You can save more grams by swapping the barrel nut too but it requires some Dremel work because the readily available titanium barrel nut is 1mm too wide.ImageImageImage
Where can you buy that Ti nut?
I bought it here: https://a.aliexpress.com/_mNU7fMi
I bought the M6-10X14MM one and then had to Dremel it down to 13mm width to make it fit.

Thanks Aryeh

Used the one from Ti-Parts that comes with the SL8 Seatpost kit, and some filing down, to make an another massive 1.9g saving!

Up for any tips or tricks or recommendations to change to get this into the 6.2Kg territory

I'm running a BB Infinite BB, it's 70g if I remember correctly. That'll save you around 20g.
You can also go with the new Red E1 crankarms, they are 30g lighter than D1.
You can change the Front Derailleur and Rear Derailleur bolts to alloy to save a bunch of grams. (Front Derailleur is M4x10 Flathead, and RD is M5x10)
You could probably also save 100g on the handlebars with the Avian Canary or Darimo Nexum Drag.

Cheers, if the C-Bear BB ever goes awry then will go for BBinfinite.

• Sprayed the 3D Printed TI Computer Mount in Matt Black, to match the bars
• Moved back from a CS OSPW to the Standard DA cage, the main thing I noticed is that shifting is 'crisper' now. Also saved 26.9G - Bike weight is now 6.34Kg

In other news, also got some new decals to make the frame 'pop' a bit more - Satin Chrome decals (I get that Satin Chrome is an oxymoron) - Love them, really suit the frame well in my view.

Looks great. How did you find applying the new decals? Keen to change mine on my RTP, but worried about messing it up.

Cheers, Decals are from speedydecal.com, as long as you take your time, they are easy to install. They only overlap the original decals by 1mm or so, so just mark out the extremes of the original, and use that as the start point.

Could you take a closer shot of the decals?

If you aren't already- Use shimano lockrings on the galfer rotors instead of the Galfer lockrings that come with the rotors to save more weight.

I appreciate the pics. I believe you said you overlayed the decals on top of the originals? If so, I wanted to see how close the edges were.

Ahh, I see, you can kind of see it on the R letter on the first pic, a small indent where the original letter is, either way, it comes out about 1mm bigger allround, over the original.
