    Crave Sl brakes

    Trying to see how much weight could be lost from my braking components? Anyone have weight on my stock setup and what I should get? Or since my brakes work reaaly well, should i just "nickel and dime some other things"

    Option 1 new brakes
    Current Brake Levers- Shimano BL-M506, hydraulic, reach adjust

    Current Brakes- Shimano Deore, hydraulic disc, dual piston, resin pads

    Option 2 nickel and dime...(probably about 3/4 pound)
    New rear tire 135 grams i would save
    post clamp 8g
    pedals 40g
    rotors 80g
    skewers 53g
    stem 27g
    = 343 grams

    Upgrades already completed- tubeless, bar, post, saddle, grips. Current weight 19.9

    Hard to find any weights on the older Deore brakes (current set are the BR-M615/BL-M615), but even the XT brakes could be 100gms lighter for each set of the caliper, levers, and rotors.

    You really aren't dropping any weight from Deore to xt. XTR is lighter, but I think you would lose more weight elsewhere.
