SWAPPING PART III & V

It turns out that the frame takes a 27.0 seatpost AND not a 27.2

So I used the Deda Seatpost for another bike
And bought a Alloy Black Humpert seatpost


PRICE= €13,65 (posted = €2,3 less than Deda post)
WEIGHT= 296g (6g heavier than Deda but also 350mm so Ill probably cut it a few inches)

Image FOR Image


Also the bars (26mm) are to big for the 3ttt 84 stem (25.8mm) and I wanted bars with cable grooves so Im changing the 3ttt competizione bars for 3TTT Curva Podium 2S Canal Drop Handlebars from Planet X


PRICE= £14.99 or ca €18,50 (posted) (so + €8,5)
WEIGHT= claimed weight of 280g (47g less than Competizione Bars)

Image FOR Image


-----------------------------------------------------------------------

BUDGET: 44,88 EURO LEFT
WEIGHT: 0,196 KG LEFT
