Went with a Colnago C68 instead

Just FYI I did get some 3D printed spacers to match the Ceramic Speed spacer. It doesnt match the Vision Metron 5D ACR spacer holes and shape
Can you please clarify? You went with Farsports F1 bars on the Colnago C68 where the Farsports provided spacer did not match the Vision Metron 5D ACR spacer holes?

well, that's a shame. i was thinking that the Deda Superbox was pretty heavy so there would be gains available there
Yes, you're right and I am looking to upgrade it.
It's on the list along with seat post and saddle. I think all these three components will shave of around 400 grams but also like a 1000€. But those components will outlive the frame and tag along to the next bike :)
hey man, I built mine up with the pro vibe sl cockpit, Im pretty sure the retail is less than a onepiece cockpit (any one piece cockpit from big brands ) and it only comes in at 275 grams (stem and handlebar), do give them a look, my finished bike is ard 7 kilos with pedal and computer mount and it isn't too expensive either ( No darimo or mcfl or thm, just normal components )

Wow! How did you get it down to 7,0 kg without expensive components? Mine is just under 7,6 at the momen (spreadsheet is at 7,4) and I have Ultegra drivetrain and MCFK wheels and decent components other than that.

Easiest way to loose weight is to not run tubeless , run clincher with 19 / 24 gram tpu tubes, semi lightweight saddle and post, and you're almost there

Current weights. I have somewhere between 50-100 grams I haven't been able to find yet, maybe the handlebars are a bit heavier because I never got to weigh them. Grease, tape, brake fluid and stuff is also in the "difference" I guess.

The frame was weighed as it came. And as you can see it's not a very lightweight bike. I'm about to change the stem for a longer one, and I will probaly go with a Extralite and shave off 118 grams and the Look pedals are worn and will be replace by a pair of Xpedo pedals weighing 70 grams less.

I'd like to have a Cannondale Supersix Evo Lab71 or a Yonex Carbonex instead and using the Time as my back-up.

Did not go with the F1S. I went with a Metron

The problem is the CeramicSpeed base spacer does not match the holes with the Vision spacers. It's all internal routing and needed to get some 3D printed ones to match the holes for the CS

DM me if you need photos. Dont want to threadjack

Wow, that’s an amazing bike. I was considering a SuperSix, but this just looks stunning. And I am not racing, so I might just get the AdH. Thanks for sharing!

Made some changes today:

First I just changed the stem from a 100mm Deda Superbox to a Bianchi Reparro Corse Aero 130mm.

Forgot to weigh a little spacer and the carbon top cap.
20230913_111035.jpg
Without the plastic semi integration system. Total weight is 202 grams.

I think I will go with another stem, either 110 or 120. Thinking about the Extralite Hyperstem but would like to have one that could do internal routing. Any suggestions?
My handlebars aren't capable to do internal cable routing so an ICR stem would not make anything tidier right now.

And then I retired my worn pedals:

And on goes my first Xpedo pedals. They will probably feel great compared to my slippery Look (great pedals when bot worn).

Love these bikes, so tempted but the weight is a slight drawback. Having recently moved from an SL7 to a rim Look 785, I've realised that light weight bikes may not be faster but they feel great. I'm hoping sub 7.5kg will be easy to achieve with a medium black frame, that should do me.

I think the black is lighter. And I saw someone on facebook who had a red one in Large around 6,5 kg without pedals I think. Don't know how but he claimed to have special paint without the small Time logos.
