Picked up Fair Wheel Kalloy Uno Stealth Stem w/ Ti bolts, 110mm@-17 degrees (108.5g) and two sets of JRC ceramic pulley wheels (8.8g per wheel--0.8g heavier than the stock DA9000 ones).

Silca Premio tyre levers - these are touted as being ideal for tubeless on carbon rims. Expensive for a tyre lever but I'll give them a go. Oh, and this pair 37g.

Could you post a review when you have used it? I am sure many here are interested (like me).

Sure, will do. Then we can see if Silca's mission to make commonplace tools reeaaaally expensive is worthwhile or not.

@djcharlou, love the Panzerwagen suit, will you ever wear it?

No i'm more a climber profile (1m80 63kg) so it's a bit on the large side. + it's signed.
The other one I have is the German champion's edition from 2014 and it's much smaller, hard to believe it's for the same guy.

Some new Lake 237s. Unfortunately they are 100g heavier than my S-work 6s.
Weight including S-Work insoles and cleats. ImageImage

Its going to be a really long wait!

Getting it in a Disc version though. Cant imagine they will ever sell many of these as a disc version so I reckon I will pretty much never ever see another matching bike

Bought 2 pairs of these Chinese knock offs after meeting someone that bought a pair of original ones. He broke one during a crash and replaced it with one of these. He cannot even tell which is the original one now!!
So far these are a "WINNER"!!!!! I tried 9 different types of bottles on them and they all fit snug and nice enough for me. No road test yet, but the test was with empty bottles. Full bottles should be even better. Wishing they were half the weight, but the ones I ordered that were cannot fit ANY bottle at all! Life............ :noidea:

Finally, a place to organize all my bike related and other tools. Had them spread all over in multiple smaller boxes and could hardly ever find anything where needed.

Couple upgrades to the Crockett for some upcoming dirt events. Easton ea70ax bars, like the Easton drop and reach plus these have a nice flair. P6 hiflex to hopefully take the edge off.
