@freepk, that’s a respectable weight for a disc frame! Makes me want to build one up!

- Factor LS Disc
- Specialized Aethos Disc

Thanks ) Yes, this is very light frameset. I hope it will be comfortable for riding.
I use only regular components in my build.

Btw, DuraAce FC-R9200 is so heavy (680g 50/34 170 wo PM), it makes useless group weight savings versus SRAM AXS with integrated PM spider.

Low hanging fruit: don't use Supacaz. Easily 50g to gain

Thanks, i just like how does Supacaz looks ) Ordered Lizard Skin DSP V2 too.

Supacaz Sticky Kush weight is about 85 with plugs. Plugs looks heavy.

Good luck with the C59. Find it surprisingly similar in shape and feel to the SLR carbonio. Mine came in at 62g

@Turrifik, thanks, i actually has Gelu E1 on my BMC Timemachine Road, and just want to test this C59 saddle.

Bigest question for me - Crankset and powermeter. I just dont know wich cranks, chainrings and powermeter to choose.

Rotor ALDHU Carbon and some chainrings for tests on order. I hope i can find good combibation. If not, just leave DuraAce chainrings with Rotor cranks and spider PM.

@texano999, congrats! Aethos is outstanding frameset. I just finished my build like on photo above with 5.7kg with pedals, pm, bottle cages and garmin mount.
But i dont like how FD shifts, to many overshifts(then chain stands over teeths). FC-R9200 cranks 50/34 is about 680 gramm, with PM pedals it weight 1kg versus 580+165 in my setup.
