Sometimes I save some money on bike parts and buy cheaper things. I would have dreamt about a seatpost and stem from AX-Lightness which is my favourite weightweenie brand but it’s too expensive for me. But with same research at a bit lower price I got Engage which was AX-Lightness Asienproduced brand. It’s not existing anymore but still it’s possible to find some parts. Like a Torque stem:
90mm and it came with lighter bolts 🙂
Mounted it together with my new expander. On my Allez I use an Extralite Ultrastar expander and Extralite topcap, probably the lightest combo but it also costs a bit and the top cap isn’t the best looking. So for 2016 I’m using the genius Cannondale expander which is pretty light to be as good as it is 😀
28g lighter than the original one. Great weight saving.
Mounted and set up together with my Engage Revit seatpost from my Allez:
(will change the tires) and will cut the fork a little more as I now know how to set up the bike.
Biggest question is, should I use Specialized S-Works bottle cages or is there something lighter and as good as them? Black or White cages?
