I'd put the bar ends that come with Deda Traforato in table too, these weight 4.5g unmodified - 25g less then your current choice.

Spent the afternoon fitting various parts to the Evo.

Pedals, rear mech, front mech and redid the cabling so that's all hunky dory now.

Trying to pick up a Antares R1 which come in at 160g apparently and also on the hunt for some red calipers if I can pick some up at a discount.

Managed to miss out on an Antares that went for £30 on eBay annoyingly

Went to fit my Hylix seatpost today, only for them to have sent one round clamp and one oval. Not a massive problem as I've ordered the clamp to fit 7x9 rails, but hey ho.

Picture added, as what good is a thread without pics?

Long time no speak all!

I've recently put Sram Red eTap onto the bike (Literally as of about 2 days ago). It's heavier than the force that it replaced, but it's pretty neat to use!

I'm thinking the next most obvious changes to lose weight is to change the crankset and the wheels to something lighter.

Anybody got recommendations for the cranks? I must admit, i find knowing what to get that's gonna fit all quite confusing lol. I do want to keep power on the bike though. I'm thinking Sram Red 11 speed cranks and then a p2m spider?

I do also have a sram red rear caliper to put on, but i need to calm down before attempting it again as it was driving me mad trying to get it to work lol

I weighed it yesterday, and came up as 7.4kg. Turns out my spreadsheet is out by about 400g :noidea:

Yeah, it's -

Red AXS 12 speed shifters
Red 11 speed front derailleur
Red 11 speed A2 rear derailleur
Sram Red XG 1190

They released a firmware update so the shifters are backwards compatible with 11 speed

Picked up a cheap Sram Red 22 50/34 crankset yesterday, just waiting for it to arrive and then fit.

Means i'm going to lose power, but i'm probs going to spring for some power pedals.

Thinking the Favero Assiomas. Will add about 85g over the Keos, but i can't not have power on the bike :roll:

Picked up a red crank relatively cheaply, so got that fitted today.

Couldn't believe the weight difference between the FSA Powerbox that was on there and the new cranks. Infact, i didn't know what was in the box when the postlady handed me it as i didn't think it would be as light lol. Sadly no scale porn for you all, i don't actually have any working scales annoyingly!

Next up be some Favero Assiomas and maybe some hyper wheels when the money tree grows a bit more

How long was the spindle on those cranks? I had to remove the pre-load adjuster when I fitted one to my S6, PF30a.

There’s lighter rings available for those cranks, Praxis for example or Cannondale Mk V rings if you can find them.
Also use latex tubes if you’re not already, lighter, smoother and faster so long as you check your pressures before riding.
Spacers and cone at 100g seems high too. Are you using the later expander in the steerer?

Red cranks will fit BB30 and BB30A if you take off the preload adjuster btw. Add stages Carbon arm for a really light PM option.

Ermm, not 100% sure on the exact length as i didn't measure them sadly.

I had to remove the 5mm spacer behind the pre-load adjuster so now it's just crank arm, pre-load and BB on the nds. No spacers at all on the drive side.

Seems to fit together nice and snugly, though I do need to get the bearings replaced in the BB as on my test rides it seems i've disturbed something and now they'e a tad noisy/grumbly :evil:
