I spent $18, shipped to my door!

This is definitely a budget WW build!

That pic brings up a good point.... clamp to the mast cap? Is that the best spot?

That’s what Trek recommends. I’ve been clamping them like this for years.

Gonna try black spray paint on a spare piece first before painting the whole batch and sending it to my wheel builder. Image

The metal ends on your Berds look different from mine, a new design revision?

The threaded portion doesn't extend so high up, so I guess it's somewhat different. Your wheel build done?

Why not Black fabric dye, it should weigh less than paint and could be ezaly reapplied as needed.

Full carbon SMP. It is used and a couple years old but will give me a good idea what it's like instead of spending a boat load of money on something that might not work out. ImageImage

Does this saddle only actually weigh 68gr and are there any rider weight limits on that?
