Always interested in the next project.
Currently into 650b and 29" Adventure / Cross / Touring setups.

I got a set of Vaude Aquas. Pretty similar and very little use.
I have a set of black/silver ones with 4 mounting bolts and some live left on the pads. Pretty good condition. Would want to get rid of them as pair.
I got a set of TT500 shifters. Not the best looking anymore but they seem fully functional.
What speed do you need? I think I have a 9speed and a 10speed set of Dura Ace Bar end shifters lying around.
Dibs on the "new n/w 40t chainring, raceface black 130bcd" please.
@smithchild that's not how math works.
@edscoble I already had a jaw surgery. They took unnecessary bits out. nothing to gain here.
@Señor_Bear thanks I already got some.
Leaving the potential hick ups aside for now.
The whole bike is advertised by Dahon as 9.9kg. Since I don't have the cranks, handlebars and wheels I can't do any comparison there and I guess I'll need to wait until I am done building to have a total of saved weight but here are some first numbers:
Stock seatpost + saddle 1135gr vs china carbon post + Fizik Alliante VS 476gr = 659gr saved
China carbon handlebars 114gr uncut
Stock forks 433gr vs china carbon forks 339gr uncut = 94gr saved (so far)
Taking kickstand off = 205gr saved
= Already 958gr saved
Not that bad for the beginning.
The wheel set is ordered and the current weight projection is about 1.4kg for the set.
Additionally I got a Sugino Pista crankset 48T, some cheap lock on grips and a BLB 13t cog.
Wow that looks great. I am aiming for something similar!
