    Nothing as exotic as yours, but savings is savings right?

    Changed RaceFace air alloy lowriser (242g) to Weyless cfx-2 (165g)

    Changed WTB speed V saddle (426g) to Aireon prolite (210g)

    Total cost - $50, not bad for a 293g savings.

    As it is xmas I did not have a lot of funds to put towards bike purchases.

    for those of you interested, I picked one up today. Almost feel like I stole it, is there anything I'm missing here?

    Serfas ARC Ti to Selle Italia Flite Ti -> maybe 50g
    LP-27 BB to UN-73 -> 100g
    Kalloy Riser to RF Deus flat bar -> apx 130g
    Deore RD to 750 XT -> 50g

    So apx 330g savings for about $200 CDN. Got some great deals including the Flite for 50 clams, a friend has a 2002 RM Vertex TeamSC and took the saddle off and never used it.
