    Upset SLR Ti saddle that weighs...

    150 grams with a claimed weight of 135! I had just bought it and put it on my brand new Pelouze Model SP5 scale only to see the digital read out indicate the big 150g's.

    Anyone else had that big a difference? I replaced a SLR Gelflow that weighed 236 - so its still a big savings, but now that I'm counting grams...

    My flite TT weighs 9 grams more than the claimed 165.
    I know in my heart that Ellsworth bikes are more durable by as much as double. AND they are all lighter...Tony Ellsworth

    My slr kit carbonio: 153g's

    Very disappointing, claimed weight at 125g. 23% overweight; probably a reason CC and Excel are selling them at $100.

    I've had 3 SLRs.

    They weighed 134, 140, and 142 grams. Hmmm... that's an upwards trend!
