It may seem light but there are plenty of places that he went wrong. The riser bar add almost 20-60 grams of a light cut down flat bar. He kept the third chainring on. (If he wanted to keep that on and lose weight switch to a 11-23 Dura-Ace cassette) The X.O rear is lighter. The wheelset could be a lot lighter. He has about an inch of excess steerer tube and spacers. Eggbeaters are lighter than speedplay. The valve caps look cool but add weight at a piviotal place.
