Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

If you find more errors please post it here: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=139062

After seeing the Giant show bike one item on my future "maybe" list was a Fibre Lyte inner cage (rear der.). For campy 10 they claim 6 grams - anyone know what the std alloy inner cage weighs.......maybe this will be a "looks only" upgrade.......

this is a looks only upgrade. it saved 2 grams over the stock alloy plate on my record carbon derailleur. the standard plate weighed 8.5gm, and 6.5 for the fibre lyte

2g off a 8.5g component is 23.5% weight saving! Just think how light your bike would be if you could do that to every component! he he! :D
