Schmolke carbon bolt upgrade for Rapidfire shifters

Any suggestions for additional weight loss would be great :)
nice work, i was wondering what else i could do to lighten mine.

...you could save some weight with carbon bolts?

i modified 4x M5x20 Schmolke carbon bolts to replace the steel M5x10 shifter pod bolts + M5x17 bar clamp bolts on my XTR Rapidfire shifters.

Thanks for the suggestions, 'indian fire trail' does drilling out the top like that affect the function of the shifters? there were little grooves and indentations that looked important to me :p .

It´s just drilling without destroying those grooves an indentations (that´s why the hole is not prefectly round)...mine work fine...;)
