Thought I'd try something I haven't seen before. I have a pair of Crank Bros Acid 1s and like them on my AM bike for the bit more platform and I thought they were cooler than Candys back in 2007. The weight weenie in me saw the modifying potential when the plastic bits were lost on them.

to finish right they might get:
Ti short spindles
al nut
al sleeve
ceramic bearing
Ti spring
Could possibly get ti wings by modifying some egg beaters but rather not mutilate some fine beaters

Thanks

I forgot that the Candy 11 has Ti wings, they might fit perfect.
