I figured a thread to aggregate the sub-6kg builds would be nice. Probably should be a thread for sub-5kg since those are true WW builds while the sub-6kg crowd is more or less just crossing the lines of a WW build (in my opinion).

I'll go first:

My attempt at a WW Colnago C59 @ 5.70kg

Hoping to get my R3 under 6k, I'm right on the edge at 6290 but soon I should be dropping some grams!

And that's with Power2Max Type S power meter and BBInfinte bottom bracket, so those two things right there added 166g over the stock spider and bottom bracket

Well I don't run tubs so that's a couple hundred grams right here as well. Also not running any exotic parts, zipp bars, rotor crank and 1350g Alu clinchers.

My FM066 @ 5.98kg:

Image

Switching from Contis to SWorks got me back above 6000g though, currently it's sitting @ 6.09kg and looks like this:

Image

I have absolutely no idea where I could save some 100g without spending a fortune or losing functionality... :(

I want aero bars & wheels, fast clinchers, oval chainrings, 11-28 cassette, padded saddle, steel pedal spindles, normal cable housing. Suggestions?

Some stunning builds. I can't wait for someone to build a frame using SRAM eTap and the frame only has a cable run for the rear brake. This would be exciting for me to see.

I am thinking of Sram Red eTap on this, when I can get hold of the parts, at which point I will strip off the paint on the frame, remove cable stops etc.
