Tune stubby arrived 5 minutes ago, so says UPS.com.
Expect pics and weight within 24 hours.

Tune Stubby arrived.
No weight yet, b/c my scale ran out of batteries :(

Feels very light, though, and seems well built too...

Huh. Looks painted.

Know what I would do? (Almost immediately, actually... heck: weigh it, then do the following)

-Sand blast the cap, remove all the paint.
-Hard anodize Type III in whatever color you choose.

It will then probably be a bit lighter if that is indeed paint.

Anyone know where to get the Woodman IT-Ti head from?
Is it not released for sale yet? Every link or store has none in stock.
I need a setback topper so rules out the Tune.

Or just buy it anodised instead?

OK, Tune Cappy = 73 grams...painted :roll:
Went on the Cento Uno, and I can give it a solid thumbs up.
No flexing or creaking, as was indeed the case with both my MCFK stubby.
Seems like a solid product.
And yes, I am a Tune distributor 8)

@CippoForLife
Would you suggest it for carbon saddle rails?
I also have a Cento1 also but I use a flite kit carbonio saddle.

The new Ritchey topper looks good. I wonder if there will be a setback version?

There will only be a setback version of 25mm.
I need a non of small setback version (now I have the 8mm version).
