the tyres are 440 grams and a large volume so no brainer there

still running heavy tubes tho so another 200 or so grams to be shed

and about 100 mm of seatpost

bang on 8 kgs at the moment

Have you been hanging around the roadie for sale section? That's an obscene weight for a saddle. Have you tried sitting on it yet or do you have the fear?

A real benchmark weight wise- love the brakes too. Mind you, it's a weight/ looks combo that counts :lol: :twisted:
