HYlix 27.2 seatpost also. 160g-180g for £20-£30

I'm taken myself with Fabric saddles, I have the pro carbon at 175g and its very strong, its taken far more abuse than other carbon saddles that I've broken. Prologo, Specialized ETC.
Is it this one?

Yeah, or they also do a setback version. I had one on my supersix and it’s a great lightweight post for next to no money!!

+1 on the Hylix seatposts:

Edit - I should add that after nearly 3 years there have been no issues with this original post and I now have another 2 on different bikes, also with no issues - mix of round and oval rails including a Berk Lupina.

Ok so finally got round to ordering some upgrades.

Sram Force Shifters
Sram Force Front Mech
Sram Force Rear Mech
Deda Traforato bartape
Hylix 27.2 seatpost
Look Keo Blade Carbon pedals
GP4000II's

Should knock a bit of weight off :)

You just missed a dea, on wiggle: sram red 22 shifters for £69 each, 70% off or something stupid. They have deals like that fairly frequently it seems! Might be worth keeping an eye open if you ever want to upgrade again .

Yes, you're right! :(

Ah well - Like you say, i'll keep an eye out. The commute has rival, so could bung the force ones on if I ever see the red ones on sale :)

Just note the 2016-2019 SuperSix Evos require a 25.4mm seatpost, not a 27.2mm.

Thank you :)

I think mine may be an outlier - Has a Cannondale C3, 6061 Alloy, 27.2x350mm one fitted to it at the moment.

I did originally order a 25.4mm one by mistake but it didn't fit, so had to send it back :p

Speaking of seatposts - can the 7*7 railed Hylix posts take 7*9 carbon railed saddles?

A saddle change will drop a chunk of grams.

I’m afraid not, I sanded the rails slightly in my old saddle to make it fit but obviously that’s not ideal. I have the oval rail Hylix post on my CAAD12 with a new carbon saddle and the fit is great.

Damn!

Thanks for the reply :)

Any recommendations for saddles that are similar to the Fabric line but light? :)

I was happily riding Fabric Scoop Shallow, then tried Line Shallow as well - to my rear end they felt about the same. They were both ti rail versions. Then I went full WW and got a Berk Lupina padded in 150mm. Even more comfortable than the Fabrics and many many grams lighter!

The Lupina's do look really good, and stupidly light!

May have to keep an eye out and see if they're ever on sale :) At least the 85kg weight limit is a bit of motiviation to not eat loads :p

Haaa I see, it's not an outlier then, it's the previous generation Evo but that was still sold as an entry level once they introduced the redesigned Evo. Sorry, I had forgot about those. :thumbup:

Sram Red casette ordered - Got a slight discount on eBay.

My old mans also giving me his old Sram Red crankset as he's swapping his out. I'll be without a power meter, but it's going to knock a hefty chunk of weight off! May eventually add an Ngeco PM onto it eventually.

Going to make a start on moving parts accross on Sunday :)

This is what i estimate the weight will be once i get all the parts swapped over. Sure there will be something i'm missing!
