I've already swapped out the RS10s for RS80s and lighter tyres on my 2011 CAAD10 105. This saved about 700g. I'm now looking at the C3 bars, seat post and prologo kappa saddle as places to reduce the weight of my bike. I'm about 70kg and 6' 4", so looking at my bike as a place to reduce weight without spending a fortune.
It has pretty much this spec, but 105 brakes
A bit of research and some weighing show me the following:
C3 Bar: approx 320g
The Selle Royal Lookin saddle is a very unique and surprisingly well made perch for the money but one attempting to be all things to most riders, which risks an identity crisis.
In this age of gender specific design, I was surprised to discover it described as Unisex, especially given the long 278mm nose - and although 159mm width might appeal to some ladies, in my book it's one better suited to mountain biking/rough stuff touring males.
Help! I've been using a Fizik Antares Versus for over a year with no real issues. However, past few weeks - months, it has been causing me problems. I've got what feels like one (right side) 'bruised' sit bone and pressure where a chap doesn't need is getting to borderline painful at times. The bikes are fitted and saddle is set to that measurement and dead level. I've LEJOG in late July and need to make a change now. I'd very much like to stick with Fizik. Any advice guys and gals?
