At the article of LightWeights I saw the following picture.
Armstrong's mountain machine with Lightweights on the TdF 2002

What kind of cassette is that? Is it blue? Or is it just the oil?

There aluminum with aluminum spacers. The nice thing about them is you can replace individual cogs, so when they wear out you don't have to buy a new cassette.

If properly assembled and with regualr mantainance (cleaning) also Marchisio Cassettes are very good. They're single aluminium cogs, with plastic specers, fitted on a Campy / Shimano adapter. So, if you change your freewheel you only have to buy new adapters, and not the entire cassette.

Bye, Benz.
