Everything counts

When people talk about loosing weight on a bike many say that 5g isn’t much, better to look at the big weights. But how many wants to change their frame for a Crumpton or Spin? Or how many wants to spend 3000€ on a wheelset that isn’t aero?

I like to save on the small parts to save big. Every gram counts.

Like a crank spider for example for my S-Works crankset. A regular in alu weights 61g:

But changing for an older (the news got a lot more material) carbon spider saves a bit, like 16g:

16g that you don’t think about or notice but it’s still there and it just makes the bike lighter, not worse in any way.🙂

So right arm before:
