    Just because.

    This is stupid. I need to loose 4 oz or 113.4 grams...just because. Set a goal of a 17.x lb bike and I'm almost there...18lbs 4 oz ready to ride. Let the ideas flow.

    Build list:

    2013 Specialized Stumpy SS
    Spec Chisel fork
    1400 gm carbon wheels
    XO crank w/ bling ring
    KMC X10SL chain
    Surly 20t/22t cog
    M785 XT brakes
    Conti X-King Protection Tubeless (Have a set of racesport RK's that would get me there in the summer, but it is wet out now)
    Spec Foam grips
    Spec Bar Ends (this would also get me there, but it is a do not delete)
    S-Works seat post
    Spec Phenom Cr-Mo (Easily replaceable)
    SL-K Flat bar (~640mm width)
    Spec stem
    Egg beaters SL
    (2) Spec Z-Cages
    Avid Rotors 160/140 G2

    What's the Spec Phenom Cr-Mo weigh? San marco aspide carbon fx is 134g and comfy.

    G2 rotors are fairly heavy. Perhaps get a set of the new ashima ai2s.

    G2s are 111 each, Ai2s are 66 each, so there's -90g for $48.

    Spec Chisel fork - weighs?
    BB?
    XTR brakes
    S-Works seat post - weighs?
    Spec Phenom Cr-Mo - If you like the shape upgrade to a lighter rail model.
    SL-K Flat bar - weighs?
    Spec stem - probably heavy or is it a rebranded Syntace?
    Egg beaters SL - Get Elevens.
    Are your WB cages light? Blackburn Slick are 23 grams and cost 12 dollars. I haven't broken mine or dropped a bottle.

    XTR brakes...not sure on the weight savings, but with all the brake problems I've had I'll keep these for now
    S-Works seat post - weighs? 200gms
    Spec Phenom Cr-Mo - If you like the shape upgrade to a lighter rail model. Probably go that route or put a romin on it
    SL-K Flat bar - weighs? 200 ish
    Spec stem - probably heavy or is it a rebranded Syntace? Not sure, it does not have the adjustable shim 150ish...weight
    Egg beaters SL - Get Elevens. Holy cow, didn't know they left 100gms on the table
    Are your WB cages light? Blackburn Slick are 23 grams and cost 12 dollars. I haven't broken mine or dropped a bottle.They are 40ish gms each...I like the the side load due to the limited space of the frame to grab a bottle...most secure I've every used as well.
    Didn't know the Ashimimas would save that much, especially for the $! I'll do than and swap the saddle for something lighter. Don't spend that much time in it anyway lol. The egg beaters are starting to show their age too, good excuse to upgrade! Thanks all for the ideas.

    Lots of great ideas here. What's nice is that you can hit your target in several ways.

    You can hit it in one shot by changing saddles - an eBay carbon one runs ~110g and assuming your Phenom is in the 230g range, you can hit your goal for $50.

    If you buy the Elevens keep your receipt. They have a 3 or 5 year warranty on them. Chances are you'll break them before the warranty runs out so keep that receipt.

    Sees to me that there is a lighter cog out there than a Surly. Second the rotors..try the Alligator Serration from Pricepoint. Probably could get carbon cages too.

    Exactly!

    Btw, met the goal...got the stumpy ss down to 17.x tonight w the ai2 rotors and a toupe saddle...first ride on the morning. Thisis becoming an addiction! Pretty sure i can get it into the low 17s high 16s without alot more cash outlay.

    Thanks all for the help... I'll post a pick of it tomorrow.

    Rotors, cages, stem, and saddle should get you the most bang for the buck

    Maybe then you will need another 4oz to you can hit 16.xx
