what do you think about making a carbon spring that doubles as an aero cover for some EEbrakes?
Yes I made it too thick, and that's why I made the springs then so thin (they were wider). I know what you mean and it's for sure the right way. I'll see how this will turn out (regarding the stiffness) and will then make some new prototypes.
Most probably it would be possible, but I didn't yet had those brakes in my hands. If I could get some then I could probably find a way how to make an aero cover for them. But unfortunately I don't know anybody in Slovenia who would have these brakes.

I finally made some progress on the saddle rails and hopefully I'll be able to make them in February, I'll for sure let you know
Otherwise here just one quick photo of my bike, 6.16kg as it is:
Could change the ALU bar and stem to save some more weight, also the bottle cages and tires,..but at this moment it is like I want! Ready for 2013
