Supersonic tubes and a super sonic front tire.. Easy 150-200g
Don't ride in the gutter and avoid shinny shit on the road and the supersonic will treat you like a king.
When I first got my Mavic R-SYS SLR's running the Mavic Yksion tires, I had a horrible time with punctures, 3 punctures in the first 3 rides. Having since changed to what I had been riding, Continental Grandprix 4000S, I haven't had a flat since. Sounds like punctures are probably more to do with the tires themselves vs the tubes? How dos the super sonic front tire handle punctures?
Banish all the steel bolts on the frame..
Am I looking to replace with Ti? Alloy? Where would I purchase replacements? I'm assuming that they are fairly standard size (sorry unfamiliar with the standards here)
Brakes only thing worth replacing 9000 series DA brakes with is ee brakes but they are 600 odd bones
DA9000 brakes seem to be the gold standard from a performance perspective, but really beefy. Do the eebrakes compare from a performance perspective? e.g. stopping power and modulation. I do a lot of climbing and long descending so breaking power is important to me.
replace that beefy k-edge garmin mount with a raceware direct or sram one and lose about 20g.
I always thought the k-edge garmin mount was light, until I looked at the weights! Looks like its more like 10g, k-edge is 30g while barfly 2.0 is 17g. Sound about right?
