where do you get all the time? days must be 30hrs long in switzerland!nino said:there is a guy offering these kits but i would not do any business with him!
i lost money when i sent him money for parts and never got them and it seems i wasn't the only one. that guy is also a crazy weight-weenie but to a degree where it hurts. he has a bike as light as the lightest one you see on light-bikes.com
he also had it listed and was cheating to get it on 1st place....that's why it got deleted from the moderators of light-bikes. he was a regular in german weight-weenie forums as well but got "pushed" out from the user-community since he is just not an honest guy....
anyway - he sells such kits. VERY expensive.
you can get your SID almost as light by combining parts from different years.
lowers from pre-02
carbon steerer assembly from a SID wordlcup
internals from a '00 or '01 SID race (-156g)
aluminium cantistuds (if needed) and remove the disc adapter by shaving away completely (-9g)
new colour (my black colour weighs 3g. the standard metallic blue was ca. 35g)
replace lower bolts with aluminium (-3g)
total for y fork with the above modifications: 1063g
if you have any questions just feel free to contact me for help.
or do a search in this forum. i once made a thread with the detailed description on all the modifications on my "SID Project"
i just did the search myself:
here's the SID-tuning threads:
this one is lighter (dare i say the lightest?) and is mounted in my winterbiketeamdicky said:How 'bout this fork Ralph?
What rock have you been hiding under you old weight weenie? Have you been too busy installing gold plated sinks in Tom Cruise's new mansion??
Actually my steel fork is quite portly (almost three of your forks put together).nino said:this one is lighter (dare i say the lightest?) and is mounted in my winterbike
