Weighed previously at 1792gm without derraileur hanger. Still for a £5 it'll take some beating.

think 20 lbs will be the threshold to greatness tho
if i get it below 20 lbs i'll be chuffed

confession time
did spend a great deal of someonelses time milling a whole 50 grams of a pair of pedals
i can use egg beaters at 100 odd grams ,but want to use flatties
so need to do some work there

i have however got all the bolts i need in stainless and equeal or less than titanium ones

need to do some serious work to get a stem thats light tho

Done some tyre weights, Twisters are a feathery 370 gm and the Dusters 500odd, the WCS Zmax is 500 ish too. Twister have absolutely no tread though and are a bit modern.

Dusters are retro, twisters sadly no. They are conti's btw. If I could get another ZMax WCS I'd be happy. My first dale came with Zmax's .
