New Gelu E3 saddle arrived today.
It is 61g instead of the quoted 55g.
I will be testing it to potentially replace my 80g Berk Lupina that I've ridden for the last few years.Image
I have the E3 saddle on two bikes. I've also had, and broken, quite a lot of Berk Lupinas. Comfort is personal of course, but there is no comparison between the two in terms of quality IMO. The Gelu is streets ahead of the Berk. I find the Gelu very comfortable, but it has noticeably less flex than the Lupina.
I've only ridden it on the trainer so far. It feels comfortable but a bit more slippery than the Lupina.

New computer mount and rotor have arrived.
The rotor is 10g lighter than Galfer. The computer mount is 12g lighter than the one I was using previously.
Bike is now at 6.19kg according to Kern and 6.175 according to my fish scale. I assume the Kern is correct.
I switched from the Challenge tires to the GP5000TT and they came in quite about 40g heavier than the Challenge tires for the pair, but I rode them outside for the first time yesterday and I got multiple PRs and they feel noticeably faster so I will keep them on despite the weight penalty.

Do you mind sharing a pic with the TT mounted so I get an idea on how the look? Black vs white walls
Besides how do they measure vs the RS?
Thanks

The Challenge tires were 27mm and I don't remember what they measured. The 28mm TTs measure 31.5mm.Image

They do blow up quite a bit
I wonder if a 25F 28R would be the way to go

I think it is. I ordered a 25mm for the front. The rims are 30mm ext. so I'm hoping a 25mm, assuming it inflates to 27-28mm will work better with the 105 rule, while also saving 40g. (My 28mm tires came in at 260g each).

@aryeh are you using an 300mm seatpost? if so, which is the maximum seat height on your 52 frame?

That’s quite a saving
You have 24IW on your Hyper50, don’t you?
If so I’m wondering if with mine which are 21IW I might try both and see how they come up
