Lightweight Cyclocross Bike: Nathan's Stigmata

I got this email from Nathan and a submission about his very cool bike:

Here is my cyclocross WW project for this season. Here is the build list:

Frame Santa Cruz Stigmata 1208
Rear derailleur hanger Santa Cruz 14
BB Guide Nylon bolt cut 0
Rear brake adjuster Shimano 4
Rear brake studs Alloy 8
Fork Alpha Q CX20 (475 uncut w/ race) 446
Headset Crank Bros Cobalt 1 1/8 67
Expander/Noodle CXW hanger 28
Headset Cap+ Bolt Carbon Ti 4
Water Cage Bolts Nylon 1
Spacer Carbon 10mm 4
Seatpost 3T Doric LTD 31.6 (154 uncut) 134
Saddle Arione 241
Seatclamp Woodman 11
Brakes TRP Euro Carbon w/SS yellow 219
Shifters Force (remove guts 30gr) 272

Cables Shift and Brake SRAM Flak Jacket 140
Rear Derailleur Force 178
Cranks Zipp 300 330

Chainrings SRAM 39 31
BB Crank Bros Cyan Ti 173
Pedals Shimano XTR M970 (325gr) Ti spindle 291
Chain KMC 254
Handlebars Easton SLX3 199

Tires Challenge Grifo XS 835

Cassette+ Lock Ring SRAM 11 - 26 164


It can still lose another 90 grams by removing the front shifter guts (30 grams), going to an Arione CX Kium saddle (40 grams) and Front cable hanger (22 grams). Any other suggestions?

I just want to say that this is the perfect example of what to send to Plus One Lap! A lot of photos and a very cool laid out table of parts and individual weights. Thanks Nathan!

pedals... eggbeaters drop an additional 30-100 grams depending on which model you switch to.
