You could go Nokon's with the Power Cordz but the I-Links minis for shifting are damn light.

As for the shifter pods going, you should be able to get the shifter under 200g for the pair. I used to run XTR before I switch to SRAM but I had removed the pods and covered the hole with a decal (carbon like circle) and used black aluminum bolts and I think they were 196g per pair.

Hi,

I didn't mean it was not a cool bike anymore. It's just all the weenie parts haven't made it better, aesthetically speaking.
It's most likely a far better bike in terms of performance. You did a great job in making something unique, and I praise you for that.

About the shifter pods. In my m770 shifter, there was a little plate inside the pod to cover up the hole when the display is removed. I'm not fully up to date which models also have this feature. I'd say, remove them and have a look. You have come this far with real WW parts and the gear pods really add little function on a bike. They add weight and mess up the clean look on the bars.

Thank you very much for your answers.
I'm working now on which shifter cables i will get to replace the stock ones. Mini i link alligator housings with powercortz cables inside are pretty tempting as long as they work well together.

Also dura ace front derailleur (66gr) instead of shimano xtr 970 (125 gr), gain=60 grams. The bad thing regarding the weight is that soon i'll have to change the token alloy cassette (102 gr) with a new one and i don't think that it's gonna be an aluminum one again due to quick wear out.I'm thinking abour sram red xg 1090 powerdome 23-11 (135 gr according to sram)which may add about 30 grams to the total weight burt seems to be real good. Does anybody have any comments to make about the specific casette?

Front derailleur (xtr) has already been replaced by a much lighter dura ace 7900. Here are some photos:

Why not XTR triggers? Aren't they lighter?

Great bike. What was the original BB model and do you know the weight of the frame? I am thinking of doing a similar project but there are 100's of BB variations and I can't find anything on frame weight.
