I like to make a lot of the accessories I use on the bike. I've made saddle tool rolls, cycling caps etc.

I needed a new belt as I lost quite a bit of weight after training and racing hard this past road season. I ended up having some spare carbon headset spacers laying around and some climbing webbing. Perfect combo for the Weight Weenie belt!

It looks light, but is it aero??

Very cool design.

Vertically compliant? :) Great idea, might do something like that some time. Mine will be heavier as i only have alu/steel spacers to spare...

Thanks for the comments all.

Obligatory Weight Weenie scale shots..... haha. Seriously though, I wasn't aiming to make a WW belt, but this thing actually saved a bit of weight. Not that I think as much about weights on my commuter bikes (which is when I wear this belt):

If you decide to sell these, do post it on the WW forum! I like it a lot!

Thanks for all the feedback! I'd be happy to make more and sell these to people who are interested. I love the thought of contributing to the WW community in some way even if it's just a belt and not with incredible handmade custom saddle/seatpost combos (which I drool over on this site).

I was thinking of starting an Etsy page so I could make them to order. Anyone else interested?
