    Sub 10kg Anthem X

    Hi all

    I'm looking to build a sub 10kg (22lb) Anthem X. Below are the components I'm looking to put onto the frame. Currently standing at 9.8kg with XT SPD pedals based on claimed weight.

    Did not go with XX1 as the difference in claim weight of 70g did not justify the $220 difference in price to me.

    Any comments appreciated. Especially on lighter components I can get with similar cost/quality.

    Frame Anthem 2011 Small w/ Fox RP2 2430 (actual weight)
    Fork 2013 SID 120mm RCT3 15mm TA 1472
    Headset Integrated Headset 108 (actual weight)
    Spacer Carbon 4pc 14 (actual weight)
    Stem Kalloy Uno 9 70mm 7deg 100
    Crank/32T/GXP X01 700
    Rear Shifter X01 91
    Rear Dee X01 252
    Cassette X01 275
    Chain X01 252
    Brake F XTR M985 225
    Brake R XTR M985 225
    Rotor F Ashima Ai2 160mm 60
    Rotor R Ashima Ai2 160mm 60
    Handlebar Cobalt 11 700mm Riser 170
    Seatpost Thomson Masterpiece 30.9mm 192

    Ditch the crappy rotors, even if they are light. You're running XTR brakes because they work well, not because of the weight. Do them justice.

    FSA PolyCarbonate headset spacers 1g a piece.
    Procraft Superlite grips 19g or (want little more comfy) Posh Nitrile foam/rubber grips 22g
    Climax SP02X seatpost 135g $80
    Mt Zoom clamp 5.5g

    Run tubeless and lose 1/4 pound off the SRAM crank with a RaceFace Next SL 1x or S Works 1x crankset.
