A new entrant in the best-looking-bikes category: the new Merlin Extralite
from Competitive Cyclist. CC offers a weight calculator for a build, which suggests that with Ultegra Di2 the bike is 12.5 lbs before you add wheels. Unless they are leaving something else off, that suggests a sub-17 lb. metal bike is possible.
That is certainly a sharp frameset. Their weight calculator is suspect, (treats all frame sizes as the same weight), but with enough money, I bet you could even get it under 16, everything included.
