I'm trying to get my 30.5 lb GT Sensor down to around 25-26 lbs for around $600. Are these good choices so far? Thanks! I'm new to this, so some of these weight savings estimates could be off, but most are from weights I found on the internet.

component cost grams weight savings
Ritchey WCS Ergo $6.99 36 120g
Easton EA50 31.8 $9.99 160 90g
Truvativ T20 Bars $20.00 160 120g
Road Saddle $0.00 220 145g
Easton EA 70 post $20.00 260 150g

Total Total Total
$56.98 836 625g


Eggbeater pedals $30.00 256 50g
DT Swiss wheels 350 1614 410g
Vulpine TCS Tires $80 1020 649g

From a dollars per gram perspective almost everything makes sense. Except the tires. Is it really worth going with a semi-slick tire to save the grams ? You should be able to find some more capable tires that are 600-650g each.

I agree about the tires, ditch these and get yourself some IKON or Aspens :thumbsup:
