More weenie savings today. Ti bolt for seat pin saves 6g and aerozine(very nice BTW) chainring bolts save 17g. The chainring bolts have a 5mm allen key fastening on the back and 4mm on the front to get away from those slipping bolts or peg spanners. Also got 3 unweighable!(though they are meant to be 1.6g) cable adjusters. Waiting for some scales which measure .00 of a gram so will drop them on those.

Why ?

Its just another trellis framed Marin, there are absolutely loads of those, very common. There was me thinking RobMac was a man of singular taste and yet he buys the Ford Mondeo of full suss bikes :roll:





Only kidding, there is good reason those trellis framed Marins were popular, they were bloody good :wink:

Just ordered a £16 Bonty Jones XR 29x1.8 for the Haro's erse - looks like it'll be around 7p per gram saved, best yet!
