.....

Seatpost : Canyon (70g)
....
i really like the look of this bike, consistent and restricted to the essential.

May i ask: The quoted seatpost weight above is correct?

Thank you, regards,
Thank you, I just went of the website description, annoyingly I didn't weigh it when assembling it.

I see. But even if it were 10% heavier, it still would be, truism, extremely low weight. Including seatpost, the Ultimate CFR should be among the lightest framesets available.

Yes, it's possibly a bit suspect, but my Darimo T1 27.2 x 300 Seatpost is 76.3g, so not out of the question. I haven't weight the frame or forks either, so just going by my (possibly not very accurate) scales for the overall weight.

Fitted a few more Oil Slick Ti screws from TiParts Titanium, and a front Caliper mount, saving of 10g for the front Caliper screws and mount, and 6g on the rear Caliper screws

Nice! Can you keep up an oversight about the weight gained (and how)?

I know these are quite deviseive, but I like the look of them and the argument about the added benefit to the chain articulation/route makes sense to me, plus did I say I just like how it looks.

Cycling ceramic Oversize cage, it's actually 16g heavier, so between this and the previous ti bolts and brake mount there is no loss or gain in overall weight than stock.

Easy to install (good installation video on their site) nicely made and gearshifts are really good.

Sorry, not sure I understand? Haven't added any weight to this, everything so far (other than the oversize cage) has reduced by a few grams.

Fitted 6 new Oil slick Ti bolts to replace the ones on the handle bars (2 each side)/Garmin mount, 10g saved overall, so pretty good.

Got some Oil slick custom bar ends made up by Lucendi, really match all the Ti bolts really well.

When they were all removed and weighed together, that was the difference, I didnt take photos at the time, the screws for the Garmin mount I suspect was the biggest difference.
