Where would be the best place to start to reduce the weight of my stock Z85? The wheels seem pretty light already. Any ideas on the weight of RSL3 wheels?

That'd be the last place to save weight.

It's got a 105 crank (725g). An Ultegra crank is 687g. A whopping 38g difference for $200. Or a Dura Ace is 683g. A whopping 42g difference for $400.

The tires are 320 g. A set of Conti GP4000's would save 190g. 4x more savings than a crank and far cheaper. Plus a better ride and better rolling resistance.
