Dude, lose 5 extra grams and cut the steerer tube on your fork and lose the spacers on top...just a thought...other than that great job.

You can find them on their website http://www.cycle-dynamics.com/.
Just send an e-mail to order them.
You can save another 100 gram by changing the BB into a FRM Ti and with Tune carbon / carbon-aramid bottle cages

My cranks are Octa link, not compatable, besides it would save only 35g, not 100, plus not as stiff. The Tune cages suck, you can only use special bottles, I'm going with IRD 16G carbon.
