    Smile Scalpel 2012 diet program.

    First off a picture of what I'm working with:

    (Different brakes, rotors and rear tire in this picture)

    Second the current weight:


    Third a list of parts currently on the bike, sadly I only know the weight of some of the parts:

    2012 Cannondale Scalpel HiMod frame.
    2011 Lefty 100mm XLR, P321 bolt and cap.
    Drivetrain is a complete XX1.
    Nukeproof TI/Magnesium platformpedals and xpedo TI XMF08TT SPDs. What I use depends on where I'm going to ride.

    San Marco Aspide (Carbon rails, 140g)
    FSA seatpost
    FSA Handlebar
    Cannondale lockon grips

    Arundel bottlegage w/TI screws (about 40g)

    Magura MT8 with Storm SL rotors.
    The wheels is a custom build, P321 hubs, 'regular' spokes, aluminum nipples, crest rims and nobby nic snakeskins. Running them tubeless.
    Hope rear skewer (134 grams!)

    Did I forget anything?

    Third my goals:
    Spending as little as possible, but still enough to shed some weight here and there.

    I'm well over my big investments into this bike as I built it frame the frame from the ground up. I love it to bits and tinkering on it is quite enjoyable so if I can find some stuff to make it even more awesome that'd be great

    Will probably get a 650b wheelset some time in the future.

    These will still be used, all depends on the terrain I'm going to.

    The cheapest, easiest, fastest, best bang for your dollar way to lose weight is to dump the lock-on grips and go for a set of foam grips. You can lose over 100 grams easy, probably more like 150 grams in this case.

    I like the ESI foam grips myself. Cheap, super light, comfortable, and they come in a multitude of colors.

    Are you sure your scale is working properly?

    Xpedo XMF08TT pedals are 215g.

    They came out as 189 on two different scales, granted both could ofcourse be off.
