    It takes a little dremel work, but you can also change the bolts on the Martas that control the lever reach adjust from steel to aluminum. They're only M4 bolts, so it only saves a few grams.

    You can get SRP Ti water bottle bolts from Cambria that work well for rotor bolts

    Available in the US too

    Check out Purely Custom . They do these. I got a few earlier this year. (Also they can do a custom logo or saying on 'em too.) They advertise cap and screw at 6g, which sounds right. Think mine was a smidgen lighter.

    I'll try to make the bolts, do you know the difference in weight between carbon levers and aluminum levers?
    thanks

    The difference is pretty minimal, about 6g per lever. I guess you can't swap the aluminum levers out for the carbon ones though. They won't fit, so that's a decision you have to make before you buy your brakes.

    That's pretty good, the extralite cap and bolt come in at 9g, and cost twice as much. Too bad they don't have any pin-up girl designs available

    Yep, 6g for the cap, and 3g for the hollow steel bolt. It's a pretty short bolt though. I actually had to trim a few mm off my steerer tube when I got it because the bolt wasn't long enough to reach the star nut. Maybe you could lose another gram with an aluminum bolt.

    You might run into a problem with clearance on the fork leg depending on how tall the bolt heads are. Even the button head bolts I got from racebolts.com didn't clear my fork leg - they do have kind of a tall head for a button head bolt though. But they work fine on the rear.

    I'll see what happens tonight when I get home. I was also thinking 3 ti bolts and 3 aluminum bolts. Dead wish or what?
    thanks
