Hi

As i continue with my new bike build and squeezing every gram off the thing (within reason!) these DT Adapters...

29g each - the main part must be about 3-4mm thick. Im thinking drilling holes in the body between the pins. This shouldnt affect strenght as its not a load bearing part - it wont affect rotor stability (like using a smaller lockring does)

Even if it saved 5 grams id be happy....


Thoughts ?

Well as per my OP i was gonna drill holes inbetween the pins on the adapter.

Making Divots will remove back material vital for disc stability. Whereas a hole will leave a bit of material across the top for the rotor to press agaisnt...

I didnt snear at it - i still to this day think that it's unsafe what you have done with that one. But it works for you - so that's all that matters.


And spokes are made out of hardened steel, no soft aluminium....
