Quite simply, that bike is so damn impressive I dont know what else to say.

Though how did you tune your derailleurs?


I replaced the clamp, cage, pivot and limit screws on the front derailleur with alloy ones. The rear I replaced the limit screws and the rear plate with a carbon Fiberlyle plate. All purchased from Madcow at www.fairwheelbikes.com You usually need to call or email him for the small parts.

Thanks Juan - I'm guessing theres only small weight savings there, but hey, everything counts. Is there anything different in the way the Fiberlyte "feels" compared to the standard cage?

The Fiberlyte save two grams and like you said "everything counts". It's not a easy project to get a size 59 1344 gram frame built into a 12.76 lb bike. I could be low 11's with a Ghisallo frame and the same parts kit. :twisted:

2 gram saving...I think I'll just invest in a file :) Bit expensive for my taste

That said, I dont have goals for my bike like you do, so congratulations

I have the Fiberlyte rear cage plate on a '03 Chorus RD, and if anything I'd say it seems to stiffen the unit slightly and aids in crisper shifting.

I have to M2 cages on the opal. Goin' strong for almost a year now. Pulled them off the Colnago when I switched over and they were in good shape. The screws that it comes with are flathead screwdriver type and the do eat up my bottles pretty good, but.............they sure are light. I pull them off every once in a while when them frame is getting a good cleaning and they don't have any damage on them like a previous post.
