At least you will save the weight of the Specialized alloy shim which makes the weight penalty a bit less.don't know how many grams the shim weights, but probably 10-15g. Syntace has a smaller 1 1/8" To 1" Stem Adapter with a claimed weight of 13g, but this one doesn't have any weight saving holes in the sides so the weight is probaly about the same as for the larger Specialized shim with holes in the sides: http://www.syntace.com/index.cfm?pid=3&pk=523
Claimed weight for the Specialized S-WORKS Pro-Set Stem is 150 g including the alloy shim.
How close are the real weights to Specialized's claimed weights?
