weight of Lizzard Skins and Sram]

Entire bike: 5720 grams
(the frame and fork are quite heavy, and ‘cheap’, but stiff)
By changing QR; brakes, wheels and stem, I’ll shave off close to 400 grams.

Saddle looks too far forward for a road bike.

How do you like the 202/303 combo? I am considering this setup and would appreciate a review.
Just dig in and climb it!!!
