White tires?! I know, I'm not really a fan either but at the same time I thing the only bike suitable with white is the spark...rc world cup...right? top of the line model...and found these for $80/pair brand new on ebay...I like the result. 435g/445g each one on my scale (Original tires were 606g each).
Gripshift on the right (1x10) and Twinlock on the left. Much less busy cockpit and hassle free operation
Grip**** XX White? yes....plastidip job.
pulley set upgrade-14.5g/pair (original were old 22.5g) and carbon inner cage also upgrade. Original was 10.15g. New 7g
MRP 36T 89.5g on my scale (spider with 26T/39T was 193g)
So FYI: from were the saving is coming from:
From Hutchinson/pair 26x2.15 (606g each) plus tubes (172g each) to Rocket Ron 26x2.10 plus tubeless valve 7g/pair - Total saving: 667.12g
