WILL ANYONE BUY THEM? I've got the protoypes finished and they are sweet. Weight savings of 12g, and pretty much good forever. Only bad news is the smallest quantity that I can make them is in a set of 20, or about $900. So... If I'm gonna make these I need to know if people will buy them. 900 is a lot for such a small bike part. Just to get them going I'll sell them only slightly above cost, about $60 a pair. If I can get 20 people to buy then they will become a reality. Any input much appreciated. If I get enough interest in them I'll put them on ebay. Thanks for your help!

Well no one even responded, the Ti model is dead. I'm bringing my protoype 7075 hard anodized model to Interbike instead. Much less money involved, and good wear properties. Weight savings with 7075 screws 26g. Anyone interested in this?

I hate to burst your bubble, but BTP in germany has been selling these for some time now, and there is an importer already in the USA.

I know, but BTP's are not hard anodized, mine would last signicantly longer, and besides, they would be less expensive since there is no over seas shipping.

Good luck, and I hope you are successful. Realistically, a product this simple shouldn't be that expensive.
