It's been a while since I've been cycling. I just picked up a 2012 SuperSix 4 and am looking to shed some weight just for fun. I enjoy research and tinkering.
What I've found for my bike that the best cost/weight savings ratio on this bike are:
2. Seatpost clamp
3. Pedal Spindles
I already bought some bike wheel warehouse BSR Blue wheels that should come in at around 1350 grams compared to the Mavic Aksiums (1750) but I've already heard from a few much more experienced cyclists that they would be hesitant about the quality of them. I have yet to receive them.
I've had enough hobbies to know that sometimes when you modify things you really end up with quite a bit of a headache and am looking to avoid that if at all possible.
I have been looking at KCNC products, J&L products and though weight-wise they seem great, are they really reliable?
I have also been told that titanium skewers squeak.
If I go down the WW path am I looking for headaches?
Where would you guys start?
I am thinking that titanium spindles for the pedals is a safe bet.
