Edit 2: My stiffener weighs 225g. Not great, not terrible. Still the difference between a Brooks and something lighter. I'll give it a try without the stiffener maybe.
Waxwing bag full of its usual items - spare tube, “pencil” bag (that I stick keys and wallet in when out), tool “roll” (with Park MT-1, tire levers, patch kit, Velcro, and happened to have an 8 piece Allen set in), old toe strap, and eye glass cleaners.

My bag has an internal ABS stiffener, and the Dockit decaileur has an internal metal plate.

Pedal wise I’m using Shimano PD-M540

Edit: I also swapped my B17 Special for a Cambium 17. 125g advertised difference.
