    Well, well, well...New update!...A little more weight saved!. Apart from brake levers, I've changed brakes, SD 7's for SD Ti's and regular housings for I-link. I've also covered the I-link housing with heat shrink tube to prevent dust ingress and avoid squeaking which seems to be the main, if not the only one, problem of the system. Greetings.

    Here is it's new look. Double chainring setup (42-29) and Dura-Ace rear mech. Still using an 11-23 cassette until I shift to an 11-32 (XG-999) one. I hope you like it.

    Are the mech brakes heavier than good hydros?

    Nice build, but how can you do all that Weight Weenie dremeling and still have shift indicators installed? They are totally useless and weigh like 25 grams!

    Take 'em off and put some tape over the holes, easy peasy!


    OH, and pretty clearly you don't do a lot of off-road climbing, so I would definitely recommend going to 1x9 for the drive-train. I have gotten away with it in Oregon on real trails if you pick your gears intelligently enough. You can drop massive weight that way.

    Tks. I don't know, never used discs.

    It isn't, it's just that I'm strong enough to use them. Take into acount that the cassette is not definitive, I'll keep using it until I get an 11-32 one.

    I think you're right, left OGD will go to the drawer. Well, obviously I'm not climbing nonstop, but I need both chainrings...so far. Tks.

    If you ran a 38t front ring with an 11-36 cassette you would have nearly as much range as your current setup.

    Awesome build. I can already smell the Spanish quality behind it. Way to go!!!

    Im thinking about using those heat shrnk tubes too. Do they avoid the creaking sound of the mini i-link housing after washing it with the pressure gun??? Thank you and best regards.

    Fork tunning makes little sense. Just leave dual air and the other leg empty, you will get the same bad behaciour and even less weight. I would put the damping back.
