We had a hill climb last weekend so I figured it would be a good time to do a little pruning that i had been planning.

Ultegra STI shifters to DA STI 9spd 88g
HG-93 chain to PC-89R hollow pin 44g
2 cheap bottle cages to profile carbon 24g
steel aheadset cap bolt to Al 5g

total 161g :lol:

The next mourning i threw on my race wheels and filled a bottle about half full with sports drink which i figured would be about right for a 45 minute effort. About half way up the climb i finished the bottle and threw it to one of my friends who was leap-frogging us with her car. I finished 8th place which I was pleased with considering the early season (Alaska) and the guys that beat me are either very fit or climbing specialists. After i reached the top and swallowed my lung back down I went to load my bike back on the car and i noticed one little thing i missed. I left my seat bag on. :shock: Tube, patch kit, allens, chain tool, and CO2--635g

Oh well, at least it was fun!
