CRC are quick. Got the levers this morning. with cable they weigh 60gram each. The Pauls claim 60 gram pair. So a good weight.

Will have to change my chain and cassette.

I really wanted these as the centre every time you change gear 8) But £200+ for shifters is way to much for me :(

Must buy ti bolts :D

I've been running the alloy lever version (TT500) of these on my fat bike for a few weeks now. It's great having the ability to change 5 or 6 gears at a time in one movement (try doing that with the latest XTR/X0), but I'm not happy with the position I have to put the shifters in to clear the master cylinder on my brake levers (Hope Race). I have about 45deg difference between the angle of brake lever and shifter; I'd prefer to have 10-20deg difference but that's not possible with my brake levers :cry: . Probably a non-issue if you run cable levers mind....
