Just a couple of quick clips - looks like frame weight is under 700 g, fork is 322 g uncut (both lighter than my NP). Had some concerns about the frame's weight limit but after doing some research and reaching out to a good amount of people (and getting a great price), I decided to go for it.
More to come...
I already have a student in the engineering class at the high school where I teach working up plugs for the derailleur cable holes for 3D printing (I'll be using etap). The ones supplied are metal, I want to see if I can lose a gram or two there for free.

And you can call me Macktastik Honey Pete Kicks, thank you.
I have a feeling I'm forgetting something on that list (besides the aforementioned). 11.4 lbs seems awfully light with clinchers. If you see it please let me know...
Here's the build list:

Might have forgotten the seatpost clamp - I have to order a new one. The one from my old frame (10.5 g) won't fit and Wilier cheaped out with a heavy, 18 g one. That's 18 after I replaced the bolt with a ti one.
The difference in weight is definitely that mine isn't an etap frame. I can't complain about that when considering the price I paid.
Eh, when I look at some of the bikes posted with no saddle bag, no pump, no spare tube, no computer, tools, etc, I call BS. My last bike I didn't include the weight of the saddle bag/tailight either and I thought that one was getting closer to 13 lbs.
I also ride with clinchers as I often ride solo and do long distances, especially in the summer. It's more convenient. Right now I have my farsport/extralite wheels on there as the front wheel of my FSE/Carbon-Ti set is waiting to be rebuilt, that will also add about 40-50 g to the mix. I'm still shocked the bike stayed under 12 lbs. I guess going from the clavicula classic to the se helped, as well as the frame dropping over 50g, even the fork dropped 10 + grams.
I'm going to enjoy riding this one.
