    Urge to upgrade Z2

    I recently purchased a 2011 Z2 and love the bike. One of the things I liked about it was that it seemed well spec'ed - it has a (seems to me) good light set of all around wheels and other nice bits (DA Di2 rocks). Only thing I've changed so far is the seat - can't fault Felt for that, everyone's butt is different.Is there any (relatively) low hanging fruit left in terms of weight loss or other functionality to make a great bike even better? Be interesting to know what part(s) were on Felt's list that didn't make the cut.

    It's a pretty light bike out the box. You could probably go to DA 7900 C24 wheels, or some custom wheels and shave maybe 300g (change to latex tubes too). Lighter tires are also an option. That'd be about USD$900 or so.

    The bars, stem and seatpost are already at the "really light" end of the spectrum (sub 200g bars, sub 100g stem) so not much to change there.

    Other than that, you'd probably only lose some more weight with a Cannondale SI SL crankset, which is real expensive.
