Hi all, Did up my Cannondale ages ago with really expensive kit but now I'm taking a different direction. I'd like to lighten the bike without spending loads of cash. So below is the spec so far. I'm looking for bargains in the business and not the most expensive light components, much more of a challenge this!
The parts that have been changed already were carefully thought out so I don't want to change them again. Not looking to drop 20 grams for £50 either
So what are the bargains out there? If you have anything to sell send me a PM! I'm in London so kit that I can easily get in the UK preferred.
