Today I ordered/won the final parts for the roadie, not content with using any old rubbish I bought some jagwire racer cables which will have powercordz gear fitted and some xpedo pedals which will shave a whopping 155g. Spreadsheet total is 7080g which is 15.6lbs, I have some trimming of fork/chain/cables to do and a wee bit of derraileur tuning but I don't think I'll hit the 14.XX. Its amazing how hard it gets down at the nitty gritty. There are a few easy changes but at the sacrifice of aesthetics/comfort. Still if I hit the 14.XX I have the bare bones idea of a 1000g wheelset which would take me into the 13lb territory :)


you going to divulge the cost to weight ratio as per ZZ's spreadsheet method- sounds like an expensive build.

Not the most intuitive of spreadsheets but you get the idea. Not complete either. Cables were £24 and uncut weigh 195g pedals are 195g too and were £50. Shifter weight also includes gear cables which are around 30g+.

Probably spent more than I should but I reckon lb for £ you couldn't get something off the shelf that is lighter. I reckon I could get into the 13lb bracket sub £2K, which is nice.

I wouldn't spend that much on a bike unless it had an engine in which case I wouldn't be worried about weight :lol:
