Can't you just swap the left to the right & vice versa...so the opening on the pad holder is facing forward?

Cut 1cm off the end of the bars and used lighter bar tape, that's it finished finally.

If you start with a sub 800gram frame it's pretty easy to get down this level

The Ghisallo was one of the early light frames before every normal carbon frame got this light.

Right? This is perplexing.

You shouldn't have problem running Reynold blue on Ciamillo pads.
try to swap it, it doens't look right on a nice bike you have with that brake pads. :beerchug:

Thanks for that, the weight is back up slightly, couldn't get used to the Tririg pedals without float and the Saevid Saddle at 24cm was a bit short.
Went back to the trusty Time Xpresso 12 pedals and the AX Lightness Leaf saddle

The pad holder openings have to face backwards to stop the pads from being ejected, everytime you brake, the curvature issue has been fixed by doing this.
