Ok, I need a new casette, was going for a SRAM PG730 as there aren't many 7 speeds left to choose from - but how much does it weigh?

CRC say 302gms, Wiggle say 230gms I'd prefer the wiggle one at crc prices but they look the same to me. any ideas anyone?

oh yes. I have just drilled out a NOS Mavic wishbone shifter :twisted:

I'm going 1x8. I just need to get some cranks, a bunch of Ti bolts and a cassette sorted, everything else is coming out of the shed. I'm going to make some mech cages out of carbon sheet this week if I get time.

Si

I've just done a bit of research on the internet and realised that the pedals I want to use are 700g for the pair. Instantly killing the saving made elsewhere on the bike. Is there a prize for biggest failure of a weenie?

Finally built mine, have not weighed it but I'm aiming for heaviest bike or at least heaviest single speed :lol:

Photo's might follow if I can get a picture that reflects the true pink horror.
In artificial light in seems dull red, in natural light its ultra dark pink almost glowing with a slight fade pattern 8) Oh and heavily patina'd(battered) as per usual.

It does sport my by now signature ghost ring tensioning with a rather low 1.6:1 ratio but I do like a spinnier SS than most. Keeping canti braked for the sake of retro but as it'll be for my SS races it'll get a front disc later.
