.. what are my options???

Having a bit of a search today, it looks like XTR/Dura-Ace is about as good as it gets.

Anyone know if there's an even more lightweight Ti or ceramic version??

guru's - step forward and enlighten me..

Dura-Ace are stupidly light and totally serviceable I am running 1 with an AC crank and 1 with an XTR crankset. I am not a dyed in the wool Shimano-ite so when I say the Dura-Ace is hard to beat it is not just jingoistic Shimano flag waving :wink: :D

Cheers fella,

Any Idea of the weight of one of those? I've seen figures of 220g banded around, but would like cold hard proof...

And....all the one's I've seen have been Italian thread... :(
