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:

More about my weighsaving on Project16 tomorrow 😀

Specialized Crux Elite ready for Swedens CX Championships

Specialized Crux 2016 got thru axles. 12×100 in front and 12×135 with special SCS (Short ChainStay) rear. A standard that made it almost impossible to find wheels except Roval CLX40 that hasn’t been available yet.

Me and the owner of Tune Sverige solved it all with Tune King and Kong hubs and some grinding. So ready for the Nationals this saturday are my bike:
