Prendy, I'm doing fine. Just back from Nice
Went out every day for a few hours climbing around.
The bike is 4 kilos ( clinchers) single chaining 53 x 28. I never used the 28 . Mostly in the 19,21,24
I will be putting on a thm clav I.just picked up , the sisl is fine.but i may as well drop another 100 or so grams

Just to say, because some posters can't climb on a 53 does not mean I can't
I find it very easy to spin and never caused me any issues. We all ride the way that is best for us. Both my bikes are now single chain ring.
I have added about a stone of muscle to my physique and so far it has not had any effect on my climbing. Hope you like the direction my bike has gone.
I permanent marker the tune housing.it needs the odd touch up but works ok.
I have just tune a rival wi fli in s way no one had tried. If it works ok I will do the same to a red . It drops a lot of weight. The mech on the guru weighs 70 grms. Not bad a?
. Cheers

Brilliant man, I'll drop a line sometime. After some more research may have figured a way to get those Tune housing into color... theoretically any color. It involves chemicals though, which I just ordered. Better living through chemistry I suppose. :twisted:

I love the Tsubasa Cycles seatpost/saddle combo made by Ed :thumbup: A true work of art. Are you going the dentist way with the Clavicula SE crank?

Yes!! This is what it's all about - lengths not to add mass!

What are the specs on the Tune tubing: ID/OD, is this PTFE material? It can't be that exotic...

I think it is PTFE, or a PVC variant. I've ordered some MEK ("Clear Cleaner" works just as well) and petroleum dye (black) to test out coloring, I should know by next week when the dye finally arrives.

If it works would you be sweet with some sent your way to do and send back?

If it works I'll write up a little DIY/How To on the Tune housing thread, the components are easy-ish to acquire.

I think it might be PEEK tubing, solvent resistant if so!
