Bit grubby could do with a clean up
Not used much but have been sitting in the garage for ages
Are the CNC versions with all the titanium bits
Start at £70 posted
4th - just in case!
another cycling item going up in price !
Welp, I wasn't the lucky winner in this case 🤷🏽♂️
I don't suppose anyone else here was either?
I am the lucky winner. Trust me it is a curse as much as a blessing - my dormant weight weenie tendencies have just been activated. I am thinking only in grams now. Why am I ripping all the bar tape off my bikes? Why do I have this insatiable urge to drill holes in everything?
Congrats 2nd dibs, it's all good, grams is grams, I'm only shaving little bits off the bike I wanted these for as well
I caught myself shopping for lightweight cables yesterday and had a word with myself.
What bike are you shaving?
On my 653 project these Planet X brakes are replacing Chorus skeleton brakes - roughly a 100-110g saving.
It's a little Giant road bike (not mine) that has some old tiagra brakes currently, just on the lookout for something lighter and preferably black. Still looking 🕵️♂️ something like these would be ideal!
i have a pair of those, possibly not the cnc model, but should be 250 grams with pads.
edit : under 200 grams with pads ! i might have to think again about selling them
Reynolds 653? Have you drilled it yet?
The Jagwire light weight cables are probably the best cables on the market, so crack on.
@Acliff - I'm going to try and drill it today actually... but I'll only be attacking the BB cups seized in place.
@Dogs - Yeah I actually found a set of Jagwire KEB-SL in a box and they are slightly more lightweight than normal outers, so that satisfied me. I also shelled out £11 for some Alligator gear outer. After browsing throughsets of iLinks and Aican cables priced at £50 this seemed like a good compromise.
@psg1ben If it makes you feel better these are a pain in the arse to set up
They do also seem to pop up on eBay for £55-75.
Yup, I've had a alert on
would love some of these pink ones which went for a bargain £35
Oh nice, they'd actually suit the bike I'm working on pretty well
