Bike weights - Mercier Corvus AL - 2012 and 2014

These measurements are taken on a japanese digital bathroom scale. These are scratch & dent bikes from www.bikelisland.com - the BD scratch & dent website (I had to add parts to complete each bike):

56" 2014 Mercier Corvus AL #13 - net $1045
30sp Ultegra 6700 gears, Kinesis 7005 DB AL + Carbon Fork Neon Orange color, sloping (compact) top tube
+ Shimano WH-500 (stock) wheels, 1884 grams
=== stuff I changed is below ===
+ Vittoria Rubino Pro Tires (came with $5 tires - knobby+kenda)
+ Ultegra 6700 brake calipers
+ 270gm Wellgo r104 silver/black road pedals + plastic clips/straps
= 22.0 lbs

The bikes have HEAVY seatposts (350gm Kalloy) and HEAVY saddles (WTB Speed Comp 369gm). These scratch and dent bikes had the worst possible pedals (wholesale $5?), seatpost (wholesale $8), and saddles ($15?), so I am no longer sure I got such a great deal. I expect the mega-exo bottom bracket to fail rather quickly ($15), and I am investing $60 per bike to lose 250 grams from the saddles & seatposts, I hope to recover some of my investment by selling off the leftover parts.
