Its got supersonic inner tubes already thanks, I have Tune Ti skewers at sub 30G a set--- but not in Gold only Red and they are £68 a set! On the seat clamp Lightnings and Xizangs are a funny size, about 30.9 external diameter, so I prefer the deptht of the Hope QR as the Allen key don't give enough suport as this bike gets ridden. May send off to the US for a Salsa in Gold. The 27.2 posts are on the slack side more like a 27.3 and very few makers do a 27.4. I hope to get a lighter wheelset and either a middleburn duo chain or another Tune fast foot set soon. The stem will be repalced with a Pace integrated steerer/ stem very soon too.

Lightnings were produced in 1997 and 1998. One of those years they did actually spec a 27.4 seat post but they were a pretty snug fit. If you're building a weight weenie though it's tough to come by real light 27.4 posts. I think I have one and it's ~260g.
