The genuine point of this thread was to see, and appreciate, those in the WW community who still do the true weenie builds and tunes.
About five to seven years ago when weightweenies was in its early years we had to be inventive tuning with aluminium bolts, ti bolts, sanding this and that and so on. In those days few manufacturers really cared about how much their stuff weighed.
A few years later they started caring (we made them do so) and weights were listed, often quite optimistic ones so there was still plenty of room for some tuning.
Lately, lets say over the past three years or thereabouts, all kinds of finely crafted stuff have become available. Stuff that's so light and occasionally not even that expensive, that it is often easier and wiser just to buy those little bits, install them and be done with it.
Lots of shops carry alu and ti bolts nowadays. It didn't used to be like that. Handcrafted carbon seatclamps, quick releases weighing less than 40g, sub 1000g frames, saddle you can blow away, etc., etc?
Pretty common now but it was way different some years ago.
Nowadays we come to the point that whenever you try to modify an already light part you may quite likely screw it up or at best make it unreliable.
I think it was Keith Bontrager who once said: "Light, strong, cheap: pick two"...
So, yes, it's not that surprising that the response is a bit underwhelming really but by all means keep up the good work and let no one discourage you. Especially not me.
