Manufacturer claimed weight is usually without padals, cages and size small. Some manufacturers can be way off that, not necessarily Italians.

That's completely up to you.
I would say: with pedals, cages and computer, but without bottles, saddle bag, pump etc.

in place, that is to say those items that may be removed during the event."

So as btompkins pointed out, if you need to screw it on, you need to include it in the weight - pedals, bottle cages, etc. I personally exclude the computer.

The later weight is the way I ride it and therefore it is the important weight.
I could make my bike quite alot lighter by removing bolts, computor, cages e.t.c. I don't ride it that way though.
I ignore manufacters weights as with all statisitcs it will depend on the details. Unless numbers that cannot be compared.
I agree with djconnel here in his no cages version.
