As proud as i am of my custom stem, it is time to move on.  It was a good job done with something that started out very heavy.  In the end, it was just decent.

I’m going to go with the short and shallow FSA SLK carbon bars.  Not exactly light but the ergonomics seem great.  I’m also going to use a wcs stem with my custom garmin mount and Ti bolts.

The CrMO speedplays need a little rest so I upgraded to X1’s with my custom aluminum bowties.  At 130 grams for the pair they aren’t as light as the Aerolites I'm struggling with but they work beautifully.

BOOYAH!  After weeks of working on individual components everything is finally together and the beast is ready to roam again in leaner and meaner form.

These levers are hot out of the oven but not just any oven. I had to use George Foreman oven because i wanted to cut the fat and that’s just what I did.  These are almost as light as can be with an optimized internal ratchet, slimmed and trimmed levers, and great custom hoods!  So far they feel like they *POP* in and out of gears more so than they did before but I'm not yet sure what modification attributes to that.  The hood feels fine, nice and grippy!  Read more about it HERE

The rear derailleur was probably the component that set the tone for the way I tuned the rest of the pieces in this setup.  Every angle has been rounded down, every unnecessary panel carved out, and every  curve was formed softly.  Overall the weight savings was good but not dramatic.  More on it HERE

There is also the Sram Red front derailleur that I salvaged from a previous project.  It now has the aesthetics of the rear derailleur and the weight to rival any weight weenie fd.  More on it HERE

The actual weight that came up on my scale is slightly heavier than the predicted weight but it also had the Gamin 500 unit on it.
