:D :D 8) Stem caps ingenious. What did the cable hanger start life as?


I was looking at the levers I got again and reckon they may be able to match yours. Could really do with a mill mind you.

Weighed some bottom brackets tonight :oops: found a un71 at 251gm. I thought a fancy GT one I have would be the lightest but alas no. I also have a race face ti one which I'm sure is lighter again but its reserved for the SAB and I'm not going to start pruckin other bits.

i found a un54 at 240 grams , the rest were near or over 300 g
but i think the bearings are grumbly ,so might have to look for another b/b


the cable hanger started life as a billet of 6082 t6
the seat clamp also came from the same billet

can you tell what the stem cap started as ?

I dont care if you buy stuff, I was merely pointing out with my budget that I cant and thus it'll be difficult for me to compete on an even playing field.
This does not mean I'm not going to give a weenie build a go its just I have to think make do and mend. :wink:
