kevo, do you know the original weight of the front DR ? FWIW the Shimano basement bottom FDR for triple on my Bikes Direct assembly is 110g. It is xtra now, a potential sacrifice victim
Merciful poodle, please be kind here
Can you please describe the removal operation. Dremel, just lightly shave off exterior areas away from the pivot points ?
My FDR has aluminum upper cammed or moving parts and the ferric guide lower part. My crude guess is that the lower steel part weighs more than the entire upper parts combined. Did you shave the guide shoe on your DA FDR ? It doesn't look like it, or you polished it very well
