Canada EH !
For the ultimate weight weenie the French bike magazine Velovert publishes a special issue once a year where they list over 4000 components , everything from complete frames to Ti bolts are covered. They state the manufacturer's claimed weight and their measured weight for every component listed.

Sort of like the weight weenies bible at 300 pages !
