Had to ram some delrin into the thru rod to prevent colapsing, woorked perfectly!
Here are some of the pedals, weigh about 32gm each, again forgot to take the pics but ill get there eventually...
Milled the axle so i could bore out the allan key inside to drop the axle weight down, the milled the 14mm spanner key onto the outside.
Delrin bushing is simply held on by the bolt internally
Here are some of the tuned sram red i did as well...
Unfortunately the delrin mount bolt (AFC BIKES) snapped and then cracked my chainstay whilst racing in the weekend, the frame is off getting fixed but my confidence in a product like this is gone
Mounted, i broke the other delrin limitation screw and have now swapped it for some pretty red aluminium bolts, looks much better.
Here are some of the barrel adjusters i built, delrin in white or black, super light.
the ones on my bike are lighter than this (under 2gms) becasue the addict frame needed the nuts to have a square edge to fit the frame, this also means that they stay in place and you dont need two hands to use them! YAY!
Some shots of the first saddle that i built, its a mould of a Specialized Romin...
5 layers of 3k, nice and stiff. i wont use thisone on my bike because i made an oppsie later on and yeah... ill post photos of the one i have used later on....
Enjoy some of the bits i have built, i have some more projects on the horizon too...
Here are some shots of the aerolite pedals i built...
Here are some barrel adjuster i also built, they weigh less than 2 grams a pair now since i square edged the nut to fit the frame...
Here is my tuned SRAM RED... have since broken the AFC mount bolt pictured and it led to a cracked frame, but it off getting fixed now so no worries....
And finally the saddle i built, but wont use (im not happy with it) ill upload pics of my bettert one later
The AFC mount bolt i had in the rear derailleur broke mid race and took a gouge out of the chain-stay, so i sent it off to the local composites guy, he repaired it. then i took it home, and 17 hours of paint scraping and sanding later (55gms worth!!! ) i had a bare frame. One of my good buddies cut me the decals you see here, then it got a splash of clear-coat and my baby was back on the road!
Anyway here is the build list, the bike on its ALLOY WHEELS weighs in at 5082.95gm, although this is when its in super weenie mode. I usually ride it at 5200gm (RED Cassette and different pedals) I'm looking to go under 5000gm on an alloy wheel-set, which shouldn't be to hard. only 80gms to go! And before you ask, i have a job, i pay for all my work and parts, but yes i still live with mum and dad...
