Congrats on the SL- great bike!

IMHO, just ride it a couple hundred miles before throwing more money down to try and shave it down some neglible weight.

If your cash is burning a hole in the pocket go for a wheel or tire upgrade that you can feel a difference when riding. An RX kit should have come with some good quality, lightweight, post, stem, bars already.

If you want it light, go with wheels first. Rotational weight is the weight that counts most. Next, cranks. Then cassette. All the stuff is new though man. If you want it really light, check out the weight weenie forum, there is a ton of stuff on there.

My Advice:just ride it till something breaks then upgrade it with something nicer. It's a nice bike, I built it :)

racing can be a little different. I'd recommend a speedometer so you can monitor your average speed. They're a cool thing to have on a bike.

I like the Cat eye strada wireless. It costs a little more than a wired one, but no wires in my opinion looks really a lot cleaner and better.
