I'm also looking for carbon inner & outer XTR 970 med. cages.
Fibre Lyte only does the inner cage.

fiberlyte said they could make the outer cage if you really needed it.

Just to update this thread, you can purchase the outer cage for the m970 xtr long cage in carbon (9 grams). Originally this nobu tuned derailleur weighed in at 160 grams. Pretty sweet so I want to keep it running at that weight.

nice work, as already pointed out, the weight can be dropped by lighter jockey wheels.

these ones are the lightest for not too much money - you can go lighter with ceramic bearings and CF wheels but would be looking at 4x the price.
