I'll try to let you know when it is availdable.

And $130 for lower/upper cradle is simply said ''a lot'' :lol: The idea was to make such upgrade for a few interested users on other WW forum, also so it costs a lot less. Since the demand is there for such parts, the guy decided to make some more which will be ready soon :)

I definitely want a set, maybe 2.....business is booming ;) btw...what kind of weight reduction are we looking at here?.....are we gonna be able drop about 25g-30g or so? I'm sure it's not as much as the kcnc swap...or is it?

I am using the Masterpiece with original cradle and bolts with New Ultimate upper-support/wings (which are almost identical to the KCNC ones).
No problem during the last 20 months on a Toupe with ti-rails.

Count me in too. It's not Daedalus weight but not the cost either.

I am also interested one set to my Masterpiece. Allready using Ti bolts so this uppgrade should be very nice also.
Hope that price is lower than that 130$ for set wich is IMO also way too much :P

Nothing new and even I don't know anything else so we all must be patient I guess.
