So this is turning a little unconventional. Some of us need a little help on the hills, and for what i wanted to ride my old 50-34 11-28 setup wasn't cutting it. I originally had a lot of these parts on my Noah, but I think I've kind of given up on that project so all the parts were moved onto the supersix.

I pieced together this crankset with a quarq powermeter axs spider, red d1 crank arms, and a 38T oval wolf tooth chainring.

The quarq spider was a hefty 160, the wolf tooth 38T came in at 75g as advertised, crankarms were 335g, and the various bolts and hardware added up to about 26g - all told 596g for a 1x 38T oval crankset with power. Yeah a bit heavy I know... i'm not a PF BB fan, and PF30 has been a hassle on this bike. I originally had these heavy Rotor 3D cranks and had since upgraded to a Rotor UBB thread-together BB. For this (re)build I opted for a Wheels Manufacturing outboard thread together PF30 to DUB BB. not a bad little unit, installed pretty easy... EXCEPT.... it was 150g with ABEC3 bearings. May need to consider a lighter option in the future.

Force AXS Max 36T RD (320g), Force 12spd 10-36 (305g) .. I REALLY wish SRAM made a Red 10-36. Red AXS flattop chain with a few links removed, and waxed, came in at 225g.

So at this point, I've kinda got a weird sorta WW not-quite all road frankenbike. will post completed pics soon with final weight

So I'm on the fence as far as saddle choice.

I can keep the existing fizik antares vs evo R1, at 170g. However just recently i've noticed its causing a bit of numbness on climbs. Not sure if its an adjustment issue or I'm just getting old.

Or I have this Fizik Argo Adaptive.. its been comfy on long flat rides, haven't tried climbing with it. Worth the 25g premium? hmmm

Image

Or I do have this prologo NDR .. 160g. Need a bit more time to make up my mind on this one, except i think it won't match color wise anything on the bike, unless I switch the tires to GP5000 transparent

Any reason you didn't stick with 2x? A 50/34t setup with 11-32t would have gotten way more range and you could have just sold the SRAM bits and current Di2 parts to fund the necessary new RD. Hell, the new RD and chain are the only things you needed to get a larger cassette, so you could have kept those for a 20g penalty which is still almost 100g lighter than the SRAM 1x setup.

Quarq DUB w/ 50/34t Rings - 580g
9150 Shifters - 228g
9150 RD - 196g
9150 FD - 104g
Di2 wires/etc - 100g
XG1190 11-32t - 196g
Chain - 230g

Total 1634g

Your current setup totals to 1749g (including shifters).

I had the parts laying around for a 1x and wanted to give it a try. After a few rides I am seriously considering switching to a red 10-33 and going back to 2x 46/33 in the front if I can find a cheap Red or force FD. I figure the weight savings on the red 10-33 should compensate for the FD weight.

I wanted to make this bike for just spinning up long steep climbs which it does ok, but found myself shifting a lot more than usual and running out of gearing everytime I went over 26mph.

Work in progress!
