Here you go http://www.yokozunausa.com/alvacapr.html . The perfect finishing touch for you weight weenies. Oh wait, sorry, I meant fashion weenies. Now you can add an accessory with no purpose but to match your bar tape and saddle.

A true Weight Weenie doesn't use a cap. Too much weight! :beerchug:

Adding weight to a rotating mass will cause a disavantage of 4% in your power output of roughly 10watts for climbs over 5% of slope which means losing 30 seconds in a hill over 5 kms, depending on the air's humidity obviously, without counting how many burritos you ate the evening before.

Guilty. But I run an inch less bar tape on each side to make up for it. ;-)

I run ano cable end caps too...
