Cyclocross Parts

I've got 3 sets of 50mm deep, 23mm wide, 380 gram carbon tubular rims left to sell.  $500 for a set.  It seems more people are buying the 1200 gram $380 stan's tubeless wheelset with all the new tubeless cross tire options.  The xg tnt is making it difficult for me to even consider gluing up tires for this season.

I'm making a few changes to my cyclocross setup this year, last year it was 14.5 lbs with pedals.

ritchey classic to zipp carbon.  236 to 209, saves 27grams.
eggbeater 11 from eggbeater 3/ti.  211 to 172, saves 39 grams.
ritchey 260 alloy stem from bontrager carbon.  154 to 114, saves 39 grams.
drilling out the stem for front cable stop, saves 35 grams.
rear seatpost clamp to woodman deathgrip, 23 to 12, saves 9 grams.
fizik antares carbon to selle italia kit carbonio, 154 to 125, saves 29 grams.
red 2012 crank from red 2011.  575 to 555, 20 grams.
left s900 lever, saves 20 grams.
red rear derailleur from rival, 197 to 147, 50 grams.
xg 11-26 cassette from 1070, 300  to 255. 45 gram.

313 grams. total.

If I go with the chinese frame arriving in 3 weeks, I could save 1240/490 down to 1150/420, saves 160 grams.

Total saved after frame, 473, over a pound.  13.5 lbs. with pedals is exciting.
