How much battery life do you have or more importantly is that 16GB enough? cause it might take a while. :smartass: :lol:

A few light parts; ZIPP ti skewers and Tune Universal bottle cages. The Chorus cassette is for the spare bike... and something to make the bike shine...

Assorted Al and Ti bits from Toronto Cycles
* Al M5 for cable guide under BB (thanks mdeth1313 for the idea on how to save another few g's)
* Replacement Ti bolts for mcfk stubby (oops, I stripped one of the heads)

Schmolke bar, 26.0 x 40cm c/c
* Weighing in at 160g and set to replace my Kestrel EMS/Pro bar ... my first Kestrel bar weighed 173g and was replaced by another at 180g (thanks jonjones13)

Lizard Skins bar tape
* Race DSP tape (posted earlier and unfortunately only 1-5g's less than the thicker Race tape) ... to be used modestly on my new bar

BTP shifter clamps
* Shifter clamps to save ~20g

iLink Brake cables
* Replacing Jagwire cables, savings unknown

I got sick of waiting for the Morpheus, and this came my way at a hot price. The weight with Ceramic BB was 580gr on the head. The brakes are for my spare bike. They weighted in at 196gr with pads.

The 800 is too big and I don't need maps. Plus the 500 is about 40 grams lighter. :shock:

Just arrived - Profile Designs Cobra Drop bar, crabon fibre'.

Only CF bar I could find that had enough 31.8mm center section to let me mount clip on aerobars. 265g claimed weight, no scale here yet.

I know it's probably pretty pedestrian to the lot here, but still gives me a chubby!
