    Cables, housings & tiewraps Cables & Housing: Jagwire 100g (estimate)
    Chainstay protector Lizardskin Jumbo 15g

    Total weight 10.579kg

    I know the wheels are heavy and was looking at Fulcrum Red Metal Zeros I will probably change the tyres to Continental Mountain King Supersonic or maybe Nobby Nics when I get the new wheels partly for weight savings but also because there will be just too much red going on with the RM0's. This will get me to ~9.7kg.
