Great. I need that!

Explain me how you did, Tillquist. I always found those Campa TT bar end shifters a bit too heavy for my new TT build.

All you need, is this upgrade parts......... 8)

The orginale Campagnolo parts is made of steel. I have made this part of aluminium and then they are black anodized. Weight save 28gr.

what you need is a simple 3D CAD program and a good machinist!

You could also save quite a bit by pulling those heavy rubber covers off the levers. :)

I'm far from being an experienced machinist, but I find the small parts very tricky to machine...usually holding them is the biggest challange.

It's not easy to take them off. I would love to do so; the Dura-Ace bar end shifters look a lot more minimalistic than the Record ones (how light are the Shimano ones in fact?). It looks cleaner and I wonder how much weight it can save. Are you planning to do ths, Tillquist?

This is what the former Liberty Seguros team did.

Well, about the rubbers, I think I will have to give it a try on one of my TT builds to know the exact weight difference. I will let you know!
