    WW... But it Goes to 11! Drillium (millium) Show Yer Stuff

    Ok guys, as you know I'm trying to go low weight on my fat bike and have drilled and cut some weight off. I know this practice from car racing history but I can see it is applied to cycling too.

    This thread is for all you guys that push the enveloped with drillium! A true art of weight weenies.

    Post your hard earned weight loss parts and bikes that you use. If it's for show please say so. We don't want someone replicating and choppin their parts up to the point of not being able to use it if they plan on riding.

    Don't know what I am talking about?:

    Most Drillium can still function. These are debatable in my mind. (not mine):

    Ohh My! Jon is amazing. Drilling is a pretty long process with those angles and curves of levers, derailleurs etc. Then high polish and then hand paint?! That is true dedication. Can't do that to carbon but I'm looking at my Merlin and thinking hmmmm.
