28h crest rims 760 grams

28h dt swiss 350 sp hub 130 grams
front brake system 350 grams
barro race geax 2.0 tires 980 grams

hollow 9s chain for single, 76 links 175 grams

xx1 crankset, remove the spider with xx1 ring, install spiderless bling ring, sub 500 grams
pf30 bb 90 grams

obviously this is going to be fixed gear, magic gear, with just the front brake, no rear brake.  Still at 14 lbs. sans pedals here. I'm probably forgetting something.

  1. You forgot to factor in the facial reconstruction when your bike snaps and you smash up your face. Probably get titanium jaw with ceramic bearings to save grams.
