    You have a large frame mine is medium, this would be the main difference.
    Little things like grips maybe. Mine are ESI foam yours are lock on. ESI's are 50 grams a pair.
    Flite saddle it 220 grams WTB Vigo if it is the same as my original is around 270.
    The Stans Crest wheelset is 1420 grams and I am running light tyres tubeless.
    All the little things add up plus the frame and wheels so it makes a big difference in the end.
    If you are on a large frame you are probably over 6 foot tall so you have the strength to push it. In the end it is about fitness anyway the weight in general is not such a big factor.

    Yep you're probably right (about fitness) although I'm not particularly a strong rider. Thanks for your input.
