SMP composit Italian green 250mm X 130mm.[IMG]https://uploads.tapatalk-
I wish SMP would modernise their production method, similar to what Specialized, Fabric and now Giant and some Fizik models are doing. Far tidier result. Wrapping the cover over foam and stapling/gluing it underneath is so dated now it's not even funny.

Haha old world Italian stuff made in Italy. This model has no foam but much to my surprise it is comfortable. There is always the full carbon model for modern looks. If they modernize these saddles they will be extremely expensive I fear.

Campagnolo Athena pedals for my Master x-light.
I had forgot how heavy those pedals were (885gr in this case!)

As I lost 5Kg allready this January and aiming to get rid of an additional 2-3Kg in the near future I needed to drastically re-do my cycling wardrobe.
This week I sold a huge bag loaded with Castelli/Sportful/Nalini/B-Twin/etc. gear in "bigger" sizes and based upon the Attaquer size charts the L bibs should fit my "new body" better with a tighter fit so the chamois does not move around so to say.
With the money from the sale I purchased the following kits 8) 8)

Aerofly 2 and lupina 7x9 Matt have arrived..
6.86kg with garmin 820.

Just under 6.8 without.

Recent changes.. Lighter pedal, heavier tyres, lighter saddle, heavier bars.. About the same weight after these four changes.. But more functional and comfortable. ImageImageImage
